Monster Truck Cake

I made this monster truck cake for a friend’s little boy who was turning 4.  He loves monster trucks!  The cake was half chocolate half white with chocolate butter cream icing. As always I used an enhanced cake mix recipe. This was a 1/2 sheet cake.  I used RKT to form the hills and chocolate pudding for the mud puddles. I also took chocolate covered mini donuts and cut them in half for the tires around the edges and as the tire stacks. I molded little orange cones out of fondant to add color to the track, as well as green butter cream icing for the grass accents.  My friend added the monster trucks to the cake for the party.

This cake was so easy and fun to make!  Nothing had to be precise, which was perfect because sometimes I can beat myself up about things not being just right. Her son loved his cake.  He was one happy 4 year old boy!
