Whew, this weekend I had a cake for a 10 year old 'skater'. He was so cool about the design, and let me have full reign as long as it had blue and X games on it somehow. I learned quite a bit on this one. One issue I had was my cake mix...too moist and soft, tasted great but doesn't make for good carving. Anyway, it took about 4 sheets of cake piled up and carved out for the 1/2 pipe. I put in a few skewers to make sure the sides didn't move too much...dirty iced in and cooled it. Then a lot of butter cream, a couple of hand painted fondant billboards with cardboard backing, some fondant rails and skull, and some spray paint graffiti later....this is how it came out.
