I made this barn cake for my son's third birthday. I used 2 cake mixes to make 4 cakes in loaf pans, cutting the top off of two of the loaf pans. Then staked a "domed" loaf on top of a flat loaf and put them side by side.
In the "valley" I used 2 long snack cakes with graham crackers on the sides to create the first raised roof. On top of that I used a third of a snack cake and pieces of graham crackers to create the final peak.
The silo is fudge striped cookies stacked together with icing. I put a straw in the middle to prevent too much slipping.
I looked at several pictures on this site, coolest-birthday-cakes.com and at several of the toy barns my son has. Then I just used what I had on hand. I had intended to use the snack cakes for hay bales, but needed them for the roof and so I used toasted coconut for some hay.
Simple chocolate cake cooked in a roasting dish and cut to a #2 (or whatever number you require). I cheated - never very good with icing the sides so just used a green piece of material and pinned it around (alternatively ice...or if you want a classy cheat get some thick green ribbon), make sure you take the pins out before eating!
Iced it with the normal "throw the icing sugar, butter and water in and hope it works" icing, green obviously. Ice accordingly. Chocolate hail for the garden part. Use a knife to put it into rows.
Melted chocolate through an icing funnel thing to make the fences. Pebbles, M&M's, Smarties or whatever you call them in your country for the outside frame and the mini m&m's for the green plants.
Throw on a tractor and a few farm animals and waaalaaa, Out on the Farm Cake!
I made this Barnyard cake for my son's 1st birthday. This cake was so easy and FUN to make!
I made two 8" round cakes (I used yellow cake) and frosted the bottom then added them together. If you have a cake pan or even a lazy Susan it makes it easier for frosting. I used chocolate frosting for the cake, then used green icing for the grass. I crumbled up some graham crackers which you can have the kids do so they can help out.
Once the graham crackers are all crumbled up I sprinkled them onto the cake to make the road, and then two whole graham crackers for both sides of the cake. I added the tractor and cows for the finishing touches.
I had a Fisher Price barnyard lying around and added that to the background.
My daughter loves horses and wanted her barnyard cake to look like a horse ranch. I just started making cakes for a hobby and thought I could do that.
My sister-in-law suggested that I use Twix for the fence post and Kit-Kats for the fence. I shaped the barn and tree out of rice crispy treats and secured them with secures. I used tip #16 to make the tree trunk and tips #352ŝ to make different size leaves for the tree.
I then painted the barn red with food coloring and water and attached the graham crackers doors with icing. I also pipped a brown wagon wheel and some flowers on the side of the barn. Then all I had to do was add some horses and a few friends to keep them company and I was done.
