Step by Step Instructions

Step One: Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Monster Cake Pans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Grease the 3D cake pan and 13 x 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray.

Step Two: Prepare the Cake Mix

In a large mixing bowl, combine one box of the cake mix, three eggs, vegetable oil, and water. Using an electric mixer, beat the cake mix at medium speed for two minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed with a rubber spatula to ensure the cake mixture fully combines.

In a separate bowl, prepare the other box of cake mix just the same as you did the first one. If desired, you may make one white cake and one chocolate cake, or any flavor combination that you would like.

Step Three: Bake the Cakes

Pour one bowl of cake batter into the 3D monster cake pan and pour the other bowl into the 13 x 9-inch cake pan. Bake the 13 x  9-inch cake pan for 29-34 minutes and the 3D monster cake for 40-45 minutes. Allow both the cakes to cool on a wire rack.

Step Four: Assemble the Cakes

Once cool, frost the 13 x 9-inch cake with chocolate frosting. Using an offset spatula, create swirls to give the frosting an appearance of mud. Carefully place the truck on top of the frosted cake.

Use some frosting to attach the wafers to the bumper of the car and then mini marshmallows for lights. You can also use melting chocolate in place of frosting.

Step Five: Decorate the Truck

Color the vanilla frosting with your choice of food coloring. Use the piping bag with a piping tip, decorate the remainder of the car. Frost the wafer cookies and mini marshmallows with chocolate frosting or your choice of color.

On the sheet cake, sprinkle brown sugar on the chocolate to replicate dirt. Cut your lollipop sticks in half and use them to attach the miniature chocolate donuts to the car for wheels. If desired, pipe ‘happy birthday’ on the cake and add any additional decorations you would like.

Tips and Tricks

Store this monster car cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days. In addition, this cake will also store well in the fridge for a week.

This cake can also be frozen as well, whether frosted or unfrosted. For best results, freeze the monster truck and sheet cake separately, as this will make it much easier to store. If frosted, let the cake sit in the freezer for one hour uncovered to let the frosting set before wrapping.

Wrap the cakes in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of aluminum foil and then carefully place them in your freezer. The cakes will last for around six months in your freezer.

Once you are ready to serve, allow them to thaw either in the fridge overnight or at room temperature on the counter for at least two hours. Once thaw, assemble the cakes, and if you have not already yet, decorate them.

Feel free to use any kind of cake mix flavor you would like. Just be sure to follow the decorations on the back of the box for the best results. If desired, you can even make one chocolate mix and one vanilla mix and then swirl them together to make marble.
