Firetruck Cake

This firetruck cake was made for the sweet son of my beautiful friend for his 3rd birthday.  It was all fun and no pressure.  As soon as I knew the theme for his birthday party, I started sketching.  Nick gets half-credit for this cake–his ideas and decoration sculpting skills were amazing and we had the best time designing and hand making all the details!  This is definitely the most fun that Ethan has had watching me make a cake.  He was soo sad to watch the birthday boy chomp into the firetruck that he had been looking at and talking about all day!  The cake is two-tiered and each tier is 3 layers of alternating white and chocolate cake with lemon buttercream filling.  It was such a great time watching all the excitement from the kiddos when it was cake time!

I loved seeing the sketch and the finished cake side by side.

I was glad to be a guest at the party.  Not only because it was fun, but I also got to see how well the cake held together and make mental notes (need more filling between the layers!) for the next cake.  Here’s shots of the cake-cutting and the birthday boy smiling big with his cake. (Can you guess his name?!)

Happy Birthday Sam!!
