I am a 32 year old mom to two boys.I have a 8 year old son and a 4 year old son. I have been married for 9 years and I am a stay at home mom that loves to cook,bake, and blog and spend time with my family in any spare time that we get in our busy lives.
So my little boy turned one this month and I had so much fun making his cakes for his party I thought that I would share the ideas. Enjoy :)
The tractor was his smash cake. I made it out of pound cake so that it was easier to work with and baked it in 2 mini loaf pans. One for the bottom of the tractor and the other for the top and also the wagon in the back. I added 6 chocolate doughnuts 2 large and 4 small (2 small were on the wagon) also added mini oreos for the lights on the front. The "road" was graham cracker dirt and green coconut for the grass. The "hay" in the wagon was yellow coconut.
The red barn cake was made with 2 cake mixes in 2- 9" square pans. Then we cut off the top edges to make the barn shape. Topped the barn with graham cracker square shingles. and pretzel sticks for the window frame. With yellow hay in the window and bottom of the barn with more of the yellow coconut. And more of the green coconut for the grass for the animals to hang out on.
I made little corrals for the animals to stay in during the party made with cardboard and Popsicle sticks. Glued down with hot glue and the grass was shredded preen paper.
The chickens were frosted white and then covered in yellow coconut with mini m&m eyes and the beaks were made from orange slice candy with the corners cut to form a point.
The cows were frosted white with mini oreos for the nose,chocolate covered peanuts for the ears,sugar babies for the horns and mini chocolate chips for the eyes.
The pigs were frosted pink with pink marshmallow noses cut in half. Pink sugar wafer cookies for the ears and mini chocolate chips for the eyes and the nose.
And the sheep were frosted white with mini marshmallows cut in half all over the top and bottom with a large marshmallow cut in half for the face and the other half of the large marshmallow cut in half for the ears. I frosted the inside of the ears with a little pink frosting. And topped it with mini chocolate chips for the eyes and nose.
