Piping bags were filled with a rainbow of colored frosting choices. 

There were candies, sprinkles, marshmallows and more, all available to be used in any and all combination — and indeed they were.

More than 30 of the cars were Bugattis; more are expected to take part in the weekend-long Historic Festival event.
