After browsing on this site for ideas, I decided on a Construction Birthday Cake with construction vehicles.
I made a 10", an 8" and a 6" cake to form the three tiers. Once I had iced them in between the layers, I used a kitchen knife to carve the roads winding around the cake. I then iced the whole cake with chocolate buttercream frosting.
The trees were green buttercream that I let harden overnight. Some trees had a Twix bar as a trunk and others a pretzel rod. I used a star tip to make the pull out lines on the evergreen trees and squiggles on the other trees.
I bought construction toys at the Dollar store and cone candles at the Party store. I added chocolate sprinkles to the hole where the digger had "dug" to make it look more like dirt.
It was a really easy cake to make and my son loved it for his second birthday!
This Construction Birthday Cake was super easy. Chocolate cake 9x13, chocolate frosting, shredded green coconut, crushed Oreos, 4 chocolate cupcakes (to make the cliff the excavation is digging into), and toy construction vehicles.
I made the cake and cupcakes then froze them. My husband came up with the idea for the cliff. He took 4 cupcakes and cut them into blocks. I put the icing on top to stick them together and put the coconut all over for grass. And then we piled up the crushed Oreos make dirt. Everyone loved it!
My son loves tractors and construction trucks, so I did a little of both for his birthday. I made a construction birthday cake from a 11*13 white cake with a fresh strawberry buttercream inside. Finished it with a neoclassic buttercream.
I used crushed Nilla wafers for the road and border and pile of dirt. I then used chocolate raisinets and yogurt raisinets for the different rocks. I was going to do spun sugar for the hay pile, but ran out of time.
This was simple to do and he loved it!

I made this Construction Birthday Cake for my son's first birthday: it's two round cakes sandwiched together for the height. I iced it in butter icing - half yellow and half chocolate. I made the road from fondant icing with Tic Tacs as the lines.
The "sand" is sugar coloured yellow and the "dirt" is chocolate biscuits in the food processor. The rocks are honeycomb broken into pieces and I bought a cheap construction set for the accessories.
We took a 1/2 sheet cake, and cut a corner out. We used rocks (that are made at the candy; we found them at a local chocolate shoppe). The bridge was made by cutting 2 triangles out of the cake. We cut off the corner and put a graham cracker on top.
We made the road with Oreo cookie crumbs. Used glazed donut holes to make the boulders.
