Tony Hawk Skateboard Cake

Tony Hawk Cake I finished over the weekend. Truthfully, I had no idea who Tony Hawk was until after I started to do some research for this cake.  I knew I wanted to make this cake look like a skateboard because what little boy wouldn't think a cake in the shape of a skateboard isn't cool? Added an image of one of Tony Hawk's skateboard impressions and from there everything started to just come together.

My hubby helped me out with the wheels and brackets because he is meticulous about proportions and measurements so I enlisted his help with this cake. Thanks Dan! It was definitely a team effort on this one and I'm glad you are able to share my enthusiam when it comes to cake...and pretty much everything else.

Last detail I added on this cake was the eight ball to represent the birthday boy's age.

Chocolate, yellow and white cupcakes, some with strawberry filling. A flavor that will please kids of all tastes.

Made some blue lady bugs too. Just in case the boys wanted a more boyish bug. Had a great time coming up with the various designs. Hope this special little girl enjoyed her little lady bug cupcakes. For now I can't stop dreaming of these little

  My favorite aspect of this cake are the buttons. Whoever knew buttons would look this great on a wedding cake?

  I made probably close to a hundred cakes but I've recently decided to delve into wedding cakes as a way to evolve my cake making creativity. Researching alot about weddings and cakes has been so enlightening. My husband and I never had a wedding cake so I think I'll live vicariously through my bride clients. Let's see where this journey takes me...        Bea
