This was my son’s third Birthday cake which was on Good Friday. I tried to incorporate his love for spiderman into the design with the webs and the teeth to give the truck a bit of ‘personality’.
Each of the wheels was solid icing and weighed 350 g, I dried them for a week beforehand so they would be hard enough.
Thanks to verusca Walker for her posting of her Monster truck on Cakes decor a while ago. The image of her construction I looked at quite a few times during the construction and also my son’s monster truck toys for dimensions.
The cake was chocolate fudge with chocolate ganache.
