Somehow its harder to impress the kids each year for their birthday cakes. This year its the Grave Digger Monster Truck, and can't he just be suspended in mid air jumping over cars or something? I worked all evening hand painting the detail on the truck and all the accolades from my son were '...oh...yeah, good job Mom...'. He quickly learned how well that cut it for the effort put into his creations. :)
The Monster Truck is made from rice crispy treats and modeling chocolate and fondant, then hand painted with edible coloring. The cupcakes are almond poppyseed with either raspberry or lemon filling, and swiss meringue buttercream frosting.
