My little guy is 8 years old now! He asked me to make him a "farm" themed birthday cake this year so this is what I came up with...
I kept it simple. No fondant, and.....I used my cricut to create all of the little cutouts! It was so easy. I laminated each one and taped a tooth pick to the back. I will definitely be using this technique in the future. Inexpensive and fun. I also used toasted coconut for the hay. He found the little fence at Joanns and asked me to use it on his cake.
All of the layered cutouts came from the "Create a Critter" cartridge. One of my favorite cartridges. The others came from the "Everyday Paperdoll" cartridge.
He loved his cake!
