Race Track Cake for Griffin

My beautiful boy turned 3 this weekend!  His most recent obsession the past couple months has been race cars - and his favorite color is green.  So we came up with a cute little party to make his day special.  The bottom tier of this cake is dark chocolate cake with chocolate cream filling. The small top tier is vanilla confetti cake with pistachio whipped cream filling.  I used a black frosting sheet cut into squares to get the checkered effect without having to pipe all those little squares around the cake.  It saved a lot of decorating time.  The race car on top is his favorite from the Cars 2 movie (Francesco), and the "Piston Cup" topper was just a cheap little thing I found at Party City and then customized a little bit.  I also shared a picture of the invitation.
