Homemade John Deere Tractor Cake

I made this John Deere Tractor Cake for a co-worker and I used the same idea that I found on this website. The tractor alone wasn't enough cake for the party so I added the trailer and hay bales.

I used the plastic tractor pan that I purchased from my local cake decorating shop and I made a 1/2 sheet cake to cut the trailer, tires, and hay bales. I believe the other lady that made this cake on the site said she should have used cupcakes instead of cutting circles from the sheet cake - I should have listened!

I iced everything in buttercream and finished the tractor with the star tip.

Homemade John Deere Tractor Cake

My Dad John, collects tractors, toy and real. They are his life. I was asked to create a John Deere Tractor cake for his 71st birthday. I included my memory of him and I as a child with him on the tractor.

I used gumpaste, fondant, buttercream with a yellow cake dyed green and yellow for the 4 layers. Tractor and accessories all done by hand.
I never went to school to bake or had any professional training. I was very happy with the end results, although very time consuming to create with such details. I hope you enjoy seeing it.

As a cake maker myself, I can tell by looking that a lot went into this cake. I had the same idea in mind for a cake for my father-in-law, with the John Deere tractor and the garden. It's really beautiful seeing the finished product. I was trying to find one for my 4 yr. old turning 5, because (like Grandpa) he wants a John Deere cake, and I saw yours while I was looking at some for him.

Best one I have seen

This is the best farm cake ever. My niece just got married and I made this cake for her husband as the grooms cake. I wrote on the side "The Farmers" this is his last name. The cake was the hit at the wedding reception.
The was not a morsle of cake left. I gave you all the credit as I copied your cake. Great idea.

My goodness. I thought, "wow, I cannot even ask my baker to do this or they will flip out over all the details..." I can't believe you did this yourself and you aren't in the cake business. Amazing!

This cake is amazing. I've been looking for something like this for a friend of mine who has a garden. If you are willing to share, I would love to have instructions from beginning to end on how you put this cake together. How did you make the tractor, vegetables, man, cart. Your work is awesome and so detailed. You must have worked on this for a while. Your help would be greatly appreciated. I only have a week to come up with soothing and would love to surprise him with something like this. He would absolutely love it. Thank you so much for your help.

Like many others, I got my ideas from this website for a John Deere Tractor Cake. The cake is colored in fondant and I crushed graham crackers to use as the dirt. The hay stacks are Rice Krispie treats.

I used my children's foam blocks covered in foil as the raised support under the cardboard that I cut out in the shape of the tractor and trailer.

I made this for my son's 4th birthday. The detail on the tractor cake was done with colored chocolate (white and milk chocolate). For the hay bales I cut squares of cake, frosted them yellow and rolled them in browned coconut. I think I got that idea from this website :)

I wish I had thought more about how to connect the tractor and the wagon. I had to wing it at the last minute with the "male" piece of a wooden train set and a broken necklace.

For the cake you explained that you used chocolate to form the tractor. did you make the cake and after that did you use the empty mold and poured the chocolate in? I was just wondering.

other hay option

tractor/trailer cakes are so much fun to make - crushed shreddies makes for great hay effect too!

Homemade John Deere Tractor Birthday Cake

I frosted the John Deere Tractor Birthday Cake with Wilton's whipped icing (my favorite). Then I traced the tractor into the icing with a toothpick. I found this tractor from online coloring pages.

Then I piped the outline of the tractor with black icing using a writing tip. Then I filled in the colors. I sprinkled yellow and green sugar on the border.
