How-To Make an ATV Birthday Cake

What You’ll Need

  • 1 - 8” Double Layer Round Cake
  • 10” Round Foil Cake Board, Silver
  • ATV DecoSet® Cake Topper
  • 6 Cups White Icing
  • 1 Cup Grass Green Icing
  • 2 Cups Royal Blue Icing
  • Golden Brown Airbrush Color
  • Harvest Brown Airbrush Color
  • Spring Green Airbrush Color
  • Grass Green Liqua-Gel Color
  • Royal Blue Liqua-Gel Color
  • Open Star Tip #32

  • 18” Disposable Pastry Bag
  • Plastic Coupler with Notch
  • Cake Decorators Plastic Icing Scraper
  • 9 ¾” Angled Spatula
  • Airbrush Compressor
  • Step 1

    Place an 8” round, double layer cake on a 10” cake board and base ice white. Texturize using a spatula or knife. Then, carve two sets of ATV tracks onto the cake using a spatula or knife. One set going from right to left and another set from top to bottom. Use the ATV cake topper to plan for how far apart the track lines should be. The tires should each rest in a track.

  • Step 2

    Using Golden Brown Airbrush color, airbrush the tracks on the top and side of the cake. Switch to Harvest Brown Airbrush color and then airbrush again to add depth.

  • Step 3

    Using Spring Green Airbrush Color, airbrush the rest of the white icing green to create grass.

  • Step 4

    Pipe a shell border at the base of the cake using Royal Blue icing and Open Star Tip #32.

  • Step 5

    Pipe random clumps of grass on the sides, top and base of the cake using Grass Green icing and Small Grass Tip #133.

  • Step 6

    Place the ATV cake topper on the top of the cake in the set of tracks that run from top to bottom. Add the evergreen trees on the top of the cake.

  • Step 7

    Pipe inscription if desired.
