Okay, when we were asked to design a cartoon-like construction themed cake keeping budget in mind, this is what our team came up with. Feeding up to 35-45 people, this fondant iced cake is decorated with 2D cutout construction trucks, signs and traffic cones. We used traffic signs to incorporate the birthday boy’s name. This cake was filled with 4 layers of vanilla cake, 2 layers of Bavarian cream and 1 layer of chocolate mousse. When looking to design your cake give us a call or email us, and remember to visit our website at www.alittlecake.com to get started with your ideas!
For a fun nontraditional wedding cake or really cool birthday cake what better way to celebrate than with a Funfetti Cake! It’s made up of Funfetti Cake (moist vanilla cake with rainbow sprinkles baked inside) bavarian cream iced in buttercream and topped with a ton of rainbow sprinkles. We can also recommend some other fillings such as chocolate mousse, cannoli cream, cookies and cream and crumbled chocolate chip cookies in our bavarian cream, just to name a few. For ideas on how to decorate this fun cake we can add a cascade of buttercream or sugar flowers, or maybe for a birthday or anniversary add a number cake topper. On this design we added a few simple fondant bows.
