2nd Birthday Construction cake

Yesterday friends and family helped celebrate Tristan's 2nd Birthday. Tristan's mom contacted us and requested a special cake for her little guy who loves seeing big trucks and gets excited to see them working so she thought a "Construction" theme was in order.

A 3 layered slab cake of chocolate vegan filled with Oreo cookies & cream vegan butter cream. We then covered it in chocolate vegan butter cream and used Oreo cookie crumbs for the dirt.

The mound of dirt on the left side was made up of cake from leveling and carving. We also placed the slab on a larger board to enable additional details like the fondant road.

We carved the left corner and added the little truck to appear as if digging into the cake.  The little digger and dump trucks are purchased dinky toys and a little something for Tristan to play with afterwards.

All the details like the rocks, signs, pylons and Johnny on the spot are made from fondant / gum paste.

Happy 2nd Birthday Tristan!
