A Point du Hoc Birthday Cake

Rascal asked for a World War II / D-Day / Military themed birthday cake this year.  Since he wanted the final cake to be a surprise, I did some searching through various cakes online and ended up using this Army Camo Cake (link broken) for inspiration.   I baked the cakes this morning and then assembled and decorated it this evening while the boys were at Hockey practice, saving the finishing touches for Captain to add, depicting the D-Day invasion at Point du Hoc.

He placed their World War II German soldiers on the clifftop... 

... with the American 2nd Ranger battalion assaulting the German stronghold.  

 I think the birthday boy is going to love it when he wakes up in the morning! 

Happy 10th Birthday Rascal! 


  1. Fun! Happy birthday Rascal, have a GREAT day!

  2. Your cake turned out incredible! Beautiful job!!

  3. Happy Birthday Rascal, God bless you!
    That cake is amazing, great job!!!

    How in the world did you do the hill/road?
    Have a great day!

    1. Thanks, Jamie! I was really happy with how it turned out. The hill is a small oval cake, cutting about a third of it off at a slant, frozen, and then slightly carved to the side of the two small round cakes. It was actually really easy to make.

  4. Fun cake. Happy birthday to Rascal. Love that his brother helped make it.

  5. Fantastic cake! Happy birthday! +JMJ+

  6. Wow! Are you planning on posting a tutorial on this cake? My son has a birthday next month and he would love a cake like that! Happy Birthday to Rascal.

  7. That is a Great birthday cake! Happy 10th Birthday.

  8. happy birthday! what a magnificent cake!!! i'm sooo glad my nephew can't see it, huh! :)

  9. Making grenade sweets is just above and beyond, Jessica. And with a newborn in the house? Well done, Mama.

  10. My son just saw this over my shoulder and said, "WHOOOOOAAA, that cake is AWESOME!" Unfortunately, this mama is in no way, shape, or form talented enough to pull that off! It looks wonderful!

  11. Amazing! That would be my son's dream cake!! He's turning 6 but loves anything to do with war/battles etc!
