Happy birthday to our Weston this week! He is now 4 years old!
Here’s how I made this Construction Birthday Cake for him.
I used a chocolate cake mix and cooked it in one 9″ round cake pan and one smaller round pan. I placed them on a 11 x 17 cardboard and frosted them both with chocolate frosting. I did leave one space on the larger cake without frosting, where I placed the tractor that’s digging into the cake. Then I added the other tractors and the candy. I used the mini unwrapped Kit Kats for the “bricks” and chopped Snickers for the “rocks”. Yes, I did put chocolate frosting on the cardboard next to the cake so I could stick the candy into the frosting to hold it in place.
I found a clip art image online for the construction tape that I put on the signs. I taped the “Caution” sign onto toothpicks so it would stick up on the cake. I taped the other sign right on to the clean side of the cardboard.
I loved making this cake because it was pretty simple and fast, yet it looked amazing.
It was a huge success!
