A Monster Truck Jam for Adam!



A 16 inch cake for a 1 year old??? I wanted to practice making a large cake, so therefore Adam got it for his Birthday. The cake was really moist, with 38 eggs, 16 cups of sugar, 5 cups of butter, and 16 cups of flour, among other ingredients. It is an almond flavored white cake with a chocolate mousse filling. It is topped with a green buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache. The dirt is so lifelike! Everybody thought that I brought it in from the garden. It is actually crushed graham crackers and oreos. Oh, and the candy rocks are edible. The cake tasted even better than it looks! Adam sure enjoyed it.
