I am making this cake for a 2 year olds bday. I saw it online. Here is the link. www.flickr.com/photos/sutterby/3319933970/. I need to know what everyone would make the tractor on the bottom out of and how they would do the boots. Also, should I do the animals and the fence out of gumpaste or fonant. I am new and have only worked with fondant. Thanks in advance!
I forgot to ask if anyone knows where I can get a big 2 cutter like the one shown on here. I haven't seen one online. Thanks!
since it's for a 2 year old I would probably do all of the modeling out of fondant or modeling chocolate. Most likely they will try to be eaten.
For the boots, I would probably make them out of Rice Krispy treats and then cover in buttercream and fondant.
for the #2 I would just print out a 2 in the font that you want from Word and then use it as a template and cut it out of gumpaste with an exacto knife
Here's a pattern for boots: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1568302
I would make the boots from gumpaste, I think they'd be a nightmare to make otherwise.
The animals and fence could be made from fondant pretty easily.
