It was my elder son’s 5th birthday recently. It’s taken me a while to blog about this cake, but if you follow my posts you’ll probably already know I gave birth to our second son at around the time of my first son’s birthday and since then I’ve been a tad busy!

As I knew my sons’ birthdays would be very close together, I wanted to make a birthday cake which was simple and quick to assemble. Some internet browsing brought me to this building site / digger cake idea in the form of some photos. I did my best to copy what I saw, using my own cake recipe and various toy construction site pieces I already had.

Lots more photos of the finished product at the bottom of this post. Read on to find out how I made and decorated the cake.

As you have probably guessed, it was my son’s 3rd birthday recently. Like many little boys, he’s obsessed with anything that has wheels, so I wanted to make him a car-shaped birthday cake. And this is what I came up with. Thanks to my sister for her ideas about the easiest way to go about this and my mum for supervising the car cake decorating (she has many years of birthday cake making experience).
