I'm going to preface this post by saying that I'm definitely not the "Pinterest mom" who is skilled at all things DIY and an expert at whipping up perfectly themed baked goods and birthday cakes. My cakes are always a little uneven and the frosting might not be totally smooth but are they made with love? 1000%! I honestly had zero plans to post the truck cake I made for Noah's 2nd birthday but after getting so many messages about it via Instagram, I figured I'd share a few tips and tricks and product links for all the other amateur baking moms like me who are just trying to make their kids' birthday cake extra special for them! Since Noah is truck-obsessed, we went all in on the truck decorations, but you can buy whatever number you need and then pick your kid's favorite thing or character and make that the theme of your cake!
Let's start with what you'll need to make your number cake:

The Frosting - Tips & Tricks
I hope those tips were helpful for you baking mamas out there! Tag me in your cute birthday cakes at @weeknightbite so I can check them out!
