How to make a Taco Cake

I was asked to make a Taco Cake for a 11 year old boy's Birthday party. Nervous about it at first, but realized I could make this fun to make and fun to eat! It was easy after I figured out what to use for all the ingredients. For the taco shell I rolled out snicker-doodle cookie dough really thin in the shape of a tortilla. I baked it until it was golden brown, let it cool for a few minutes then rolled half of it over to cool in the shape of a taco shell.

I made two taco shells and stuffed them both with rounded cake cut in half. I frosted the cake with chocolate frosting before I inserted them in the shells.

Then using crushed Ferraro dark chocolate balls I layered the bottom part of the cake to look like taco meat. I added chocolate sprinkles to fill in the gaps. Then lettuce was strips of green Fruit roll-up, cheese was made from cut ups Starbursts and tomatos were cut in half twizzler tidbits.

Put it all together and viola, you have a Taco Cake! I bet all the boys loved eating sweet tasting tacos!
