Construction Birthday Cake + Smash Cake

Construction Cake | Lil Miss Cakes

I love making first birthday cakes. The themes always change and are always super cute! This cake was made to match the birthday invitations which featured the cute dump truck. I made the same dump truck but made it all edible! The cake needed some more detail so I added in some simple orange construction cones that I cut out freehand.

For the sides of the cake I applied a black and yellow stripe pattern to look like construction caution tape. I love the graphic look this gave the cake! I added the birthday message “Happy Birthday Hayden” in a nice large clean font.

Orange Contruction Cone Smash Cake | Lil Miss Cakes

Now this is definitely the best part of the whole order! Hayden’s parents wanted a small cute smash cake for the party. I surprised them with this cute orange construction cone cake. It was about 4 inches wide and 6 inches tall. It was so super cute and tiny! I wish I had some pictures of little Hayden digging into it. Happy First Birthday Hayden!
