2 box cakes (1st layer - chocolate;2nd layer-white)buttercream frosting in between layers and on top of cake. "road" is made of canned chocolate frosting tinted with black food coloring; fence= pretzels and thread;toy construction equipment;writing and detail done with buttercream frosting
use 16" square pan (or any size you want) bake 2 layers - cool and frost bottom layer with buttercream frosting - add 2nd layer and frost all sides with the white buttercream. next: measure diagonally across the cake to mark where the "road" will be. Frost this area with canned chocolate frosting tinted with black food coloring. next: tint buttercream to the desired shade of green for the grass areas on either side of the road and frost.
next: do whatever writing you want ex> "Thank you" "Happy Birthday", etc. next: tint buttercream to a bright yellow for the road markings .... stripe each side of the road and do dashes in the middle of the road. next: place pretzels along each side of the road ( and wind black thread around pretzel before you insert it into the cake) tip: for the first "post", tie the thread on to the pretzel, then wrap the other pretzels to secure the thread,
tying the last pretzel with the thread. next; place the equipment on the cake.
