Monster Jam Birthday Cake




My son absolutely loves Monster Trucks. His favorite is Blue Thunder and for his Birthday, he asked for a monster truck cake. His cousin TJ is celebrating his Birthday in February also (the boys are 6 days apart), so this is for both of them.

It was most definitely a challenge. Matt was an indispensable part of this project. He put his carpentry skills to work and built an incredible frame for me to work with. He also helped carve the shape of the truck. He wanted to have a hand in our son's cake and he did a fantastic job!!! I love you baby!

Happy Birthday Garrick & TJ!!!

Thanks so much for your kind words! The carved cakes require a bit of work and planning ahead. Especially if a frame is needed. So you want to give at least 3-4 weeks notice.
