Cool Homemade 3D Garbage Truck Cake

For my son who was obsessed with garbage trucks I made this Garbage Truck Cake. I had a hard time finding any online so I ended up making two pound cakes in bread pans , cut and stacked them. Most are squares or rectangles and I set it up on two rectangles to attach the wheels to.

The other cake I rounded the top and set on top of the longest rectangle. I used chocolate covered donuts for the wheels, M&M’s (both whole and cut in half) for the headlights and WM and cheez its for the windows.

  1. This is a gorgeous cake! My son’s 3rd birthday is approaching and I would love to make him this cake! He too is obsessed with garbage trucks and was just a garbage man last weekend for Halloween! How exactly did you cut the pound cakes?–You really only needed 2 pound cakes??? It looks fantastic. Please provide more details if you can!

    Thank You!

  5. Hi, love your cake. I thought my grandson’s were the only ones interested in trash trucks. We drive down the street and “Trash truck”. Getting ideas to make one for them. Great job.
