Monster truck cupcakes might be trickier to make than they sound.

I'd recommend forgetting about trying to make the entire cupcake look like one big tire - instead, I'd suggest you use some black fondant and icing to make a tire design.

Balance some of the tires you've made on top of a standard fairy cake and "brooom brooom!" - you've got a monster truck tire cupcake.

How to make monster truck tire cupcakes
To start off with, I'd go for a standard cupcake recipe. For this, you'll need:

  • 100g butter or margarine
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g self-raising flour, sifted
  • A couple of eggs
  • 0.25 teaspoon baking powder
  • 0.5 teaspoon vanilla essence
For the method, check out this website.

Designing monster truck tires using icing
Once you've got your cupcakes baked, then the tricky part starts. I'd suggest creating a circular base-shape for your tire out of something that's easy to cut into neatly (small Rice Krispy treats are a good idea). Use a cookie-cutter to cut them into neat, round shapes.

You'll then need to make a fondant (recipe here), or buy a pre-made one from the store.

For the design, I'd recommend starting with the treads on the tire. Place them around the tire, and then use a second black fondant coating over the rest of the tire.

Press it down so the tread-design pokes through. This should give you a macho-looking design that will suit your cupcakes very well. All that's left is to create a frosting bed for your tires to sit in, and then you'll be ready to hit the gas!

Well, its quite simple. You would use your old recipe for making cupcakes, but you would have to make them look like monster truck tires.

For this bake your cupcakes 4" round. Ice and cover them with black fondant. Make designs around them with chocolate syrup to make them look muddy.

I would advise that you make fairy cakes and add a brown or black stripe down the middle, then use a knife to make a tire pattern. Hope this helps!
