I made this cake for my nephew's 5th birthday earlier this year. It was inspired by the cake I made for my son last year (see below). When my cousin asked me to make a race car cake, I was thrilled, but there was only one problem...I had to figure out how to ship the cake from California to Philadelphia. I was always reluctant about shipping cakes (even fake ones) because there's just soooo many things that could go terribly wrong. But I figured, I'll go ahead give it a try and see what happens.

From left to right: Coconut-Almond and Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Cookies
My due date is fast approaching and I've been crazy busy trying to get ready for my little bundle to arrive. Can you say nesting? It must be contagious because my husband is doing the same thing. For the past few weeks, while I've been cleaning and organizing around the house, he's been rounding up our son's old baby stuff from the garage and assembling baby furniture. Oh yes, I got very emotional the first time I saw the crib. I never thought we'd be going through this again. I feel very blessed.
