Actually, I am a Wilton instructor, and a student asked (BEGINNER!), so simple is a key....

 

Gotta love them--- one class and they are ready to do a cake.... Oh, and not just the stars over the character cake either....lol.

 

Help? Thoughts?


This is a link to a monster truck cake made for my nephew.  The cake in the photograph is a 12" square chocolate, with the "cake dome scraps" used to create the "jumps".   Your beginning student could make any shape or size of cake, and make the "jumps" out of cupcakes or scraps.    My nephew was 10 at the time the cake was made, and the "Monster Truck Mud Jam with cars getting crushed" was all his idea.  Kids LOVE toys on their cakes!    I made the black and white signs by printing, taping to cardstock, then toothpicks, then using a black Sharpie to make the black and white squares.

(For the parking lot, I just used an oversize cardboard cake board cut out of clean cardboard.  The birthday boy  let each of his party guests pick a car to keep as a party favor.)

Thanks Apti!!!! That's the idea..... something "boy" that is technically easy.Perfect! I think I can get my student to recreate that with her limited skills and still be super cute and fun for the kiddos....thumbs_up.gif

You and your student are most welcome! 

 

I made that cake  7 months after my first Wilton course at Michael's.  (I took all 4 WM courses and loved them.)  The birthday boy (my nephew) was trying his darnedest to stump me with a very detailed cake design request.

 

When I brought out the cake at the park, I told him, "HA! I laugh at your detailed cake request!"
