i made one for my son a couple years ago. idr where i found the directions, but i got two cake tins that when you stack them are the shape of a foretruck. i used oreos for tired and black twizzler for the ladder on the side. it was hot out, and the cane got droopy and drippy. keep it refridgerated til serving time! good luck! oh, and have plenty of red dye for the frosting, you need alot or for some reason it looks pink!
