    There was a thread on here a few months back with Monster Truck Cakes in it, and in my attempt to one-up you guys, I'm planning on having a 3D cake of my own. However, I've ran into a problem.

    I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE!!

    I'm a big fan of alot of teams, and I like so many trucks, its really freakin' hard to decide which one to do.

    I wanna stay away from the overdone, uber popular trucks like Grave Digger, Max D, Bigfoot, etc etc. I like to root for independants, but man, there's jsut too many!

    So I need some input mayhem. If you were getting married, and your grooms cake was gonna be a monster, which one would you pick?

    Ewwww!!!! Lobster and Cake combined, where do I throw up! lol jk. I like that idea and it would be pretty cool to see it made.

    If I had to choose one it would have to be between Tail Gator and Jurassic attack just on body shape alone.

    From my experience working weddings pretty much every weekend from May through October I will say this. If you want to do more than just look at your cake avoid fondant like the plague. It's some of the nastiest stuff I've ever come in contact with. I honestly don't think it's edible at all yet it's supposed to be. I've found cake plates that got put in really obscure places that have sat for months at a time and the fondant doesn't mold, deteriorate, change colors, or anything. I can't imagine what it does to your insides.

    Sorry for that rant. I just hate that stuff with a passion.

    Dude, fondant is just marshmallows. If you can eat Rice Krispies squares, then you can eat fondant.

    Fondant isnt really just Marshmallows. I second what dustin says I worked wedding myself and people who have use it come back and say they wish they had not its just horrible stuff.

    Well, I guess I may have made an assumption about fondant in general. At the very least, the fondant that we make has marshmallows as its main ingredient.

    Yep

    I have found it to be not very good to eat. Looks good on those cake shows but not for real life. There are some places that make some very good tasting fondant, but, you are going to pay for it.
    Go with regular frosting and enjoy. No matter what truck idea you go with, as long as you like it, it is a success.

    I would consider myself an amateur baker but i like to experiment a lot and the only time fondant works ok as part of an edible cake is when its part of a pool or something thats almost totally flat on the top (cousin had a replica of his pool at home complete with pool toys for his 3rd birthday). that only worked ok because the fondant was cut into individual tiles and could be broken apart fairly easy.

    pretty much you have to sacrifice looks for taste/ability to eat. it doesnt have to look like garbage, but if you want a monsetr truck made out of cake that has a tube frame, shocks, etc you wont be able to enjoy it as much.

    Not sure if you wanted to go this route, but you could make the cake be the backdrop/course and use toys to complete the scene. very easy to do.


    or what about bigfoot 1 doing the first car crush at the pontiac silverdome?

    I want to go with a more conventional looking truck, since not all of my family is monster truck orineted, the uninitiated would probably see Crushstation and say "why is his cake a lobster on wheels?"

    Avenger sounds like a good one though. I want someone thats pretty simple since this woman is new to 3D cakes, and Avenger isn't too awful complicated.

    My fianc? and I found a woman in Ohio who makes awesome fondant or however you spell it lol. All hope isn't lost... I do agree though, most tastes like total crap.
