I’m super excited about the cake I’m going to share with you today! We were asked to make a 3-D dump truck from Construction Pals. Again, I’d never heard of them so we did a little research…
Check out all these adorable birthday party supplies:
I carved the truck out of two stacked cakes. Then I iced him in buttercream and covered him with fondant. I quickly found out that using fondant panels was much easier than using one giant sheet of yellow fondant. To give you an idea of size, he stood about a foot and a half tall and was sitting on a 20-inch square board (I think).
In all, I probably spent over 10 hours on him. He gave us some major troubles mid-stream but we got it all worked out in the end.
Happy 1st Birthday, Braydon!
