This was for my son's 3rd Birthday. We did 2 small parties with both our playgroups which worked out because I wasn't sure how I wanted to do the cake, the figure 8 or not. So I tried both. I baked 2- 9" round cakes and cut a small section out of one so the other cake could fit right up against it. I then frosted the edges and pressed green dyed coconut against it. For the top I placed 2 cups in the middle of the circles and then sprinkled crushed oreos around them. I removed the cups and added more coconut. I used tic-tacs for the road lines and his favorite cars for on top.
