Homemade Farming Tractor Cake Design

I made this Farming Tractor Cake Design for my son's 2nd birthday. I made a 9 x 13 chocolate and a 9 x 13 vanilla. I alternated the layers and filled the cake with Oreo filling. The guests raved that it tasted better than it even looked.

The cake is completely iced in buttercream. I used a decorator's triangle to make the field look ploughed. I got a kit from a store for the little accessories on it. My son loved it and he really loved that he could have the tractor on top.

Getting the diagonal line between the grass and the field is a little tough, but if you take your time, you can get pretty clean line. This is important because as my husband pointed out, the fence can not go directly on the dirt line or the tractors could never plough the field. Adding little patches of tufts of grass with some yellow accent for a flower makes a nice finishing touch

The cows and the fence really made it come to life.

Brown Icing Colour
by: Carla

I used the Wilton Gel Icing and only used a little bit at a time to ensure it didn't get too dark.

My husband and I made this tractor cake based on pictures that we found on this site. It really was quite easy.

Two loaf pans made the tractor, one quarter of a loaf pan for the trailer. I'm not the best cake icer, but we both think it turned out really great. I'm so glad we decided to make our son his first birthday cake. He is crazy about anything with wheels, so this is sure to be a hit tomorrow!

We used cereal straws for the smoke stack and to connect the tractor and trailer. We used Rice krispy treats for hay bales! Easy! And also large chocolate cake donuts for the back tractor wheels, small chocolate donettes for the others.

We were going to ice them black, but decided we liked them as is. This is the first cake we have ever tried to make. Anyone could do this. We used Wilton buttercream icing recipe found on the web.

Fantastic!!!
by: Kylie F.

My son is going to turn 2 and he is infatuated with John Deere tractors!! I have created my own cake idea from a combination of ideas I have seen on this website. Your cake is just fantastic and I was wondering how you elevated it off the board? I have thought and thought about this and just keep coming up empty. I would really appreciate your ideas.
Please and Thanks!!!

Cooolest Hauling Tractor Cake 65

Homemade Hauling Tractor Cake

Homemade Hauling Tractor Cake

My babysitter's son wanted a tractor cake and this hauling tractor cake is what I came up with. I baked 2 13x9 cakes and used one as the base. I cut up a small piece to be the base of the tractor and two pieces into small squares and stacked them to be the top of the tractor.

I used another piece from the cut cake to use as the trailer. I frosted the base cake with green on the sides and brown in the center. I proceeded to sprinkle crushed Graham crackers for the the center and green tinted coconut for the edges. I stacked the cake to shape the tractor and frosted that. Then added the trailer and frosted that. The wheels on the cake are fudge covered doughnuts with the centers filled with yellow frosting. The hay bails are doughnut holes covered in yellow tinted coconut.

This was a pretty easy cake to make!

My grandson just loves tractors. I made him a tractor cake for his birthday this year when he turned two (May 2012). I started by making a full sheet cake and icing it with green tinted butter cream icing. I outlined the sides of the cake to make it look like a fence.

I picked up some suckers and M&M's to place on the cake to make it look like a field with rows of plants. I bought some tractors in the cake decorating department of Wal-Mart. They came 6 to a pack. I did add a small John Deer tractor to the cake as well. I used some green rock candy suckers for trees on the cake.

The cake turned out cute and he sure loved it. I think any little boy would love this cake as much as he did. I enjoyed making it for him too!
