Farmyard

This cake was a big team effort. My three monsters decided that they wanted my undivided attention this week when I had this cake to do. My very good friend Jane (Jane's cakes) popped over to find me up to my armpits in kids and cake mix and very kindly finished mixing up my cakes and put them in the oven. (This first cake I made I put twice the amount of butter in...oops). I was also supposed to do 28 cupcakes with this one but luckily it is only the cake now.....but thinking I was running out of time fast and having spent two nights up till 2.30am I enlisted the help of my very artistic brother who I might add has just arrived back from Canada and is staying with us. He made the ride on lawn mower and trailer for me - it probably wouldn't have gotten done if I had had to do it and I can assure you it wouldn't have looked half as good as his cool one. Thanks Jane and Jase!!!!!

Also a big thank you all of you who gave me inspiration for this cake. Bella cupcakes, 4GoodnessCake! and Aine2 (I so love her cows).

The bottom tier of this cake is for twins boys who turned 2 on Sept 3rd and the top tier is for their baby brother who was born on their birthday - what a cool 2nd birthday present!!!!!!
