Cool Homemade Garbage Truck Cake

I used two 9×13 chocolate cakes, one for the body and the other for the wheels of this garbage truck cake. Froze the cake and then cut in the shape of the garbage truck to match the birthday invitation.

Frosted the entire cake with a thin layer of icing. Froze cake again, then used green and gray frosting for the body. Piped the details on the exterior of the truck. Used the star tip to fill in the fenders, windows, and other areas. Cut three circles of cake from the second 9×13 cake and frosted them black. Used the star tip for the hubcaps.

  1. did you use a pan or free hand it? Where did you get the invitation. My son is obsessed with Waste management and I am at a loss! Any advise would be great!

  2. This cake looks awesome!! From the mother of one garbage loving boy to another..can I ask where you possibly found garbage truck invites or did you make them??? Thanks for your time!

  3. Hi,
    Love your cake! couple of questions…how did you shape the main part of the cake into a garbage truck? did you do this free hand? and also where did you get the waste management birthday invitations?

  4. I blew up the invitation to the size I wanted the cake. Then I cut it out and used it as a template. Simply laid it on the cake and cut around it.

  5. That is so cool. I am so glad to know that I am not the only one with a garg=bage truck obsessed child. I was beginning to worry but now I can sleep better at night lol.
