transportation cake

This adorable cake was for my cute nephew who has a love for motorcycles and helicopters.

I know I cheated by buying a heli & motorcycle (& trees). But I did not want to do fondant & the track looks awesome so it makes up for it. I was somewhat limited on time.

The straw bales are shredded wheat + melted peanut butter chips, shaped into logs then cut once they set. These were quite the hit, everyone ate them up quickly! The rocks are a cereal (think Kix, but organic) and melted chocolate dyed black. They may resemble cannonnballs but hey, I worked with what I had.

My dirt track is crushed Newman-Os and melted chocolate.
I piped the grass using Wilton tip 233. See:
