My son is obsessed with trash trucks, so for his 3rd Birthday he wanted a trash truck birthday party. Ok Trash Truck party stuff is nearly impossible to find! I made this cake out of a regular square cake pan, I made two cakes and put funfetti frosting in the middle. The trash trucks I found at Walmart, they are by Matchbox. He was so excited when we brought out the cake, it was a huge hit and so easy to make.
My son's favorite truck was his orange garbage truck. So for his 2nd birthday I've decided to make a replica of the truck.
I've covered the garbage truck cake with fondant and made the details with tubed red icing. I used Oreo cookies for the wheels and black licorice for the chimneys, and it is where we inserted the candles.
