A certain little boy who turns 5 tomorrow has requested this cake for his birthday!!!
I explained to him that "no I wasn't going to make that because he wasn't going to be turning 8 years old!" Anyway on Monday night I asked him again "what cake did he want for his birthday" and he said "an 8 race track". So I said again that "no he was only going to be 5 years old so he couldn't have a number 8 cake".
Tuesday after he got home from school, I said "have you decided what cake you want for your birthday Aaron?" "Yes, I want an 8 racing car track cake". Sigh from me!!! "Aaron how old are you going to be on your birthday?" He gives me this very cheeky grin and says "I am going to be 8"!!!
I just laughed. I told Lyndon when he got back from India today and he grinned and said "ha he's too clever for you"! He's probably right!
So I have baked a single ring cake and I will make a racing car track, but it will NOT be a figure 8! I think why he really likes the above cake is because it has a bridge! So I will (with Lyndon's help) make a bridge across the hole in the centre of the cake and hopefully Mr 5 Years Old will be happy! :-)
Wish me luck! :-)
