Jack’s Skid Steer Loader Birthday Cake…

three 9 x 13 vanilla cakes I baked three 9 x 13 cakes to use as my “canvas”.

fondant accessories for cake In order to make the bucket of the skid steer loader I cut out these pieces of fondant the night before…the reason you need to cut them out the night before is to allow them time to harden. I cut out templates of cardboard and then traced them over sheets of rolled fondant.
