Construction Birthday Cake

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!

    THANK YOU so much for this wonderful idea! I will be attempting to make this for my son’s 2nd birthday next Saturday (and I’m hoping it turns out half as good as yours did!). Question for you before I begin, how much candy did you use? Will one bag of each of the kit kat/snickers do? Did you use full size snicker bars or minis?
