I made this cake for my 2 year old's birhtday party. It was a lot of fun to make. Not as hard as I initially thought. It's alot easier as well when all the fondant is made beforhand. The wheels are made from cruller doughnuts and dipped in chocolate. The cake itself is on a piece of cardboard that is sitting on a couple of small containers to give it some lift.
When I showed it to my son his face lit up and he went "Wow". I thought to myself that is why I spend hours doing this. My son then continued and said "doughnuts". All he saw was that the wheels were made out of doughnuts and that is what he wanted. Who cares about the rest of the cake. The cake that I slaved over and made special just for him. Ha, he is only 2. I think I do more of the cake decorating for myself anyway.
As far as the taste goes, it was great. Nothing fancy just a chocolate cake with swiss meringue buttercream. Not that my son would know that either. He could barely be taken away from his new toys long enough to blow out the candles. As far as eating it, he had a piece in front of him but did not touch it. He did finally have a piece two days later. He is such a little monkey and I love him to bits.
I've posted the recipe before so you can find it here here
