Barnyard Birthday Cake

This is a barnyard themed birthday cake for Ava’s 2nd birthday. It consists of four tiers. The bottom tier is cow print with Ava painted in red. The flavor of this cake is chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge filling.

The next tier is a red painted gingham print with a red bow. This tier is lemon cake with a lemon curd filling. The next tier is covered with green fondant with a white picket fence. There are also sugar barn animals in-between the fencing. I also, added green buttercream around the edge to give it a grassy look. This tier is red velvet cake with a chocolate filling.

The top-tier is the barn. I used the Wilton house pan to create the shape of the barn. For this tier I baked a pound cake as you must have a sturdy cake for the house pan to keep the shape. I covered it with fondant and added the green grassy buttercream around the edges of the house. I also added the sugar chicken to the barn.

What do you think?

  1. This cake was delicious!
    … Sami wanted to know how to make the whip cream you made for the Pecan Pie this Thanksgiving, Thanks

    • Mix two cups of heavy cream with a mixer for about 2 minutes until it starts to firm up and form peaks. Then add two tablespoons of confectioners sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and some cinnamon. Then beat again with the mixer until it forms stiff peaks.

  2. Really cute little cake. Very creative..I’m sure it was a hit. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
