Keira demanded a Paw Patrol birthday cake for her 4th birthday party.

I wanted something easy that would come out looking amazing and stumbled upon a cake idea but no tutorial anywhere.

I tweaked the idea a little, photographed my way through it and decided to share it with other parents wanting to tackle a Paw Patrol Birthday Cake for themselves.

I like to take oreos and crumble them up and then mix with the frosting for the ramp. It makes the ramp a little more moldable, if you want that!

Hi. This recipe looks fab and perfect for my not so great cake making skills! Can you tell me how far in advance this cake be made? And do you store it in the fridge to keep everything set? Thanks

You can make the cake 1-2 days in advance and cover with clingrap and put in fridge. If you use packaged frosting, you can store cake covered with aluminum foil on the counter. If you use real buttercream, you will need to store in the fridge.

I made this for my son’s birthday but used Zuma and rubble because zuma was his favorite. I put zuma on top and made the top look like water with clear gel frosting with blue dye. It turned out awesome! The kids were all wide-eyed when they saw it and couldn’t wait to try the candy rocks. So fun! Thanks for the ideas!
