I made this construction cake for my two year-old’s birthday this year. Anything related to trucks, tractors, combines, mowers, or the like was free game. There is not a whole lot of creativity that goes into a cake made to look like dirt so, I was looking for something a little extra to add some fun. This was quite a hit with the family! I found the tutorial for the diagonal lines on Pinterest which led me to a very helpful tutorial that can be found here. Once I had the cake built, I covered in a chocolate butter cream icing, added some Oreos for a dirt effect, and topped off with some tractors. Needless to say, my little one loved it!
