A while back I made a "Monster Jam" cake for my sons birthday. Everyone loved it but the question I heard often was about how I was able to get a truck in the air. So here is my blog post on it.
You can see in the picture above that the truck in mid air is positioned on a stick. I used a chopstick for this and balanced the truck on top. There was a small hole in the bottom of the truck that was perfect for this! The struggle was how to keep the stick upright when I was using a soft cake for the base. So here is what I did:
I cut a small hole (the size of an Oreo cookie) out of the cake in the same spot that I wanted the truck.
I filled the hole with stacked Oreos (it took 2 for this cake).
I carefully pushed the stick into the Oreos. Hopefully it will not crack the cookies that much because you really need a firm base. Next, you just frost over the cookies!
