Grave Digger Monster Truck Birthday Cake
A year ago I made a Blue Thunder Monster Truck for my oldest son's Birthday. We had such a blast making it. And of course with 2 boys in the home and Monster Jam on the television several mornings a week before school, we knew we'd have more monster trucks to build.
My youngest really enjoys Grave Digger. I'm not sure if it is the truck itself that he likes or the entertainment factor we get when we watch these guys on the track. Either way, Braden wanted Grave Digger and my husband was convinced we could do a monster truck bigger and better than last time.
It was worth every second when the little man came into the room while I was finishing up and told me his cake was "AWESOME!! And better than Garrick's cake." ha ha A little sibling rivalry...
Anyway, we had fun making it. My husband did the frame work and I did the baking, carving, and decorating. I'd say we make a pretty good team.
So... here's Garrick's Blue Thunder Monster Truck Cake from last year and here is Braden's Grave Digger Monster Truck from today.
To give it a little perspective, I'm adding a shot the photographer (my Dad, and Braden's PopPop) took of Braden with his cake.
