Ahhh yes... the cake! I thought about ordering a cake with a construction theme but couldn't find one I liked that wasn't Bob the Builder or Handy Manny. Then I thought I would attempt to use fondant and create hills and such but yeah, I definitely don't have the time for that. So ended up with this idea. A chocolate cake with chocolate frosting to resemble dirt and mud. I then crumbed some Oreo cookies on top and place three construction vehicles to look as if they are working in the dirt. I added a little bit of grass and then voila all done. (Sorry about the crazy blue cake plate. At the time I did not have a cake stand :( but now I do and I can't wait to share it with you.) Here's some more pictures!
|I even added some "dirt" to the dump truck.|
|Yes, I know he's two but the little star candles were so cute!|
Of course a post about a birthday cake would not be complete until I shared the
birthday boy enjoying his delicious treat!
I really think he enjoyed licking the frosting off of his trucks much more than eating the actual cake!
Love that little man!!!
