I baked a large sheet cake, then measured and cut to the size I needed for this Pick Up Truck cake. I filled and stacked the cake in more or less to the shape of a truck. I then wrapped in plastic wrap and placed in freezer for a couple of days so it would be stiff enough for me to carve and shape.
After it was shaped, I crumb coated with frosting and covered in black fondant. I used fondant for accents, donuts for tires (covered in fondant), and small pretzel sticks for the plow. It was really fun watching it come together. A friend wanted to surprise her husband with this cake for his birthday. I used pics of his truck while making it. She was pleased and he was excited.
