Next we glued kabob sticks to the back of each one so we wouldn't have to stick the actual wood cut out down in the cake. I say "we" because I did help out with this process. The Kids are responsible for decorating the cake, not prepping the materials.
It was time for the decorating to begin. Colton used Creme Cheese frosting to cover his cake.....but we weren't going for the snowy farm look so he spray painted it with green frosting.
Now it was time to start putting the farm together. He started with the White fence that we had glued a sun and a Rooster too. I had to keep reminding myself that this was his project and he could put the animals wherever he wanted to. Of course I would make suggestions, but he put them where he wanted and I thought he did a good job.
For the finishing touches, he squirted green frosting around the fence line and around all of the animals. We were going for the grass was growing up around them look.
Here it is. Colton's Farm and first Cake decorating project.
You can't see it from this picture, but he had a bucket in the middle with yellow sprinkles in it to make it look like feed. Good Job Bubba :)
Kinley had her first experience with licking the spatula
Next up, Bailey Girl!!! Her cake was a White Funfetti cake with Vanilla frosting.
I think Kinley was a little overly excited in this picture.
She knows there is going to be another spatula coming her way.
Bailey decided she wanted her cake to say TPES (Timberwood Park Elementary School) Rocks. Of course I had to step in at that point. I wanted it to be legible so I wrote the words for her.
Bailey has pretty handwriting, but I don't know how pretty it would have been on a cake.
She sprinkled each letter with a different color,
and then she spray painted around the edges with purple food coloring and added a little confetti.
She was happy with it and so was I.
Unfortunately, neither of them won, but we went to the School Carnival and Bailey managed to win Colton's cake in the cake walk. Her cake was already gone by the time we got there. Nobody got their feelings hurt and it was fine with them that they didn't win. Actually, it didn't phase them one bit. It didn't bother any of us one bit to devour Colton's cake when we got home either.
It was Yummy!!!
