Skateboard Birthday Cake
3D Skateboard Cake
For this skateboard cake, I baked a 2 layer 9x11 cake and a 2 layer 9"round cake. I cut the round cake in half and put on each side of the 9x11 to form the curved sides.
I then iced the whole cake in green buttercream making it smooth on the top so you couldn't tell there was 3 separate pieces.
I then tinted some fondant bright green and rolled it out 1/4" thick and placed over the whole cake. I smoothed it around the cake.
I then tinted some fondant orange and some yellow and rolled each color out. I placed the colors next to each other touching, some overlapping and rolled them together with a rolling pin to get the swirled effect of the flames. I cut the flames out with a fondant cutter.
Stick the flames all around the base of the cake with water.
I made the wheels out of fondant. The trucks are made from popsicle sticks sprayed with silver edible spray. The brackets are made from cutting 2 squares out of fondant and spraying with silver edible spray. I put those all together on the cake.
I then tinted some red and some black fondant and did the same thing to get the swirled effect and cut the letters out for the name with a fondant cutter and put them on the top!
