Simon’s Construction Birthday Party Cake

This cake is a cake featured in the gallery section of my book, Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating. I also created some cookies to coordinate. Simon (my son), now wants this cake for his birthday. He’s never been “into” construction toys, but I guess since it has his name on, he thinks it should be the cake for his birthday! The cake board is covered with red fondant and textured with my brick texture mat. The bottom tier has wood panels created with a wood texture mat and rolled fondant. The top tier is covered with yellow fondant and has cut strips using black fondant. The hard hat, hammer and orange cone was hand molded. The nails were cut using the opening of tip #6 and grey fondant. The fondant was painted with silver luster dust. “Simon” was cut using the cricut cake.

  1. I love your attention to detail on this cake. Even the naming is top notch! I’m inspired for my husband’s next birthday! He loves a construction vehicle or anything digger/tractor/dumper related (I make him sound like a 5 year old!) The wood effect is fantastic!

    • Thank you for the kind words! You have a really nice blog! I especially enjoyed looking at your cakes. The football jerseys are adorable!
