Hello everybody,
I have to make a 3D dump truck cake for a liitle boy who's turning 2. I don't have much experience in doing 3d cakes so any help would be really appreciated!
Can anybody guide me to the tutorial or instructions on how to make a 3d dump truck!??

Also, how much should I charge?

Thanks so much in advance.

I made one using a half sheet cake.

I made a stand out of styrofoam that I covered in white foil. I put my board on that so it would seem like the wheels were holding up the truck.

I cut the half sheet into3 six in wid strips. I stacked 2 of them on top of each other.

The third I cut one end off at a slant. I stacked the large piece on top of the other 2 and put the cut off end on top of that on the end, to make the cab. I covered the whole thing in fondant and made fondant wheels that I hooked up with toothpicks. The dirt was oreo cookies and melted chocolate.
