I am a 15 year old boy and I was trying to decide what to get my little brother for his birthday. He told me that he wanted a tank cake. So I got on this website and got some ideas and it turned out great.
I used a regular pound cake for the entire structure of the cake. I used cream cheese icing on the entire cake and just used food coloring to give it various colors to look camouflaged. I used Oreo cookies to make the tires of the tank.
I used a candle covered in black cream cheese icing as the gun of the tank. My little brother loved it and he wants to have a new homemade cake every year.
