Monster Truck Birthday Cake

I recently created this cake for a little boy who was turning six years old. It was my first time working with gum paste - not sure how I like that yet. It tastes gross, but it is good for modeling! I actually think Joseph had more fun modeling and making the trucks than I did, so I let him do his thing.

We created the Ninja Turtles truck as well as the front portion of the Taz and Scooby Doo trucks. (I ran out of white gum paste, so that is why Taz has no teeth! :) The inside is Devils Food cake and the outside is frosted with vanilla buttercream frosting. You may not be able to see it here, but I also sprinkled some toffee bits in the brown frosting so it resembled actual dirt.

I really hope the birthday boy liked his cake!
