Jeep Birthday Cake with hidden geocache.

This Jeep cake was for one of my husbands friends. He lives in Canberra, so the cake was made in Melbourne and my husband took it with him on the plane to the party.

 My husband helped me design a special board for the cake to sit on so it would be stable enough for the flight. We also had to take into consideration that the cake would be hand luggage, so it either had to fit under the seat or in the overhead locker.

 The plan was to have the Jeep cake driving onto a log. So on one side the wheel was resting on the log and other other side looked as if it had driven over it.
 Hidden in the log was a tiny little geocache container, which was signed by all his friends.

Geocaching is a type of treasure hunt. The aim is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches. The geocaches are listed online and you find them using a GPS or smart phone. Sometimes they have a tiny toy in them, which you can swap, but they always have a little log for you to write in. It's a great way to get out and explore and have some fun. They hidden all over the place.

Anyway, as you can see from the photos, the cake made it to Canberra in perfect condition and was a bit hit! The guys spent the rest of the day 4 wheel driving and looking for some more geocaches.

Have you tried geocaching?
