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?
