Wonderful DIY Cool John Deere Green Tractor Cake

VIEW IN GALLERYtractor-cake-FTractors are popular among young boys and grown men alike, and John Deere is a well-known and trusted brand. It is not uncommon for a boy to ask for a John Deere-themed birthday party or for anyone to want to surprise a grown man with a similar party featuring the tractor brand.
However, purchasing a John Deere cake can be expensive. You can make your own cake that resembles general themes of a John Deere tractor for little money. There are so many fun ways you can do this and I am going to share with you right here.

What you will need :
Two rectangle cakes baked in Alphabet cake pan (see dimensions below)
9″ round cake for the base, 4″ tall, filled and frosted
Buttercream frosting (stiff and regular consistency)
Sharp knife
Piping bags and large round tips or just use the coupler
Cardboard cake round (9″ is the size I used)
Fondant in the colors you need (I use homemade marshmallow fondant). I used green, black, gray, white and yellow.
The Mat (or however you usually roll out fondant)
Rolling pin
Xacto knife, pizza wheel, and/or FMM Ribbon cutter
Cracker or cookie crumbs or brown sugar for dirt
Large and small donuts (or you could use rice cereal treats if you want)
Round cookie cutters (several sizes)
Gum paste tools
Sugar Glue & small paint brush
