A yellow tractor cake! My little client knew exactly what he wanted for his 6th birthday. Vanilla cake was the flavour chosen. OK, now my client was not after a 3D tractor but wanted more of a 2D tractor shape. I made two 25cm vanilla cakes, levelled them both then joined together with some vanilla buttercream icing. Using a template I had drawn onto baking paper, I carefully cut the tractor shape out. I then crumb coated the cake with some buttercream icing and left to set. Colouring the fondant is always a little time consuming so this was the perfect time to get this done. Once the icing was set, I covered the cake in the coloured fondant. Cutting the extra decorations from fondant also to finish it off. To finish off the board on this one, I decided to pipe some green buttercream all around the tractor to look like grass. My little client was very happy with his tractor cake and couldn’t wait to get into it!
