Cars cake

This is the cake I made for my little boy for his 2nd birthday! I did it all while big and pregnant and let me tell you it was not easy... lets just say I made myself SICK over it, literally. This is why I have not made any other cakes while being pregnant and I'm not sure when I will be able to get back into the groove of baking. This pregnancy has been really hard, but oh I am so excited to have another baby, he will be here in just a few short weeks! After that I will need to get the hang of having two kids before I jump back into the cake world. I'll keep you updated!
Also, just a side note, the structure of this cake was really  bad because I tried to fill it with pudding instead of buttercream (I will never do that again). The weight of the fondant just squished all the pudding out the sides, not to mention it made the cake too gooey. So that is my explanation for the leaning tiers that look bloated. :) I also like to use the excuse that I was pregnant and miserable, so it's definitely not my best work. O well, you learn by making mistakes!
