Hello Im new here and thought I would ask to see if anyone had any suggestions. I was asked to make a tractor cake for my nephew who is turning 16. He loves driving a tractor. I would like to do it in 3-D so the tractor is actually standing up and not lying flat..any suggestions on how to do this? Thanks so much!!!

I'm a huge fan of fondant covered Rice Krispy Treats. I prefer pre-made because they are always firm. Mold them into your tractor shape, cover with buttercream and then fondant. Then you can put it on a cake decorated with a farm scene. The good part about the Rice Krispy Treat to me is that I can start ahead of time and if I mess it up, I can just start again (vs. having to re-bake a cake because I carved it wrong...) Good luck!
