This was my first stab at a fire engine cake and had such grandiose ideas…before I started… My ideas were soon dashed when I realized how difficult it was to visualize how to cut the cakes into pieces in order to form the desired shape. I realized that if I cut it all wrong, I’d have to bake more cakes! Luckily I was able to make this out of 2 9x13in. cakes with just a little cake scraps leftover. I made the ladders with white chocolate. Overall, I was pretty happy with how it turned out given it was my first try!
Sound the alarm!
