This wheels on the bus cake was made for my 2 year old girl who loves the nursery rhyme "Wheels on the bus go round and round". The cake was easy enough but the red color was the biggest thing and in the end I didn't get any where near the color I wanted. It turned out to be an orange bus. I tried to use lemon juice in my icing to make the red come out as RED and tried to put loads of coloring but still no luck. My baby still recognized it as Bus so I am happy.
I used various biscuits on this cake to get the features...wheels, door and for the people. I iced the biscuits to enhance and make it look like people. I used lollies for the light and just aluminum foil on a toothpick for the side mirrors and the wipers.
This was a big hit for my daughters' 14th Bday! I baked two cakes in bread pans and stacked on top of each other. I then frosted the cake with butter-cream stars. Looking at a real picture of a VW helped with decorating..even has windshield wipers and mini donut wheels.
