Fire Truck Cake and Max and Ruby

 I had the opportunity to make another firetruck this week. And this one was a monster. It was huge. She wanted it to serve around 80 or so...most of those being kids. When I cut out the cake board it looked like just the right size, but by the time I carved the cake and covered it in icing and fondant, it was massive. I thought it looked great though.

 The name was the mom's idea and I loved it. And...I tried to be creative and come up with some great angle for the picture.....but you can tell my creativity stops at cake decorating.
 Max and Ruby.....Ruby and Max! So....I realize this is complete picture overload, but I took like one hundred pictures of this adorable cake so I needed to show them to somebody! You are that lucky person!
 Every thing is 100% edible!

 Love this stye tree. Of course I am not the first to do it, but if something works, why change it?

 Just look at those perfectly round shrubs. I wish I could get my shrubs in front of my house to look that good. Oh if only everything in life could be made out of fondant!

Well that's all for this week. It was a light week. Hope you enjoyed. See you next time!


  1. Oh my goodness I just have to tell you how much I love your Max & Ruby cake! It is amazing, and after I found it on Pinterest, I was inspired to make my own! My 4 yr old daughter Loved it today, so thank you. I love the happy colors, the details but also the simplicity. I tried to recreate it with marshmallow fondant. What kind did you use? And how did you get the front of the house to be sturdy enough to hold up the roof? I just had a flat roof that wrapped over the top edge.

  2. Hi Heather,
    I am so happy you liked my Max and Ruby cake! I too use marshmallow fondant. I cut the house out and left it to sit out and get firm for a little while before I put it on the cake. I did the same for the little roof parts. I would love to see pictures of how yours turned out. You can email me anytime at
