Tractor Birthday


I got an order a few weeks ago from a sweet lady who needed a cupcake cake for her little guy’s birthday. He was having it a local farm where there is apple and pumpkin picking, along with all the fun fall things everyone loves…corn mazes, apple cider, hay rides…
Don’t you just love fall!?!
She also wanted some tractor cookies for favors.
She ordered 46 cupcakes, and I used 40 of them for the cupcake cake and 6 leftover. I decorated the leftovers with some vanilla buttercream and decorating sugar…
The cookies turned out cute too! ~ all bagged up and boxed
Hope he had a great party!
(and I hope I don’t end up on Cake Wrecks 😉 …if you read that blog, you know how much she LOVES “CCC”s.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Hi Shelly! I've been looking around your blog and I'm so impressed and inspired by your work.
Right now, I'm in the middle of sketching my nephew's birthday cupcakes and decorated cookies. I'm supposed to make monster truck mini-cookies and I'm really nervous because I have to make my own template for the cookies. Anyways, I've never worked with black coloring and will need to for the wheels. Is there a brand that you recommend?
Your help would be very much appreciated!

Don't worry about Cake Wrecks; yours is adorable! Plus, it's actually a form of flattery, or so I imagine all of her "victims" tell themselves 😛

My father would love that cake! Too bad I won't be near home for his 50th birthday next month. Perhaps I can mention to my mother to request a John Deere cake from a bakery.
