My Son's First Birthday Cake

Tractor Birthday Cake

Tractor Birthday Cake

In the tradition of my Mom, we have decided, as new parents, that each year we would make our son's birthday cake. For his first birthday, we decided to make him a tractor birthday cake. This tractor cake, was made from a simple mould bought at Micheals. It actually came with instructions on how to colour in the parts, so that the end result was the picture on the package.

Did you know black icing is hard to make? We kept making dark blue and purple instead of black.

We had so much icing left over, we actually made 2 cakes, and still have one sitting in our freezer.

tip on making black frosting
by: Katie

FYI: if you begin with chocolate frosting, then add black food coloring, it will be much quicker/easier to get a good black. I bet the kids had fun with the purple tongues and teeth! Nice Job!!!
