Jacoby's Tractor Cake

Jacoby wanted a tractor cake for his birthday, you’ll probably recognize the famous green and yellow color scheme. Jacoby’s mom also wanted cupcakes instead of a large cake, she’s a smart lady…much easier for small children. I did a small cake for Jacoby and cupcakes for the rest of the children.

First the cupcakes….Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream tinted green and yellow. They also had a small amount of buttercream filling too. I ordered tractor chocolate molds and spent an afternoon making chocolate tractors. I think they turned out pretty cool! Each cupcake got a tractor.

Jacoby said “Look Mom, the tractors are stuck in the frosting.”  How cute is that?

The cake was a chocolate cake stacked in a tractor shape and covered with green fondant.  I just made a paper template trying to get the proportions to look right.  The wheels were made of rice crispy treats and covered with fondant.  A few fondant details and done!

And this was a wonderful reminder of why I love doing cakes!
