This Tank Cake was really easy! I modeled this tank cake after the great ones I saw on this site. It was a HUGE hit with my husband and his buddies!
I used yellow cake mix and made 1 13X9 cake. I cut rectangles out of the ends of the cake and used those rectangles as the top part of the cake. The icing was made tan by mixing a little bit of chocolate frosting with a whole tub of vanilla.
The green camo look was made by putting drops of green icing and swirling it into shapes with a spoon. Oreo cookies were put on each side and I defined the tread with black Twizzlers and black icing. For the main gun I used an Oreo stick.
I made this Tank Birthday Cake from 2 packets of Devils Food cake mix and separated into a 9x13 glass dish and a 6x8 oval glass dish. Separately iced the 2 cakes with bottle green regal ice and stuck together with Betty Crocker frosting.
I used Oreos for the wheels and cut up liquorice for the tracks stuck on by the frosting and covered an Oreo with the icing for the lid. I used 3 Mikados together for the gun then I used frosting and crushed up Cadbury's Flake for the mud and stuck some of my son's Army toys in the mud. The man in the tank I bought and chopped the legs off.
I made this tank cake for my father's birthday that loves tank models. It required a lot of time to do it! The grass layer is made of vanilla cake filled with vanilla custard cream and covered with green colored coconut. The tank is made of chocolate cake with a nut cream filling, covered with nut butter cream and then with homemade marshmallow fondant.
All decorations are made off marshmallow fondant and royal icing. The gun is a chocolate and cereal straw. I's an all edible cake except for some toothpicks.
I've take as model king tiger tank pictures to build the cake. Hope you like it!
We were inspired to make this homemade tank birthday cake from this website. I made this for my son's 6th birthday. The bottom of the tank is a 9 x 13 pan, the top is a bread loaf pan. The gun pointing out is a cereal straw that was dipped in melted chocolate chips. I used melted chocolate and butterscotch chips to give it a camouflaged look. The tracks are pieces of Hershey's bars and the wheels are halves of Oreos. I topped it off with some of my son's play army men. It was the hit of the party.
My brother made this Tank Birthday Cake for my son's first birthday, which was Military themed. My husband was in the Marine Corps at the time, and I thought this cake was awesome. It took him about 6 hours to complete it, mostly due to the fact that he had drew the camouflage.
I think he used two sheet cakes, and cut the cake to look like a tank. Outside ingredients are self explanatory.
