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.
