Tractor Cake

Nothing runs like a Deere and nothing tastes like a birthday cake.  This creation is a combination of both!  I made it to help a little friend who loves tractors celebrate his second birthday in style.  I tinted the batter green and yellow and alternated colors when I stacked the cake layers so that each slice was striped when the cake was cut.  Fun!

I heard that the birthday boy went right for the tractor and "drove" it around the table - the ultimate compliment!

I used a great tutorial by Kosmic Custom Cakes that I found on to make the boots.  Click here to see it.  A big thank you for all the help!


Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - I love hearing from readers! Happy caking!
