Have a birthday coming up for a truck lover? Your little will love this DIY Monster Truck Cake and I promise you’ll appreciate how simple it is to make!
I don’t remember a ton about my early birthdays – I know one was at a McDonald’s play place and another was canceled due to a blizzard (that was the year I got my birthday present – a hedgehog! – early because my parents felt bad) but I do remember my brother’s birthdays. I’m not sure if it’s because he was a year younger than me or because he was the baby, but I remember aspects of his early birthdays better than my own. One of the most memorable things were the simple but adorable cakes my mom made him.
Most were from those Betty Crocker mini magazines at the checkout aisles and I’m sure none of them turned out as nicely as the photo or as quickly as it was advertised, but I remember them being amazing. I’m sure half of the awe was that my mom would put so much effort into it, something that would be easily smacked together using pre-made ingredients or bought at the grocery store. (side note – I should say, I’ sure that my mom either also made me cakes or just bought them because I was incredibly sassy and specific about things like that and it probably would have been easier to just order the randomly intricate and specific cake I desired. )
