I made this Cow birthday cake for my son's 4th birthday. I got the idea off of a few different cakes that I found online. I can't remember how many boxes of cake mix I used because it's been almost a year but I think that I used 2.
The body of the cow was baked in a 10 inch round spring form pan and the head was baked in a 8 inch round spring form pan. The legs are just two cupcakes and the ears are 1 cupcake cut in half. For the icing I put a thin crumb coat on then I piped the brown spots on the cow and the did the rest with white frosting. And then you can just use whatever candy you wish for the eyes and nose and whatever else you decide to do.
This was my first cake that I had ever done that wasn't just a regular rectangular cake and it was super fun but pretty time consuming! Hope you enjoyed!
This Highland Cow birthday cake is a very time-consuming but fun cake to make with little cow cupcakes (which were back up in case the main cake went wrong!).
I built the cake up in layers to make the main body and head of the cake. I then covered the cake in butter-icing to stick the pieces together. I then laid a thin layer of chocolate icing over the cake. The feet and nose are made out of icing and were added. I added the fur and eyes. To finish it off I added the grass by pipping green butter icing.
I made this Cow Birthday Cake Idea for my daughter's 8th birthday. She loves cows. For the base I made a round sheet cake and covered it with cream cheese frosting (simply mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and a little milk). For the spots I also used cream cheese frosting with black food coloring.
For the cow I baked one little round cake and a little cake in a bowl. I cut the head out of the round cake and put it on the bowl cake with a skewer. Then I frosted the cow. I found some daisies from Wilton's and thought they go perfectly with the cow.
I made this homemade cow birthday cake for my son's 1st birthday farm themed party. I used the Wilton's animal crackers cake pan. I used a chocolate cake mix and buttercream icing and a can of Betty Crocker's black spray icing. I dipped my icing spatula in cold water to get the smooth appearance.
The squiggly eyes and cow bell I bought at Hobby Lobby. I attached the bell with twine and placed the cake on top of the ends. I also made a pig cake using the same pan located in the pig category. It was a big hit at the party!

Homemade Cow Birthday Cake
Homemade Cow Birthday Cake
I made a 2 tier pound cake - marbled with chocolate and vanilla. I covered the cakes with fondant and rolled out bits of black fondant to make the shapes and stuck them on with egg white.
I made the cows freehand out of fondant and toothpicks to secure the body parts. I made stars and covered them with edible glitter. The 50 is also made from fondant, covered with edible glitter. the candle was purchased.
This is a Homemade Cow Cake Idea I made and iced for one of my work colleagues - we work for a dairy consultancy company and Andrew also breeds and shows cows so it was extremely appropriate and (according to him) the best cake ever!
It was made with one flat sheet cake, and after cutting the general shape I sketched out what I thought was quite a cute cow. Filling in the shape with piped stars makes it so much easier!
