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.
