Hey ya’ll! Sorry for the lack in posting lately, but I’ve been busy! Today was my best friend from high school’s son’s birthday party and I helped her with the cake. He just turned two, and he loves cows, and anything John Deere. (I guess that’s what you get for growing up in the North Dakotan countryside!)
We decided to just use boxed cake mix, as we figured the decorating would take a while. I also made just basic wilton buttercream frosting. Not my personal favorite, but little kids love the stuff as it’s full of sugar.
Here’s a picture of the finished cake:
Here it is at another angle. We bought some tractor and animal toys to decorate it with. I figured I could pipe the animals out of frosting, but they would be small, or make them out of fondant, But my friend wasn’t a huge fan of fondant and she wanted something on the cake he could play with later. These toys were perfect!
We also made the birthday boy (Tylan) his own little cake he could just rip apart, and that’s exactly what he did. I didn’t get a photo of the aftermath, but here’s one before he got his hands on it:
Also if you haven’t yet, let me remind you to mosie on over to Alisa Cooks an amazing dairy free blog, and vote for your favorite ZenSoy recipe in the contest! (Like my chocolate banana brownies with coconut butter, for example! haha)
ZenSoy makes some delicious soy milks and puddings. They’re kind of hard to find in my neck of the woods, but I shopped around a bit and found some. Also on their website they sell cappuccino flavored soy milk which I’m dying to try but I can’t find any near me. : /
So that’s what I’ve been up to lately, and hopefully I’ll be back later this week with some deliciousness! I’ve got a few dessert recipes I want to try out this week so It should be good!
