Paw Patrol Construction Cake,  an Easy DIY birthday Cake Idea for fans of the Paw Patrol and Rubble, Includes a video tutorial


  • 3 x 370g packs Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 250g Butter
  • 3 Cups Icing Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup cocoa
  • 4-6 Tbsp milk
  • 1 bag chocolate covered honeycomb, or approx 3 crunchie bars
  • 6 packs Kit Kats
  • 1 pack dark chocolate Tim Tam biscuits
  • Rubble toy


  1. For this cake you will need to bake 1 x 20 cm cake and 1 x 24cm cake using the Chocolate Cake Mixes. I prepared all the mixture together and divided it between the 2 cake tins, Please follow the packet instructions for baking times and then allow to cool thoroughly
  2. Prepare the chocolate buttercream Start with softened butter (not melted, but soft). Use an electric beater or cake mixer to beat the butter until it is as white as possible. Then add the cocoa and 1/3 of the icing sugar and beat, add 1/3 of the milk, alternate adding the icing sugar and milk until it has all been added
  3. Take a cake board or large plate, place a blob of buttercream in the centre. Place the larger cake on top.
  4. Ice the top of this cake with chocolate buttercream
  5. Place the second smaller cake on top, you want it to not be in the centre but up against one edge of the larger cake
  6. Ice the entire cake with chocolate buttercream, this does not need to be perfect, it is a construction site remember
  7. Take the honeycomb and roughly crush it with a rolling pin
  8. Place the Rubble toy or construction vehicle on the very top of the cake, add the crushed honeycomb so that it looks like rocks tumbling down the side of the cakes
  9. Use the Kit Kats to create a fence around the bottom of the large cake
  10. I added a ribbon around the fence, this is not necessary
  11. Use a food processor to crumb the TimTam chocolate biscuits
  12. Apply a rough layer of buttercream to the cake board, sprinkle the cookie crumb on top.. Voila- edible dirt!
