Tricycle Birthday Cake

Last weekend I had such a great time making this tricycle cake for a little boys 2nd birthday. The inspiration for the cake came from these cute tricycle invitations and cupcake toppers from Esty shop The Green Grass Grows.
Sadly it rained non-stop the day of the Birthday so the original party plan of all the kids bringing their tricycles/ bikes to the local park to play didn't work out. It sounds like the birthday boy still had a great day and the cake was a real hit.
The cake was my favorite vanilla cake, double the recipe was enough to make the two layer 8 inch cake, the 6 inch cake and 8 cupcakes to match. Both the cake and cupcakes were frosted in yummy vanilla buttercream and covered with fondant. 
Happy 2nd Birthday Rocco!!
