Note: Oliver's birthday cake and party were featured at Apartment Therapy on February 14, 2012!
After much deliberation, and total disregard of the circus theme I had planned for his birthday party, Oliver landed on "choc-a-lete car cake" as his cake of choice. I modeled it after a Playsam car 1) because I love to look at them, 2) because this is what all of us draw for Oliver when he asks us to draw him a car, and 3) because he is getting a convertible Playsam for his birthday. Oh, and 4), because cutting a layer cake in half and being done with it is a lot easier than any of this.
