I was asked to make a cake for a boy who is turning 7. She said he likes trucks. Any ideas?? I was thinking maybe like a full size stand up truck?? Does anyone have a picture that I could get some inspiration?
I love the one summernoelle posted! I have different chocolate molds and stencils for trucks; that's what I'd use if I got an order for something like that. But for something more elaborate you could definitely do the 3D truck. In the 3D cakes/automobiles gallery here on CC you can get some fabulous pics of stand-up trucks, etc. Good luck!
I made a 3-D semi truck out of the long loaf pan.
Try doing a search in the galleries for truck. There's no better place than here to find ideas.
Something different I was just asked to do .... the customer brought me a large plastic dump truck they had purchased from Target. I baked the cake, frosted it, and placed it in the "back" of the truck. I then covered the cake with "dirt" also known as crushed oreos. I also placed some edible rocks in the dirt as well. Then I placed the truck on a very large board I had covered with chocolate fondant and more dirt. I used royal icing to glue down the wheels so the truck would not roll. Then I added butttercream grass on the board as well. It was a very cute cake for a boy. Unfortunately I was in a hurry and forgot to take pictures. I do have one I can get scanned later if you would like to see it!
You could use the Wilton pan that is in the shape of a truck and just decorate that unless you want it to be tall and 3-D
Here is a link to the Wilton Truck Pan:
