I am making a cake for my hubbies friend. It is for her 2 year old's birthday. She keeps changing her mind. First it was a cars cake, then a license plate cake and now she is just wanting something plain and simple. Not too much colored icing.
I mean I guess I could just ice a cake with white icing and maybe write happy birthday on it but that seems kinda boring to me.
Any ideas on what I can do that would be a good compromise? Use some decorating skills but still keep it very simple...

how about a off white( maybe like your driving through the desert,not alot of grass) cake, then put a road going across it and just pipe a little bit of grass along the road here and there. stick a hot wheels or cars on the road. you could even make a sign for route 66 =)

How about carve the cake in the shape of a "2". You could ice in white or off white and decorate with some dots, stipes, stars, etc.

Here's one I found, looks more for a girl, but you could tailor to boy easily.

HTH. Good Luck.

How about a soft yellow double layer round cake with multi colored pastel polka dots and a big bow on top or a teddy bear cake with an ice cream cone decorated to look like a party hat.
