Skateboard Cake

Hey guys! I hope you've all been having a great week! It's certainly been another busy week here at the bakery! I finished up my cake decorating class this week at Dalton State College, and all my students did such great jobs! Most of them will be back in 2 weeks for the second course. I'm super stoked because during this break I will be taking a class of my own in Atlanta with the super talented Mike McCarey. Will any of my blog readers be there? If so, leave me a comment and let me know so we can talk!

OK, enough about me! Let's talk about this crazy skateboard cake! This week has been so crazy that I reached back into the cake archive to bring up this little beauty. The skateboard is all cake, covered in fondant and covered with edible image skateboard stickers. The trucks and wheels are all fondant. I have dowels running from wheel to wheel and one through the center to support each axle. I tried airbrushing flames on the board and they turned out pretty good, but I wasn't thoroughly happy with it. I wish the colors were more vibrant.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
