Farm Animal Cake

Happy 1st Birthday!  A barnyard full of farm animals greeted the birthday baby, who happily dug into his carrot cake.  Made at special request with half whole wheat flour and extra virgin olive oil, the carrot filled cake was slightly more healthful.  The cake is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant.  The modeled pigs, sheep, ducks, and hay bales are made of purchased fondant, since they aren’t meant to be eaten.

Here are a few closeups of the cute farm animals while the cake was still in progress.

The barn is 3-dimensional and made of golden butter cake covered in fondant.
