Birthday Barnyard Party
This cake was crafted for two 5-year-old friends who are having their joint birthday celebration at a fun restaurant where the kids can feed the horses, pet the sheep and goats, and play in a giant sandbox. The design of the cake was taken directly from the custom invitation that the parents had created. I take no credit for how cute the animals and the barn and silo are -- all I did was copy their incredibly adorable invitation!
Half the cake is white, half is chocolate, iced in buttercream. The barn and silo are made of Rice Krispie treats which I shaped and formed, then covered in fondant. All the animals are fondant-on-a-stick.
Yee-haw and giddy-up, y'all!
