Old MacDonald had a Farm…Farmyard Cake

So we got a call during the insanity of the Christmas rush with a request to make a barn yard cake for a sweet little girl from Florida who would be turning 1 just after the new year…Yippee not another Santa or snowman! Don’t get me wrong I love making Santa and snowmen but after weeks on end of holiday cakes it was a nice change. After speaking with both her parents about what they wanted this is what I came up.

Everything was edible, the barn was constructed of Belgian dark chocolate cake with fresh raspberry coulis and chocolate buttercream and the base was vanilla bean cake with Italian meringue vanilla bean buttercream. All of the animals, flowers and farm bits were hand sculpted from our yummy vanilla fondant.

As you can see by the look on Princess Ella’s face she really enjoyed her very first birthday cake! Isn’t she just adorable!
