My youngest had a Farm themed party for her 2nd birthday. I searched online and found a cake I liked and used that to make her birthday cake. It turned out really well, except for the fact that it leans a bit. I've since learned that dowels inserted inside 2 tiered cakes are a good thing! I used gum paste to make the animals on top and treated it just like play-doh. A couple of well placed toothpicks helped keep the animals together.
