My son loves school buses. I got this great idea of a to celebrate his birthday with a Homemade School Bus Birthday Cake. This was my second cake using fondant. A little bit more difficult than a regular circle or rectangle cake. The hardest part, which I should have planned better, was the support under the bus to set it up off the flat surface. By the end of the day it began to collapse and squish the cake tires.

The fondant gave me a few problems, leaving some imperfections that I tried to cover with other details. Everyone that saw the cake just adored it and thought it was great.
