tirecakes

This weekend I helped celebrate my nephew’s 6th birthday Cars style.  For the kids’ cakes, my sister poured chocolate cake batter into donut pans, popped them in the oven, and out came cake tires!  We each got one of our own and customized the sidewalls with frosting and candy; the kids were genius decorators!  We all kept calling them donuts, but they were lighter than that.  What a simple to handle and festive alternative to cupcakes.  I couldn’t get enough of the toppings (surprise!) and have to say that the cake to frosting ratio here was perfect (which is hit or miss with regular cupcakes).  Tirecakes taste nothing like burnt rubber.
