Actually, he turned 4 on June 29. I didn't 'get around' to making his cake until Saturday. So we kinda celebrated Wednesday AND Saturday.
Several months ago we were discussing birthdays and I asked Bryce (birthday boy) what cake he wanted. I usually let them pick and then figure out how to create their choice. Some 'creations' you really had to stretch your imagination to 'get it' but the boys were always thrilled.
So, back to what kind of cake. Bryce immediately answered that he wanted a Kubota tractor cake. Hmmm, that's a tough one! So, I let it go. Then about a week before his birthday I asked him again what cake he wanted - hoping he had forgotten what he 'ordered' the last time. No such luck. In a very 'I told you this before' tone of voice he said, "I want a Kubota tractor cake!" Well, no getting out of it for me. I tossed a couple of ideas around but nothing seemed right. So, I procrastinated. Until Saturday when I decided I could procrastinate no longer. I half-heartedly looked online for ideas when suddenly, this website stood out to me. Frozen Buttercream Transfer - I had never heard of it. Intrigued, I read the entire thing, then decided I could do this. I happened to have a photo of DH's Kubota tractor on the computer so I blew it up and printed it off.
I wasn't thinking of blogging it so I didn't take any pictures of the process. I basically followed the directions on this site. It was fairly easy - especially for a non-artistic person such as myself. I was rather pleased with the results and the men of the family were thrilled.
Here is the picture of DH's tractor:
And here is what I ended up with:
Birthday boy blows out the candles in one puff!
And HAS to get every bit of frosting from the candle!
