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.
