John Deere Tractor

This is a Sour Cream Chocolate
Cake  for a cute little boy turning 2.
He loves watching all the machinery
going by outside this time of the year so
the mother chose to incorporate this into his birthday.
Another first for me in sculpting a John Deere tractor in fondant.. turned out pretty well for my first.
It is approx.  3"x 3" on a oval cake to serve 10.
Happy Birthday Mason

Flower Pot Cupcake

A small cupcake flower pot to celebrate
a birthday.  Not exactly what I envisioned due
to the fact I couldnt find certain items and colors
that I thought would be easy to find
  so I had to make due with what I had.
The cupcakes were Carrot Cake with
Cream Cheese Icing
