My Son's CAR Birthday Cake

Hooray for this car cake! I got the idea from and I created my own version of a car. It was supposed to be a race car but it was easier for me to create any car. I wasn't aiming for a race car but any car that my cake will be formed. It turned up pretty for children's eyes and they even want to eat it right away. They wanted the part with M&Ms chocolate. It really played a trick. Try making this cheap cake and everyone will appreciate the effort you exerted on making it plus, it's not expensive and it's attractive for kids. Below is the recipe by Kraft. By the way, I used ready-to-use vanilla frosting.

1 pkg. (12 oz.) prepared pound cake
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
1/2 tsp. food coloring, any color
1 piece chewy fruit snack roll (5 inch), cut into 4 lengthwise strips
4 OREO Cookies
4 yellow candy-coated chocolate pieces
2 Tbsp. decorating icing, multiple colors

PLACE cake on cutting board; cut into pieces to resemble a race car.

TINT whipped topping with food coloring; spread evenly over cake.

DECORATE top of cake with fruit roll strips to resemble racing stripes and front grille of the car. Place 2 cookies on each side of car for the wheels. Place yellow chocolate pieces on front and back of car to resemble headlights and taillights. Draw windows on car and write the child's age on top of cake with icing. Use remaining icing to decorate cake as desired. Store in refrigerator.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Celebrate a special occasion with the kids by making this colorful cake. For added fun, invite the kids to help decorate this special treat.

How to Frost A Cake

If the cake is very soft and crumbly, apply a “crumb coating” to prevent cake crumbs from mixing with the frosting. Spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire cake, then let stand 5 to 10 min. or until frosting is set. Spread remaining frosting over cake.
