My husband and I made this tractor cake based on pictures that we found on this site. It really was quite easy.
Two loaf pans made the tractor, one quarter of a loaf pan for the trailer. I’m not the best cake icer, but we both think it turned out really great. I’m so glad we decided to make our son his first birthday cake. He is crazy about anything with wheels, so this is sure to be a hit tomorrow!
We used cereal straws for the smoke stack and to connect the tractor and trailer. We used Rice krispy treats for hay bales! Easy! And also large chocolate cake donuts for the back tractor wheels, small chocolate donettes for the others.
We were going to ice them black, but decided we liked them as is. This is the first cake we have ever tried to make. Anyone could do this. We used Wilton buttercream icing recipe found on the web.
