Ryan is beyond OBSESSED with cars so Aaron and I decided to give him "cars heaven" for a day to celebrate his birthday.
Just to give you an indication on my "not so talented" baking skills-
I sent my husband this picture of the finished product of my car cupcake while he was at work.
After telling me they were pretty sweet and that he wanted one, he then asked where I bought them..?
I was like "ummm honey, I made them"
What little faith he has in my baking skills:)
I think I have burned one too many cakes in the oven HA. I don't blame him.
Moral of the story---You can totally do this at home.
If I can make them, you can make them.
I saw the original idea HERE and just baked my little heart out to make it come to life.
Mini Chocolate Chips
and a White Chocolate baking Bar
Step #1. Bake your cupcakes.
**I substitute applesauce for oil and egg whites for eggs.
Step #2. Make your Frosting.
I made THIS easy 4 ingredient frosting and added LOTS of red food coloring to make it really red.
Step #3. Make your "windshield"
Then take 2 mini chocolate chips for the "eyes"
((I stuck the little windshied in the freezer for about 10 minutes so it hardens up:) )
and 4 brown M&M's for your wheels.
And that my friends, is how you make a car cupcake.
My two year old absolutely LOVED them.
I think I'm getting this whole "boy thing" down.
Trust me if you have boys, they are a hit! XO
