We were asked to make a cake for a vendor's grandson and we were given free reign on the design. I love that, but sometimes it stresses me out!
Anything I want!?! Oh. I have to consider how
Much the I have left in the week? Well that happens with lots things doesn't it!
The final cake only had one tier that was all fondant and that was the tire. The tan tiers are all buttercream and the "dirt" is graham cracker crumbs. We striped the bag for the flames and used a leaf tip. We cheated and used a chocolate mold for the truck and card stock for the flags. We used part of our cake scraps (the hump we cut off to level the layer) to make a hill for the truck. I like the way it came out and am glad it didn't get too busy like a lot of cakes. I think Landon loved it too!
I hope that 2015 brings us all much success and plenty of cakes to decorate!
