Instructions on Building a Simple Construction Birthday Cake

Items Needed:

  • Large Square Cake Pan
  • Small Round Cake Pan
  • Large Square Cake Tray
  • 3 Boxes of Yellow Cake Mix
  • Yellow Cake Icing
  • Yellow Fondant
  • Black Fondant
  • Tractor/Bulldozer Cake Toppers
  • Construction Cone Toys

Step 1: First, prepare the two cake pans for the batter and baking process.

Step 2: Next, transform the cake mix into batter and pour the batter into each cake pan.

Step 3: Bake each cake, and allow each to completely cool after cooking.

Step 4: As the cakes are cooling, lay out the large square cake tray. Then, roll out the yellow fondant and lay a piece over the entire cake tray.

Step 5: Next, place the square cake on the cake pan and cover with a large piece of black fondant.

Step 6: Now, use the yellow icing to ice the round cake and put it on top of the square cake, towards one of the corners.

Step 7: Roll out the black and yellow fondant. Cut out strips of the same length and width and place them side by side. Then, roll out the yellow and black strips so that they mesh neatly together. Once this is done, lay this piece of fondant over the top round cake.

Step 8: Next, place the tractor/bulldozer and construction cones in the areas that you deem fit on the cake. The top round cake should have the main or largest topper, while the bottom cake has the smaller toppers.

Now that you have a few ideas on how to create a construction birthday cake, it is time to pull out your supplies and gather all of the goods that you need and start creating your dessert.
