Cool Homemade John Deere Cake

This John Deere cake was made for a family friend’s little boy who was turning 4. It was a half white, half chocolate cake baked in a 11” x 15” cake pan. It was iced smooth with white buttercream icing.

I first traced the tractor (I got the outline off of the internet) and then cut the pattern into wax paper. I then used a toothpick to mark the outline on the cake. I carefully drew all of the black lines with a tip 4, and then filled in the colors with tip16 stars.

The yellow stripe and the writing were done with the smooth side of a basket weave tip. The top edge was decorated with tip 18 shells and the bottom edge with tip 22 shells and tip 2 dots in between each.

It really was a fun cake to make! Quenten absolutely loved the cake; he always says John Deere is his favorite!
