Rated 3 out of 5 by Cowdy75 from Very good, not easy for a beginner I made this cake for my 3yo son. He loves rubbish trucks so I made it with a few variations in design and colour. I have never decorated a cake with this method before so was nervous about it but followed the instructions and it turned out well given my level of experience. Everyone loved this cake when I marched it out. I personally found the Number 1 tip to be too fine, I struggled to get the lines straight so instead used the number 3 and that was fine. If I were to make another cake like this again I would be tempted to cover the entire thing in a very thin layer of white icing and then freeze it for half an hour before beginning the actual design as I believe that would make the process so much easier. For a beginner I would class this as an 'intermediate' level design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shelleythepoet from I made the Dump Truck Cake for our grandson's 4th birthday and he LOVED it! The colors are so bright and attractive that all the other children and adults at the party thought that the cake was very attractive as well. I mixed all the colors before I began to decorate and made sure I had more than enough icing colored so I would not "run out" of a certain color and have to try to match a color. I also baked the cake the night before so the cake would be completely cool and I could decorate the cake the next morning and feel well rested. Instead of making the bed of the dump truck all yellow, I chose to make the 3 insets red. This made a beautiful contrast. Other than that one change, I followed the color directions given on the direction page. I hope all of the other children and grandchildren enjoy this cake as much as our grandson did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rczach from The only hard part of the cake was getting the red to turn to a red color.I had to call customer service to find out how to get the red color.I did let the color set after i mixed the 2 different reds together and let it sit for almost half a day.I should have made the frosting the day before.The window that had red outline and white window did give me a little trouble.Everyone loved the cake and I was very proud on how well it turned out.Thank You for teaching me how to decorate cakes.
