Preston's Monster Truck Cake!

Some of you know that I love to bake, and I took a cake decorating class at Micheal's last summer. I have made a handful of cakes, but this was my first pieced together cake. It was much harder to do than I thought it was going to be! I guess I just thought I knew what I was doing and just could free hand everything without a guide.

After looking on the internet at some pictures of Monster Truck shows I had a better idea of what I need to do. I had to make a few changed to my original idea, but the cake turned out great, and tasted great!

One of my favorite memories as a child is cooking and baking with my Grandma Ennis. She would always let me lick the beaters, and every time I bake I always let the boys get the beaters. I hope that they will have great memories of cooking with me too! Love you Grandma!!

Here is the finished cake! It was fun to make, and was the best tasting cake I have made yet! Jackson requested a skateboard cake for his birthday this year. It's never anything easy with them I guess!

We had the cake at our small group this Monday. Here are some pictures of Preston blowing out the candles, and singing Happy Birthday. Love you Preston! I can't believe my baby is two!


  1. So sad we missed it! You did an excellent job!!!!

  2. Way to go mom! I am only going so far to buy a cake for Savannah at Walmart. I am glad you enjoy making cakes. I know most people will be glad to enjoy eating your creations!
