Kids Construction Site Birthday Cake

Construction Birthday CakeFor my friend Natalie’s son’s birthday she wanted to make his birthday cake for him, with a construction site theme. Here is our attempt. Though it should be noted – by no means do we regard ourselves as cake decorators. I like to bake and eat, but, despite my attempt at Wilton Cake Decorating 1 and 2, nothing sank in. 

Natalie baked two 9×13 cakes, one vanilla and one chocolate. We made my moms famous vanilla icing, but then mixed in Oreo crumbs to make it cookies and cream icing (so delicious!) for the filing between the two layers. We iced the whole cake with a layer of white vanilla icing, then added colouring to create the icing for decorating. Half of the cake was covered with Oreo crumbs to look like dirt, and then a few trucks were placed on and around the cake, and a house built out of candy Legos. Tada!
