This Homemade Police Van Cake was a very rushed attempt at a surprise for my son who was coming back from school and had no idea that I was planning anything. I used 3 loaves, 2 of which I stacked on top of each other and the third one, I halved and tapered off to create the front of the van.

I then used his lego windows and doors for the windscreen and driver windows and various shaped biscuits for the wheels and fence around the cake base. I then simply used a toy police set of his to add the police station and policemen. Though time did not allow me to create these images with icing, the end result looked realistic enough: at least for us anyway.
