This Firetruck birthday cake was made using two large loaf pans and three small ones.

The two large cakes were stacked to form the back of the truck. One small cake became the middle and two others were stacked to make the truck’s cab. I used buttercream, tinted with 1 1/2 jars of red icing, for the body of the truck. The hose and middle part are gum paste, tinted gray. I piped the outline of the body in black buttercream and used oreo cookies, minus the filling, for the tires. The fireman is from a Lego Firetruck set.
