how to make a money cake


I started with one round chocolate cake


one yellow 13x9 cake


twenty one dollar bills........


tape the dollars end to end by the short ends to make one long chain 


fanfold the bills so that they are half the size and will fit in a box


take the small box and make sure the bills fit through the slit in the top easily


see the bills wont touch the cake. they touch the box.......


cut a hole the size of the box in the cake. this is where the dollars will be


put the bills in the cake with just the top sticking out to attach to something


frost the cake right up to the bills- don't worry if a little frosting gets on the money


decorate as you wish......... that cement truck is frosted
onto a piece of cardboard that is taped to the dollar sticking out
you need to hide it well for the surprise


another angle




the top I have chocolate cake with the backhoe digging out the cake
and some rocks of chocolate covered raisins


see how cute?


no body will ever know......
until the candles are blown 
and the cement truck is lifted
then the taped money will follow
and the more he pulls, the more money will come up.......

FUN!    I can't wait!

who can YOU make a money cake for?
