Number shaped race track cupcake cake for a Cars themed birthday party

We created this cupcake cake for a 3rd birthday Cars The Movie Themed Birthday Party - we delivered this cupcake cake to the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale. The race track was designed in the shape of a 3 for the birthday boy's age. Cupcake cake is iced with buttercream and the track is made from fondant. Our customer selected one of new variations of our Simply Sweets classic flavors - "black and white" which is our very popular Double Chocolate Sourcream white chocolate chips added (in addition to the chocolate chips).

customer feedback: It was amazing and the Black & White is the best thing that has ever happened to me food wise!

This cake was similar to a cupcake cake we created for a 3rd birthday Speedracer themed party:
