I made this school bus cake for my sister in law who was a bus driver for many many years. I started making cakes and decorating them just for fun and came up with this for her birthday.

I made two pound cakes in loaf pans. I trimmed them to the shape of a bus. Colored buttercream icing, the bumper is black licorice, stop sign is a vanilla wafer covered with red melted candy, children are mini vanilla wafers, the lights on top are orange M&M’s, and the wheels are chocolate donuts. Can’t forget the headlights are Chiclets gum.

Gave the cake to her at school, she wouldn’t cut it until she got home.
