Disclosure: Cupcakes, Cars and Luigi’s Casa Della Tires post contains affiliate links.
If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you know how I feel about CARS. It brings back memories of a little boy who needed all the CARS toys and games. This week, we’re celebrating Pixar Fest with CARS. Sing it with me….
Slow down, you’re gonna crash
Baby you were screamin’
It’s a blast, blast, blast
Pixar Fest is going on now through September 3 at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park. When you’re there, you’re going to want to experience the fun in Cars Land too!
CARS is such an iconic movie, and I’m sure I’ve watched it dozens of times. It never gets old, nor do the characters. One of my favorite characters from CARS is Luigi, voiced by Tony Shalhoub.
On my recent trip to Pixar for the INCREDIBLES 2 event, I took this picture of Luigi and Guido who were waiting to greet me when I got there. See how happy they are to see me?! They know I love them.
See Luigi’s Casa Della Tires in the background there in Cars Land? That’s what inspired this week’s post! I’ve got a printable Luigi’s Casa Della Tires sign for you and a cupcake recipe that we topped with spare tires…mini donuts.

You can always just stack mini chocolate donuts if you don’t have time to make cupcakes, but I will tell you now, these cupcakes are the BEST chocolate cupcakes I’ve ever had. Like always, Molly made them. We took them to our Memorial Day celebrations, and everyone raved over them. Her friends have already established that she uses magic when she bakes. Trust me.
