A structurally challenging cake made for my friends who own Mack Trucks in Nanaimo - for their 10th Anniversary "Bull Dog Days" celebration. I had a great time making this and it was the first time I had to built a wooden support structure to hold and raise my cake!
The length of the trailer and cab combined was 22" long. Height, including support dowels/axles was approx. 8". It took 5 large cakes to make and weighed 21.5 lbs!
I've included some photos of the cake as it went along...

Tires are cookies, covered in black fondant. Hand painted silver "hub caps". See the little "chrome" bull dog mounted on the hood!? :-)
