Taylar's Birthday Cake

This year is the first year I've ever had to make Taylar's cake. My awesome sis in law (come visit her blog here: Spatula City Cakes usually makes all of Taylar's cakes. However, since she moved to Arizona that has left me in charge. I swear I have been stressing over this cake for months. I had different visions of what I wanted and then saw a Disney's Car's cake shaped in a number 5 and thought, yes thats perfect!! I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. The Flynn Rider she already had (she had a Rapunzel but lost it a few months ago). The Rapunzel came from one of her presents she is going to get at her birthday party on wednesday night. The tower I got from The Disney Family website. Mine obviously isn't anywhere as close to as good as theirs. I only added the single part of the tower instead of the added part like on theirs. I wanted it to sit a little more balanced on the cake. I put tinfoil on it and frosted it up. The tower didn't turn out as great as I'd hoped but it still will work and she will be happy. I did pain the inside of the tower to look like the walls of the tower in the movie. I also made a paper lantern as a decoration for her party. I had originally planned on having the fake tea light candles under it and to have it sitting as a display, but you couldn't see the light so I decided to hang it over the table instead.
