I made this Construction Site Cake for my son’s birthday as he is absolutely loves diggers and trucks. The Cake is 5 packets of butter cake mix, 4 made in a large rectangular tin and 1 in a smaller loaf tin which I cut an “L” shape from and stuck on the top of the cake with popsicle sticks. I dug a “trench” (for the pipes) and then iced the whole cake with chocolate fudge frosting. (Recipe for frosting from the Crabapple Cupcake Bakery Cookbook). I bought the diggers, trucks and signs etc from a toy store. The “pipes” are vanilla wafer tubes, the colored rocks are chocolate which I bought from The Chocolate Box Store, The big rocks are Crunchie Rocks and the truck is full of chocolate covered fruit and nuts. My son absolutely loved it, he still talks about the digger cake and begs for chocolate rock to put in his trucks!
My son loves anything to do with tractors (farming or construction). We have a lot of construction going on in the area that he gets a kick out of everytime we pass it. So I knew he would have a construction birthday party with a Construction Site Cake.
I just made a yellow cake (from a box) and covered it with chocolate icing. I used a chocolate cake crumbled up with a few crushed Oreos for the "dirt" on top and around the edges. I used a Fruit By The Foot Fruit roll up for the orange barrier you usually see around construction sites.
I bought the construction cone candles online. I made the sign out of cardboard, toothpicks, a printed sign from my computer (and wheels I stole off a toy car).
It was super simple and tasted great too! It was a big hit at the party and my son LOVED it!
I made this Construction Site Birthday Cake for my lovely wee niece for her 4th birthday because she loved Bob the Builder. After thinking about it for a couple of weeks it was quite easy to put together.
Firstly I started off with a normal Victoria sponge recipe to make the rectangle 'stage'. To decorate it I covered it with green butter icing to represent grass (you could use grey icing for concrete). For the road I used some After Eight mints and at the end of it I crushed some chocolate biscuits to represent the rubble that 'Roly' was flattening.
In the other corner of the cake I placed 'Muck' beside an up turned fairy cake covered with butter icing and some more crushed biscuits on top. And of course there is Bob the Builder supervising too!
