EASY TO MAKE - Themed birthday cake...

Have you ever had one of those moments of panic 
when you need to create a fabulous Birthday Cake,
and you have NO TIME?
Well here is a great idea for a themed cake using
(dare I admit it)
Packets of cake mix, 
the trusty home printer 
and shop bought accessories!
Step one - make the packet cake according to the instructions.
I used two packets and a large baking pan to bake it in, 
as I needed extra cake, 
and the length to place my toys on.
Prepare your themed accessories:
mine were; 
The little yellow digger...
the yellow truck...
and construction printables found free on the internet
 that were printed and cut out.
(Don't stress about the printer ink running into the cake icing,
as the printables were on thick grade card, 
and the cake was put together, delivered, 
printables removed before cake cutting, and eaten within a few hours,
so there was no leaching of ink.)
This is how I cut the cake before icing...
Icing done.
Printables placed,
Some printables were taped on skewers for height...
Toys on...
Candles placed...
The three year old Birthday boy loved his cake!
Everyone raved about the 'Construction Cake'!
Just think about what you could create for future birthdays...
You could make a farm animal cake,
sea themed...
Train...
Mermaid...
Frozen or other movie themes...
Rainforest...
Fishing...
Shell...
Beach...
Barbie...
My little pony...
Pokemon...
Dollshouse...
The possibilities are simply endless!!!!
SIMPLE - oh how I LOVE that word...
And this EASY TO MAKE birthday cake was exactly that!!
