My son will be 4. His dad is a lineman. He is sooo into powerlines, big trucks, poles etc. I'm totally blank on this one. Any ideas?

How about an fbct?

My dh is a powerlineman. I even have a pic you might like to do an fbct with.

Thanks for the help. I'm sorry though what is a fbct? I'm still new.

how about using pretzel rods and attatching black licorice rope with some royal icing and make power lines on the cake??? Maybe get a toy cherry picker truck?? That would be so cute. My Father in law is a lineman.....he actually got electrocuted once, lost his arm......but he still does it......crazy!!

I'm also looking for ideas on a power line cake. I would like to place a transmission mast on a cake - any ideas how to build the mast?

I did my construction cake using sugarpaste lego pieces. I made the moulds but you can buy them on e-bay. I didnt have a clue what I was doing as it was my first cake. I made the men too and glued them together with edible glue. I bought a lego excavator as I'm just not that good. It looked excellent and everyone loved it (even though it was extremely flawed!). I continued the theme with red warning signs with age in center. You could make the trees in sugarpaste? Power lines with painted spagetti or just cheat and use florist wires?
