I said that I was going to do food posts on Mondays, but I can't wait.
Tuesday, my nephew, Declan, had his 4th birthday! So, naturally, I baked him a dump truck cake.
(I think Jackson had a similar cake at his birthday party last summer, but I can't remember.)
I made a 4 layer chocolate cake (because he's 4), filled it with chocolate filling,
and covered it with whipped cream and smashed up Oreos.
Finally, I topped it off with a bulldozer, some construction cones and a dump truck.
My favorite thing about the cake, aside from photographing it like it was a Martin and Munoz snowglobe,
and watching Declan add and move toys around, was that it was super easy. The messier it looked the better! (Which was good because I'd snowshoed 9 miles earlier that day and was WAY too exhausted to do anything fancy.)
Wait, I take that back. My absolute favorite thing about the cake was that Declan loved it!
Happy Birthday little guy!
