My son requested a “snowplow” party for his 4th birthday. Not finding anything quite like this for a cake, I improvised a Snowplow Cake using a basic idea for a truck cake and added the plow.
I used 3 frozen pre-prepared pound cakes, and cut them into the body, the cab, the axles and the plow. I think frosted all of it with orange frosting, doing my best to match the color to a photo I’d found of a municipal snowplow.
I then decorated the cake with yellow and red M&M’s for lights on the top and back, half-mini marshmallows for headlights, and a chocolate Twizzler for the exhaust pipe (it’s hard to see in the photo, but it’s attached to the cab). For “salt” in the back of the truck, I used white icing covered in decorative sugar. I added white icing for windows, and a few black icing stripes for the grill. For the wheels, I used chocolate doughnuts.
Finally, I put a pile of “snow” next to the plow, by mixing mini marshmallows with a bit of white icing.
