I made this skateboard cake for my boyfriend’s son for his 8th birthday. I used regular box cake mix in and I used regular vanilla icing colored with food coloring.
I baked a 9 x 13 cake and cut it to the shape I needed. I did a base layer of white then covered that with yellow icing. I used a toothpick to mark the flames and the colored the flames with orange icing and outlined the flames in black gel icing. I then put 2 squares of leftover cake on each end for the trucks and put the dowel rods in and covered with red icing.
I painted 2 dowel rods silver and let them dry. I then placed a chocolate donut on each end for the wheels. It was worth the time and effort put into it. All together the cake took approximately 6 1/2 hours from start to finish.
Everyone at the party absolutely loved the cake!
