For the monster truck fanatic in your life, create the perfect birthday cake that looks like Monster Jam! My brother in law put this cake together for their little boy’s 2nd birthday. My nephew even played with the trucks on the track before they cut it up. Perfect for people who dont want to fuss with smoothing frosting or creating detailed flowers. You won’t need any special cake equipment, but you do need to find the materials to help make it more realistic (the trucks and the flags, etc.).
- Heath Topping (Chopped or Found prechopped in bag)
- Party Supply accessories for flags and signs
- Mini Monster Trucks
How to make this…
- Bake the Cakes
Figure out how many people you will be serving and then choose your cake pan sizes. For this cake we made 2 large square cakes and arranged them next to one another to get a long field, and then 1 round cake which was cut in half and placed at the end to round out the field like an arena.
- Frost the Cakes
Frost with your favorite tasting frosting, chocolate works best here to give a dirt color. Top with heath topping, or some similar candy topping to get rocky terrain.
Use a the monster jam material that you have. You can find most this stuff at party supply stores. To get the trucks in great action positions, just use chop sticks or straws to lift them.
