Racetrack Cake

90 mins (prep 60, cooking 30)

One of my kid's favorite things about their birthdays is watching me create their birthday cakes. This is one that I made for DS#1's 6th Birthday - I got the "pattern" from Family Fun. I printed the checkered flags and banner on the computer, "laminated" by using clear packaging tape on the front and back and then trimming to fit. The number of servings (16-20) is a guesstimate, as well as prep/cook time since it depends on your cake recipe and how quickly you decorate.
