I am wondering if anyone would be willing to send me the instructions/pattern for the 3D Dump Truck Cake that is found in the Wilton Celebrate With Fondant book. Many people in the How To forum say that they used these instructions when constructing their dump truck cakes. I need to make a 3D dump truck next month and would greatly appreciate it if someone could send me this info.

Thanks in advance,

I am glad that "cheatize" sent them to you. I didn't think that the directions were that great or that helpful. None of them ever are. Hope your cake turns out well - I hope you post a pic as I am very interested in seeing the finished cake.

Thank you so, so much, cheatize!! That will be so helpful!

Peridot--I think what will be most helpful is seeing how they put the cake pieces together before they're frosted. I don't make many 3D cakes, and I am a real candidate for a 3D Cake for Dummies guide!!! icon_lol.gif

I will definitely post the photo next month after I make it!!

Thanks again! thumbs_up.gif

Could I get the photos and instructions too please? My cousin asked me to make a 3-D truck cake for his son's 2nd birthday. I've never made a 3-D cake before, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that'll it'll be doable. Thank you in advance!

I made this cake! Yeah, my first 3-D. Thanks, Michele, for the info. I had quite a few head scratching moments while making it, since the instructions are vague, and I had to make it bigger to serve 50. It didn't come out perfect, but I had alot of fun making it. icon_lol.gif

I don't know if I can attach a photo here, but I did upload it on my account if anyone is interested.

Your cake looks fantastic, cpwong00!! Love the candy in the back! I never ended up making this cake because the customer opted for a 2D dump truck instead (photo is in my gallery). I am hoping to try it sometime soon, though. You had mentioned that the directions were vague--any tips you can give on what you did when the directions got confusing?

Thanks for posting your photo thumbs_up.gif !

Thanks, Michelle, for the wonderful comments! I apologize for the late reply. I haven't had a chance to get back onto this site for quite some time.

As for the vague instructions, I'm a novice cake decorator, so maybe these won't be problems you'll encounter.

The first was, I made the cake board 8"x16" (the size of the cake) except I didn't account for the shrinkage of the baked cake so the board stuck out which made attaching the tires a bit hard and resulted in 2 of them falling off during transport.
Another one was once iced, the cake started to shift as I was trying to put on the fondant, so I had to peel everything off and stablize it with dowels.
Also, I had to cut the fondant into "car parts" rather than lay an entire sheet of fondant to cover the front of the truck which is what they asked. I probably could if I doubled the fondant, but then I'd be left with a bunch of scrap red fondant.
And I had to get quite creative in making the 3-D details. There was no instructions on how to make them. I ended up playing around with a ruler.
Plus the back looked very plain (no back view from instructions), so we played around with a back bumper, and my sister made the license plate to give it some detail.

Hope the info helps. Take care and happy decorating!! icon_biggrin.gif
