Construction Birthday Cake

Brother Chef had a birthday. And to celebrate, I made this festive construction birthday cake.

Mr. Chef teased me mercilessly that I made a “little boy” cake for such a big boy. But I thought it was pretty darn creative. After all, Brother Chef works for a company that sells construction materials! This was perfect. And what’s more, I had fun making it.

So how to make this fun-loving cake?

Start with a package of Oreo cookies and remove the creme filling from the cookies. Crush the Oreos in a plastic bag using a rolling pin, or by crushing them in a food processor.

Make your favorite chocolate cake and chocolate frosting and frost your cake once it’s completely cooled. I put strawberry filling in the middle of my cake, but you can also use just frosting. To keep your cake plate clean, take waxed paper or parchment paper and slide it under the edges of the cake. These will be removed when you’re done decorating.

Using a serated knife, cut out a small slice of cake, cutting about half way down, lifting, and flipping it over on top of the cake so it looks like an excavator dug a hole. Sprinkle crushed Oreos over the hole and over the mound of cake you flipped onto the cake to make it look like a pile of dirt.

Situate the excavator truck on top of the cake to make it look like it’s digging out the hole. I purchased my truck at Wal-Mart in their toy section. You can use orange fondant to shape into the size of cones or orange paper shaped into construction cones and place them around the cake.
