Earlier this month, I had the joy of decorating a birthday cake for a tractor-loving nephew. The idea is not mine; for once I allowed myself to rely on Pinterest.
Usually, cake decorating is a mix of therapy and stress. This time was pure joy.
First, you outline the birthday boy’s age number (in this case, six) and divide the outline into different fields. Oreo crumbs make great soil, and forks or toothpicks dragged through the frosting add texture where needed.
Then, you decorate as you wish, adding plastic animals and equipment.
So simple, and so fun!
