I Heart Desserts

When you become a mom, you are thrust into a whole new world that requires a whole new skill set. For example, I used to be really good at giving a relaxing facial, staying up-to-date with seeing the latest movies, running a spa, and hosting parties with trendy cocktails and chic food (I use to actually make homemade potato chips served with caviar).

Over the past four years, I have discovered that I could be good at changing an exploding diaper without gagging, sanitizing surfaces multiple times a day, singing lullabies, cooking dinner with a crying baby on my hip, and throwing parties for little 3-feet people. One of my favorite parts about these little parties is making the cake the night before. I always do something homemade, try to be creative, and choose a design the birthday boy will love.

This year Turner's second birthday party was themed after the movie Cars, which he loves. Here is the racetrack cake I made.

Hop on over to for more delicious entries!
