The concept cars needed to be explained to the kids, but after they understood, they were all picking out which one was theirs.
I used a tube pan to bake two cakes, then joined them together to make a figure eight. I had to curve off an edge of one of the cakes so they wouldn't look like two awkward round cakes attempting to mingle. I frosted the sides and most of the top with a chocolate butter frosting, then piped on a road of gray-tinted decorator icing. I smoothed the bumps in the road with a metal spatula dipped in hot water, then added Cocoa Puffs and granola for rocks. The most fun was free-handing the white road paint and lettering. What a treacherous roadway.

And he liked the cupcakes I brought to his class, because they looked like they came from the store. (The deli trays helped a lot.)
