Farm Birthday Cake

Also required for this past weekend was a birthday cake for Dylan who was turning 6 years old. He wanted a farm cake with animals.  This was actually quite a fun cake to make. Mel tackled the animals and did a great jobs.

The barn was made up of 4 8" chocolate cakes stacked and filled with Oreo cream cheese filling. We covered the barn in red wood textured fondant and black fondant for the roof.  All the animals were made from fondant/tylose mix. The mud was created with brown coloured royal icing and blue tinted piping gel was used for the pond.  A bail of hay (made from fondant) was added and a little vegetable garden. Here are a few close ups of our farm animals.

The cake was picked up by Dylan's mom Mary (Jackson's daycare provider) and she loved the cake. She was sure Dylan would too!

Happy 6th Birthday Dylan!
