Ok, this construction cake was SOOOOO fun to do! It takes me back a few years to when I used to make cute vehicle and construction birthday cakes for my boys when they were younger.
My firstborn just turned 16, which means no more fun cakes like this for me….So I’m always happy when someone orders one!
This cake for Luke was a 15″x 11″ single-layer confetti cake with vanilla buttercream. After the initial crumb coat and a smooth green layer of buttercream was done, I sketched out where I wanted the# 2 to go and iced that part with chocolate buttercream. I then carefully sprinkled the still-soft chocolate buttercream with crushed Oreo cookies to look like dirt.
Once the road was done, I piped green buttercream grass around the #2 and as a border, arranged the machines, and added the candy rocks to finish up the construction site.
Such a fun cake to do…Hope you had a terrific 2nd birthday, Luke!
