Those are the ones that turned out well.
The reason I bring this up now, is that I have been thinking about attempting to make them for Jack's birthday.

Or do I just attempt to make them next weekend and plan to buy a cake if I have another car cake disaster? Keep in mind that greasing the pan takes about half a day.
I guess we'll see how this weekend goes!
