Monster Truck Fruit Tray
While I do love celebrating everything with a fun themed cupcake sometimes I need to be a little more responsible. So for our upcoming Monster Jam adventure, I made a fun monster truck fruit tray. It turned out super cute and would work great for a birthday party or just a fun afternoon snack before you head out to see monster trucks in person.
The key to getting a decent monster truck design out of fruit is to create a simple template ahead of time. I started by printing a monster truck image I found online. Then I used it as a guide to draw a bigger version on parchment paper.
Once I was happy with my shape, I cut around the outline and flipped it over onto my serving tray. This keeps the pencil lead away from the fruit.
I think keeping the truck one color makes the most sense, so I opted for a truck body of mandarin orange slices and then just added a fun stripe of strawberries.
The tires are made of dark red grapes but I think blackberries or blueberries would be awesome as well. I opted to use mini marshmallows for the side wall of the tires and the truck window. I think bananas, jicama or cups of yogurt dip could also work well.
