Coolest Skateboard Cake

My son loves skateboarding so for his birthday I made this cake with one 9″ round cut in half and one 9×13 with the sides shaved off to give it some shape. Cool the cake in the freezer it will ice better.

I covered it with white icing then drew in my flames with a tooth pick. I started with yellow and used round tip #3 for the more detailed spots and #5 for the larger areas. Using a spreading knife to smooth it out. Next, I used red with tip #3 to fill the rest. I used the spreader to drag the red into the yellow to blend the colors. The outline is done in black with round tip #2. For the border I used leaf tip #67 and went around with red then switched to yellow and filled in.

The wheels are chocolate donuts with Cocoa Krispies Cereal Straws. I took off about an inch of the straws before sticking them in the donuts then set them on top.

My son told me “I rock” so I was proud.

  8. Thanks for sharing your cake with everyone, especially the ones who had no idea how to make one. When I googled skateboard cakes, yours was one that showed up and I thought it was great! My son is turning 7 and is complete a skateboarding fool. Anyways thanks again for sharing and walking me through it. I know my son will love it.

  9. I have a silly question! But here it is should you use 1 cake mix and separate it between the round & rectangle or 2 whole cake mixes and bake 2 separate cakes entirely then put the together??
    I know it sounds goof, but I have seen a few different recipes and directions for a cake like this and none of them say!

  10. For sharing your great Skateboard Cake idea with everyone. Once I read your instructions, I thought – I can make this. My co-workers son’s 12th birthday is next weekend and he will love it more than I one I tried to make last year. Wish me luck with the paint job.

  11. Every year I make my three children specialized birthday cakes. This year my 12 year old requested a skateboard cake. I figure this is probably easier than the baseball diamond cake I made for him last year! Thanks for sharing your idea! The design is fabulous!

  12. Thanks so much for this awesome cake idea- I made it for my son’s 10th birthday party (at the SkatePark) and he LOVED it!! I got so many compliments and it was extra special because the kids all helped ice and decorate it!
    You made me look like a pro:)

  13. I had no idea that there were comments on this cake. I posted the pic and then forgot all about it till now…Thank you all so much for the compliments! I’m so glad I was able to inspire you all! To answer the one question asked about how many cake mixes…it was two. There was cake mix left over. I made cupcakes with it. :)

  14. My youngest son it 10 today! Thank you for this awesome cake idea!! Great job!! Did everything the same except I did a “Mine Craft” design rather than the flames. LOVED LOVED LOVED! :)
