Coolest John Deere Tractor Cake

I used the Pantastic Plastic Tractor pan and followed the directions to make the John Deere Tractor Cake out of candy melts. Then I baked a cake in that pan, and another in a large oval pan.

I stacked the cakes and covered them with green fondant, then attached the tractor to the top with frosting. I used a candy mold and candy melts to make the picket fence all around the oval layer.

The farm animals and letters were cookies decorated with glaze. The chicks and chicken were baked on toothpicks and stuck into the cake.

The “hay” is candy — chow mein noodles covered with melted peanut butter and/or butterscotch chips, then dropped on wax paper to harden.
