Old McDonald Had A Farm Cake

FONDANT PIGS......



FONDANT CHICKEN......




FONDANT BABY CHICKS......
(I know, they kind of look like ducks!)






FONDANT COWS......








FONDANT HORSES....  AND A SHEEP!





This is the cake that I've been working on.



Cute, isn't it?



This cake was made for Ryan's 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Inderrieden, who we absolutely adore.  She had a family reunion this week for the McDonald Family.  The theme of the reunion was "Old McDonald Had a Farm".  What a cute idea, huh!  Well, this cake was a lot of fun to make, and it was made by my whole family.  The kids got involved making fondant animals.  Erin made the chicken and baby chicks, which turned out great.  Jim made the cows and the horses, and I made the pigs and the sheep. Adam helped by eating some of the fondant.  If you look closely in one of the pictures, you'll see an over-sized rooster that Ryan made.  We only put it on for pictures.

The sheet cake and the barn were both carrot cake, with a cream cheese filling.  We made the silo with Rice Krispie treats.  I made the fence posts out of modeling chocolate, but realized afterward that I should have just used big Tootsie Rolls.  Oh well, they turned out really cute.

We were really proud of this cake when it was done.  The kids begged me to wake them up early so that they could see their creation one last time before it went out the door.  Thanks to Mrs. Inderrieden, for giving my family something fun to do this week.  This cake was a lot of fun!
