An amazing cake for someone who takes great pride in cutting their lawn ! Father’s Day cake made for my husband. To be honest with you I was kinda stumped for ideas. I had golfing and fishing ideas, but my husband isn’t into either one of those activities. So I came up with a John Deere lawn mower (considering he just loves it so much) and because he maintains the lawn like any professional landscaper. I thought this would be the perfect cake for him. The John Deere lawnmower and the figurine of my husband is made out of modelling chocolate. I needed the cake to be a little sturdy, in order to hold up the John Deere and the figurine. I decided to make a homemade yellow sponge cake and filled it with strawberries and whipped cream (my husband’s favorite) I covered the entire cake with whipped cream and crushed Oreo cookies for the sides of the cake, to resemble dirt. For the grass I colored some of the whipped cream green and used a #233 decorating tip. The final touch I used chocolate covered rocks to give it a more realistic look. I am a big believer that the best gifts are homemade (especially cake) and from the heart. It is the perfect way to toast dad this weekend: make him a cake! I hope that you and all the Father’s in your life have a wonderful Father’s Day!
