skate ramp cake

skate ramp cake, originally uploaded by lorilei78.

My daughter B loves skateboarding, so I made her this cake for her 10th birthday. This is 3 9X13 cakes, stacked, with the middle carved out. I used about 3 cans of store-bought icing. I got the perfect look of wood grain by coloring a bit brown and swirling white into it while frosting the ramp. I intended for the outside of the ramp to be black, but I've found it next to impossible to get it dark enough. I used a ton of black gel food coloring and got purple, which worked for her. I have an easy-going kid.:o)
