This cake was for a 13-year-old's birthday party. He is on his school's cross country team and we decided it would be neat to create a cake to mimic the team's logo, which is a sneaker with wings.

I made this ambulance cake for a 7-year-old's birthday party. His parents volunteer with the local ambulance service. This cake is based on an actual ambulance in the fleet. I took some artistic license with the scale and some of the details.

This cake was made for my church's softball team's end of season picnic. I had in mind to do a 14-inch square cake, but I don't have any 14-inch square pans. So I used 16-inch square pans instead. After baking, the tops of the cakes were already pretty flat except for a bit of rounding around the edges. So instead of using a leveler to take the tops off, I stacked the cakes and then carved off about 3/4 inch from each side.

This cake was for a 5-year-old's birthday party. I decided to have it look like it was sitting on the wheels with space beneath the body of the truck. To do this, I used foam board and cut out the shape of the truck and set the cake on the foam board. Then, beneath this board I placed four or five layers of foam board. These layers were cut in a rectangle smaller than the cake base. I taped them together and wrapped them in black construction paper.

This cake has been calling out to be made for months now. My New Year's Eve party gave me excuse enough to build it. Howard J. Lamade Stadium is where they hold the Little League World Series every year in August. I made a version of the stadium in cake.
