Gavin’s Skateboard Cake

It wasn’t an actual skateboard, nor was it “cake.”

But anyway.

Gavin, the skater, just turned 9.  He wanted something made with Rice Krispie Treats.  So we took a really easy, tasty route.

I used about 48 pre-made Rice Krispie Treats.  Dave picked up a real skateboard with metal trucks at Target to use as a stand.  I wrapped it with platic wrap and sort of smooshed the treats up together on the board, trimming the ends to follow the shape of the board.

Then I smoothed Wilton’s melting candy over the whole thing.  While it cooled, I melted some of the red and piped/traced Gavin’s name over a template I had made, which I covered with wax paper.  I popped his name in the fridge to cool.  In retrospect, perhaps I should have used a mini spatula to smooth it out, but it is a casual cake.

Just before the chocolate covering was totally set, I placed Gav’s name on the board and Dave piped sort of a sunburst design on it.  Peeled the letters off the wax paper and placed them on the chocolate-candy-coated board.  20 minutes in the fridge and voila!

Gavin told me he ate A LOT of Rice Krispie Treats.  A lot.

We had a lovely time at the park, Gavin and his little sister and all the rest of us!
