If you have truck lovers in you home, this is a perfect idea for a birthday cake or other special occasion.
I love adding decorated cookies to cakes, as it gives it more personality and dimension.
This cake was made for three birthdays – a jeep lover, monster truck lover, and a person who drives dump trucks. It made for a fun birthday celebration. They were all surprised and loved that their names were written on the cookies.
