John Deere Cake Pan

One way to get started is with the John Deere Cake Pan or one of the many other Tractor Cake Pans that you can use to create your John Deere Cake.

When creating your John Deere Cake make sure you have the correct colors for your frosting which of course are Green, Yellow and Black.

John Deere Birthday Cake Topper Kits

Also available are John Deere Birthday Cake Kits - these usually come with the Decorations you can easily place on top of your already bakes and frosted Cakes.

Some will come with John Deere Tractors, Fences, Trees and Instructions on how to put it all together. It makes it very easy to create a scene incorporating the John Deere Tractor.

John Deere Edible Cake Images

If you like you can chose to get one of the many John Deere Edible Cake Toppers which are photos made from edible icing that just get placed right on top of your Frosted Cake. They come in many design choices and a lot of times can be personalized as well.

John Deere Cupcakes

Want some John Deere Cupcakes instead of a John Deere Birthday Cake? Or why not have some of each at the party - you can never go wrong with adding cupcakes.

Have some fun and turn your Vanilla Cupcakes Green and ice them with Yellow Food Coloring and top with some of the fun John Deere Cupcake Picks available.

Turn the cupcakes into a Fun Party Activity for the kids and let them frost and decorate the Cupcakes using some Yellow and Green Sprinkles, Colored Sugar and Candies.

How to make a Tractor Cake

Why not create your own John Deere Tractor Cake. It is not that hard to bake your cakes and stack them to look just like a Tractor - add in some Donuts for your wheels - Frost and Decorate and you have a very cool Tractor Cake you can be proud of and the kids will love it.

This Tractor Cake was made using Two Loaf Cakes - you can bake them yourself or buy some pre-made. They were then cut to size using a knife and two different sized Chocolate Donuts were used for the Wheels.

The fun part is the decorating and you can do this anyway you like. For a John Deere Tractor Frost the entire Cake Green and add in your Yellow details.

My Biggest Tip when frosting a Cut Cake is CRUMB COATING. This means you give the cake a thin layer of frosting and stick in the fridge to harden a bit and them add the rest of your frosting. This helps to not get all the crumbs in the frosting. Very Important if you want it to come out good.
