Seth had his birthday last month. He turned 5 just in time to start kindergarten this year.
No tutorial, but you don't need one. Just bake a two layer cake...ours was chocolate from a cake mix. Once it's cooled, cut a hole out of the top, a little off center. Take the part you cut out and flip it over on the cake. Cover with chocolate frosting. (I used this recipe.) I used crushed oreos with the filling removed to put in the hole and on top of the pile to make it look more like cake crumbs. Then I stuck on the construction machines. They came in a pack of 5 for about $6 at Target.
Seth loved it, and it was the fastest themed birthday cake I've ever made. If you're not much of a cake artist, this is a good one to start with since the cake is supposed to look like it's falling apart.
(Yeah, I know he turned 5 and there are like 8 candles...someone was having too much fun putting candles in.)
And Liz, Seth's birthmom even got to come for a visit for his birthday this year.
You can kinda see the resemblance, huh?
Seth's been using the toys to dig around in the dirt outside.
Please show my sponsors some love...
