Coolest Skatepark Birthday Cake

This is a Skatepark birthday cake that my mom and I made for my brother’s 13th birthday. It is a chocolate devil’s food cake, covered in gray fondant and buttercream icing.

He has various ramps etc., so we tried to simulate those. I used two 12×18 cakes, made my own marshmallow fondant and a crusting butter cream icing. The floor for the half pipe is white fondant brushed with watered down ivory food coloring gel. The wall is made from a piece of cardboard covered in a thin layer of butter cream to use as the glue to hold the gray fondant on.

I printed a graffiti font from the internet, traced around it on white fondant and hand painted them with gel coloring. The only things not edible on the actual cake are the skateboards.

This cake was not difficult to do, however I wouldn’t use a devil’s food cake again because it seemed to be quite fragile when I was putting the crumb coat on, which in effect made my fondant edges not quite as sharp as I like.
