A party fit for any car lover… and in our family’s case, our little toddler!

This summer, Leo started showing a clear interest in cars and trucks. I think it all started with a Tonka truck with purchased for him – and from that point on, our house has just been filled with all sorts of toy vehicles. (Everywhere, may I add.)

I’m all about themed birthday parties. When he turned one, we threw him an amazing Jungle Party, which took place in a hall. In my family’s Filipino tradition, turning one calls for a huge celebration.

For Leo’s second birthday, we kept it small but of course, still stuck with a theme. Hall or no hall, I still wanted to go all out for food and decorations. Without a doubt, I put together a car-themed birthday party and you know what? No regrets. I had so much fun with it.

For Leo’s car-themed birthday party, I emphasized our dining area: complete with a colour scheme and fitting snacks and desserts.

Traffic Light Rice Cereal Treats

Made up of fondant and rice cereal treats, these were so fun to make! (Psst: to save time, I purchased ready-made rice cereal treats so that I can just focus on the fondant work).

Motor Oil

Yup, our guests were gulping on motor oil… er, I mean, soda! Duh!

Just remove the labels off of your favourite dark soda and place a label that indicates it as “Motor Oil.” So easy, right?!

Race Flag Cupcakes

Again, with these treats, I opted for a quick cake mix so that I could place all of my energy and focus on the fondant pieces.

Jumper Cables & Nuts and Bolts

When it comes to themed parties, it’s fun to give well-known snacks new names. This way, they can fit right in with your theme.

A homemade chocolate cake, formed to be the number 2 (with the help of two circle cakes and one square one). The black and white panels are made of fondant. The green trim and grey road is made up of my homemade buttercream (check out my buttercream frosting recipe here!). Also, I borrowed two of Leo’s Hot Wheels cars – which he took back right after he blew candles.
