This is the final tutorial for the farm cake – the shed, the horse and cow.
To make the shed, I began by making a template from thin cardboard
Leave to dry until hard (probably up to 48 hours, but at least 24 hours)
Once dry, assemble the shed. I used containers either side to hold the sides in place.
Unfortunately I’ve misplaced the photos of the horse!! But I basically rolled out a chocolate brown oval. Marked two black eyes using an edible marker and made the ears using the same method as the pig. For the hair, I used some darker brown fondant and put it through my sugar shaper to get my strands of spagetti (you could use a garlic press for this) and then glued them onto my horse head. The last thing I did was to attach half a toothpick to the back of the head before leaving it to dry overnight.
For the cow, I started by cutting by hand the cow’s body and attaching just above the fence
I then made the ears (same method as for the horse) and stuck a pink and white ball together for the cow’s face and indented the nostrils.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the farm cake tutorials 🙂 Here’s a picture of some matching cookies I made for the baby shower. Cello bags were from ebay and the labels were made in Illustrator.
