Farm Birthday Cake

Last week I made a fun birthday cake for my little 4-year-old brother. It was pretty easy to make.

The cake is just a yellow cake mix baked in a 9x13 pan and frosted with sky blue and red frosting to make it look like a barn. I used white frosting to outline the doors and window and to create the spider and spiderweb. Chocolate chips form the "X's" of the door and roof. The pig and chick cupcakes are made from a chocolate cupcake mix.

The pigs are frosted pink and have marshmallows for a snout and mini M and M's for nostrils and eyes. The ears are Mike and Ike's.

The chicks are yellow icing stars piped on with a #21 tip for the body and wings and head and mini M and M's for eyes and a Mike and Ike for the beak.

For the sun, I spread yellow icing all over it and used mini M and M's and Mike and Ike's for the face and rays.
