construction cake

I had a cake order this weekend for a little guy who loves construction - especially construction cones!  His mom provided me with his favorite construction toy trucks and I included them in the design.  I "excavated" out some of the cake and made a mound with it along with a little flag.  I added a fondant road, some candy rocks and there you have it - an edible construction site!



A little sidebar I have to share... I still get nervous every time I deliver a cake.  While driving, all I can think about is "I hope they like it, I hope they like it, etc."  I always hope I have exceeded the clients expectations.  Well, this delivery was awesome.  Not only did they like it, but the mom even started crying!  So sweet!  She made me as happy as I made her.  Thanks Kary!

Love it! I was on the other end when we picked up the construction cake designed for my friend, I was thinking "I hope she like it..." Did you see it?
