The short answer is with a bit of patience and a lot of icing sugar.
Let’s start at the base. My advice would be to purchase an actual mini wagon rather than making it out of icing sugar, which means you can wheel it in and when your delicious cake has been demolished, you’ve got a permanent reminder of your amazing cake.
With a Radio Flyer Wagon Cake, you’re looking at a basic smash cake. That means you need a tasty cake, but nothing too fancy, so you can forget about lots of layers inside the cake. You want a basic sponge cake but with plenty icing to get that perfect picture for the family album, with your child’s face covered in cakey goodness.
Basic Sponge Recipe
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup flour
Juice and rind of 1/2 lemon
Beat the eggs until they are thick and lemon coloured. Add the sugar gradually and continue to beat. Sift the flour several times and fold into the mixture. When the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add the grated rind and juice of the lemon and pour into a sponge cake pan. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven until a toothpick inserted in centre of cake comes out clean.
For the lettering use gum paste as it dries more rigid than fondant. I’d recommend buying some rather than making from scratch as the most important ingredient (gum tragacanth) and be hard to find.
For the rest of the cake use buttercream icing, a simple yet tasty covering.
140g/5oz butter, softened
280g/10oz icing sugar
1-2 tbsp milk
Food colouring
Beat the butter in a large bowl until soft. Add half of the icing sugar and beat until smooth.
Add the remaining icing sugar and one tablespoon of the milk and beat the mixture until creamy and smooth. Beat in the milk, if necessary, to loosen the mixture.
Stir in the food colouring until well combined.
Make sure you keep your toddler away from the sofa; the red dye used in the buttercream icing can stain, so wet wipes at the ready!

Radio Flyer Wagon cake is very easy to make at home. You just have to package baby goodies that you want to be included in it. You can pack diapers, clothes, soft toys etc in it. Here is a link to a website from where you can get ideas and pictures of Radio Flyer Wagon cakes
