Convertible Car with a Flat Tire and Traffic Police

Somehow, between attending meetings and meeting deadlines last week, I agreed to make a birthday cake for a surprise party for one of my officemates.  Even now, it is still a blur and I’m still not quite sure why I agreed to (1) make a cake during a weekday (2) make a cake with only 2 days notice knowing I will be working those 2 whole days and I will be attending a private launch party for Crate and Barrel the night before the birthday party.

I did not have much time to do the cake so I just planned for a simple one.  The other thing was the fact that it was a de-celebration and not a celebration.  The ideas were to make a kiddie cake to signify his mental age (yes, people can be mean!), basketball cupcakes with the words “You Suck” (the birthday celebrator plays basketball) and maybe something relating to the birthday celebrator’s blue Porsche but do something with it (smoke coming out?  flat time?).  The end result was this cake — blue convertible with a flat tire and a traffic policeman issuing a ticket, which I managed to do in the amount of time I had.
