This is a cake that I made for my number one nephew. The boy loves tractors. The cake itself was made from a tractor cake pan. A few days before I acutally made the cake I went ahead and molded the wheels, the window and the engine in the cake pan itself with candy melts. I knew I could never replicate the tires or the windows with the star tip or any other tip for that matter. I enjoy working with chocolate or candy melts. Whenever I make any sort of cake or cupcake I always immediately think of how I can incorporate it into my design.
The cupcakes were pretty easy. The cute little lambs are made with mini-marshmallows. The other animals were piped using a number 2 tip.
The trailer was just a slice of cake that I poured melted candy melts over. The wheels are mini-cupcakes with melted candy melts as well.
I doubt I will ever be able to top this cake for my number one nephew. You bet I'll keep trying though.
