I just did one like two weeks ago. I was going to make them out of cruellers but the size of the cake was HUGE. I ended up using sytrofoam and covering in black fondant. I don't see why you couldn't make them out of RKT. I personally wouldn't use cake. How many servings do you need? Perhaps there is something you could add to the design to increase the serving count.

I am doing a tractor cake, made on wood stand with post on bottom , I sitting it on a full sheet cake , making it look like a field, so that I can get more servings for quest. I still deciding on tractor tires, I think cake will definitely fall over. I might use the suggestion of styrofoam. Thanks Bonnie

I would love to see what you did for the tires! My son wants a tractor cake. I recently made a CARS cake, cut out cake for tires and covered them in fondant. It worked great. But a tractor is taller and you need bigger tires. Hope it worked!

I have tried using cake wrapped on fondant for the rear tractor tires and they fell over even with support. Look at my JD Tractor- I needed more servings too so I made the tractor going through a wheat field. Good Luck!
