This Construction Truck Birthday Cake is a simple cake to make. I baked two 13 x 9 inch cakes and leveled them with a cake leveler. I used canned chocolate frosting for the filling between the two cakes. I crumb iced the entire cake with canned white frosting and then dyed more white frosting with brown, green, and orange Wilton Cake Icing Dye.
I frosted the entire cake with the brown icing and then lined the top edge with chocolate rocks that you can find at specialty candy stores. (The kids really loved the chocolate rocks). I used truck toys that my kids already had but they can be purchased at toy stores. I bordered the cake with green frosting using the “grass” decorating tip (Wilton #233).
I crushed some graham crackers and put them on the cake as the dirt and then placed the trucks. I used the orange frosting to write the message. I used the extra chocolate rocks in the back of the dump truck and it was a good thing I did because all of the kids at the party wanted the rocks on their piece of cake.
I made this bulldozer cake for my son's 2nd birthday party. It was a hit. The cake consisted of 2 9x13 cakes stacked on top of each other. The blade and top portion of the cake is 2 loaf pans divided and shaped.
The roll cab and blade lifters are made with pipe cleaners. The tracts were made from 1 8inch round cake and shaped to look like tracts. Then I iced it with an 18 star tip and outlined it in black using a 18 star tip. The pipe is a small wooden rod covered with icing. The dirt is crushed Oreo cookies.
The icing recipe I used was the Wilton buttercream. I wrote happy birthday on the dozer blade.
I made this Crane Truck Birthday Cake Design for my son's 3rd birthday. He loves mighty machines and of course picked one of the more complicated ones, a crane truck! I baked 2 9x13 cakes and then cut and stacked them into the shape of the truck. I made marshmallow fondant to cover and decorate with.
The crane was simply a plastic cake dowel covered in MMF and stuck into the cake (at the last moment of course because it was quite heavy). I used dental floss to attach the crane hook.
All my hard work paid off. My son loved the cake!
