I was asked by a friend of mine if I could create a tractor birthday cake for her 3 year old son. This was something I had never done before, but was so excited to take on the challenge and I am so glad I did!
The birthday boy loved it!!
In the creative process of designing this cake I decided to have a little fun and posted different pieces of the cake as I was putting it together to see if some of my friends and family could guess what I was making.
This was a special music inspired birthday cake. I incorporated the piano keys in bright colors along with musical notes for our little friend James. He and his family enjoyed requesting their favorite colored keys to eat.
I often am asked why I enjoy working with fondant when decorating cakes and I always say, "because the possibilities for me to tap into my creative side are endless with fondant." When asked if I would be able to create a civil war themed birthday cake I gladly accepted the challenge.
I enjoyed getting the opportunity to work with a bit of gold dusting powder on the buckle and buttons on this hat cake.
This cake was created for someone who is an active participant in civil war reenactment.
