Farm Birthday Cake

Received a cake order for a "farmer" birthday cake, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, I had a barn mold I had been dying to try out- and I am very pleased with the results.

Nice green cream-cheese icing grass, on a vanilla cake.

Barn was made with Marshmallow Fondant, it stood on its own and was completely edible, including the little weather vane chicken on the roof.

The garden was brown icing piped in rows, with sprinkle "fruit & veggies" and little icing vines.

Added rustic icing "fence" to the sides of the cake, and a little vine on this back one.

Even the barn roof was detailed! I love how it turned out! Hand painted the entire barn: red, black, white, even the gold hinge details.

Also, it was incredibly humid when I stepped outside to take these pictures, I like the natural light best, didn't consider the natural moisture that would blur my camera lens, and make the icing appear wet- I was able to prevent this being an issue at delivery with a good box, the fondant didn't even sag!
