Tractors, Tractors, Tractors!
When I first started in the Cakery I didn’t realise that one of my first cakes would become my calling card, and be one of the things I would become known for….. “the tractor cake!”
Obviously I should have known with the beautiful Norfolk countryside and its wonderful farmers, that tractors would be popular, but what I didn’t realise is just how many different tractors there are….. I am beginning to find out!
I love making the tractor cakes, because of the detail involved in making them as close to the requested model as possible and the challenge of standing them up off of the floor to make them look like they are really ploughing the fields! I cant possibly give away my gravity defying cake secret, but needless to say its all about the balance!
The red Massey Ferguson cake I loved, because of the driver and because of its vintage look.
So there they are, my tractor cakes, I wonder how many more fabulous types and models I will get to know and cake!
