This is one of my favorite cakes! It is very easy to make and tastes amazing! Like no joke, I’m pretty honest when it comes to food, and this cake is great! I’ve done this 3 times- once for Brocks 5th birthday, and twice for Beaus 1st.
This is what you will need
Small construction trucks for decorations
Extra oreos that have gone through the food processor (dirt)
Candy Letters- I just bought orange and yellow ones from the store
I used the recipe above, and made the cake in different size pans so that I could layer it. You can pretty much pick whatever size you want. And double the recipe if you are cooking for a big group (plus the leftovers are awesome too).
Cook cakes and let cool.
Make the filling and spread over the entire base cake.
Layer the cake alternating between cake and filling. (the cake is likely to look pretty awful at this point)
Cover entire cake with icing and smooth.
Place trucks, cones, signs, candles, letters etc on the cake where you want.
Add oreo crumbs to look like dirt. I generally put oreos all the way around the base (it covers up the icing mess ups) and also put oreo crumbs in the truck beds. Just make it look like a work scene.
Gobble it up!
Also, to go with this cake (yes the cake is the important part-ha), this was how I decorated for the actual party. Oriental trading and Birthday Expressions are where I bought some of the decorations and the “Birthday Zone” caution tape.
A few small things I did were (please ignore the low-quality pictures. It was an old camera)
“FUEL” drinks: Sunny D wrapped in caution tape with FUEL stamped onto a Hexagon and taped on.
“Concrete Mix” cups: to hold the ice cream
I bought orange cones and work hats for all the kids who attended to use as party favors. These also worked great to decorate with before I gave them away!
I made a few of my own signs to spell out HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROCK
I reused some of the decorations for Beau’s 1st party.
