Construction Birthday Cake recipe

Sooo easy. Made this for my son's first birthday and boy was he a happy little fellow. :-) I did use something else as filling though. Try the Jello, no bake Oreo for more

This cake was perfect for my son's second birthday! I was looking for a recipe that had something to do with cars or trucks but that didn't take a lot of time. This was definitely it! I simply baked the cake earlier in the day and decorated it right before our guests arrived. All of the grown ups thought it was super creative! And, of course, my son was thrilled to have the trucks to play with. I used whipped white icing and only iced it on top and part way down the sides. That way the actual cake was showing at the bottom in order to resemble dirt. I just didn't want to mess with the oreo crumbs. It really turned out great! What a cute idea!
I made a cake similar to this for my son. I used regular frosting and added green food coloring and made it look like grass then made dirt roads on the top of the cake with crushed oreo's.
My 3-yr old nephew loved this cake. I used chocolate frosting so that the whole thing looked like dirt. The grownups enjoyed the cake, and he enjoyed playing with the trucks.
This is one of those cakes that looks like you spent sooo much time creating it, when it only takes 20 minutes to decorate. Instead of cutting off part of the cake to make the "boulders", I separately baked a pan of brownies to make piles of "dirt" and "rocks". And I must say that eating a bite of fudge brownie with a bite of cake is so yummy!!!!!
I made this recipe for my sons second birthday party it suprised me on how simple it was to create. It was a great hit with him also. Thanks so much.
I made this cake for my sons second birthday. It was a big hit and he also loved the construction set that i put on the cake!!
I used this as a birthday cake for my father in law. It said "keep on truckin'". It was priceless and everybody thought it was so creative. I added chocolate chunks to the cake batter and to the top for more "dirt". Yum!
my son loved this cake for his birthday
