This fire engine birthday cake was the second cake I made from the movie Cars. It was made for my son’s 3rd birthday. He wanted “Red” the fire engine. It was a chocolate cake covered in marshmallow fondant.
I used almond bark for the ladder and side panels of the truck. The wheels were wooden wheels purchased at Hobby Lobby. I used the wheels with dowel rod axles to support the cake board and lift the cake off of the ground.
The other fixtures on the truck were made from fondant and gum paste. I used silver luster dust for the metallic surfaces.
