Farm Tractor in a Strawberry Field

Made this cake for a man very close to my heart, kind of like a second father. I grew up next door to him and he was a farmer. The tractor was created from rice treats and the farmer, his wife, and the cat were created from gum paste. The tractor is positioned in a field of strawberries. The farmer and is wife are a representation of them over 30 years ago. She would always bring coffee and cookies to the field for morning and afternoon break and the cat would follow, and he was always chewing on a piece of grass.

The cake is a vanilla almond cake drizzled with brown sugar syrup and filled with strawberry cream and fresh strawberries. Sorry the second picture is a bit blurry.

Hi Rose, the tractor is made from rice treats covered with a 50/50 mix of gum paste and fondant. It was a labor of love for a person very near and dear to my heart. thank you for asking :D
