After seeing the Little People farm cake decorating kit, I decided I could do something similar using the Little People Farm I was thinking about buying my son for his first birthday anyway.
Wilton had instructions on their website for a “Little Red Barn Cake” which was awesome, but called for creating the animals out of fondant / icing.
I ended up combining a few different plans, and came up with this. I used a brownie base and inset the Wilton stand-up house cake. By using brownie, I did not need to use dowels and still had the benefit of the extra dessert.
