This weekend I did a cake and cupcakes for a gentleman's 65th birthday. The party organizer told me that he drives John Deere equipment and farms wheat. With that, I wanted to make something simple.
I started with making these wheat head medallions with royal icing to adorn the cupcakes and cake. I went with wheat heads as the décor and John Deere colours. It really came together nicely. The cake was so tall that much of the side was laid bare out of fear of over-decorating.
