Farm Cake

Remember the Puppy Cake I baked for my friend's daughter, Gauri? That was a surprise for her on her actual birthday. Her party was today at Monkey Joe's. Now because Gauri loves animals, I baked her a Farm Cake.

I baked two 8" eggless chocolate cakes. I spread some chocolate ganache, whipped cream and sliced strawberries on the first layer. Placed the second layer on top and covered the whole cake with chocolate ganache.

I let the flavors marry overnight. The next day I colored some buttercream frosting with green color and frosted the top of the cake using grass tip to cover the top with grass.

I then piped tiny yellow flowers on the grass.

I piped the fence around the cake with whipped cream.

Placed the animals on the top.

I printed out a barn image on regular paper and glued it on construction paper. I attached a toothpick on the picture with some tape and wrote the message on the picture.

Everyone at the party loved the cake. It was extremely moist and delicious!
