Try our golden ears of corn on your cakes and cupcakes?for summertime or Thanksgiving. The easy bead kernels and pull-out leaves create a freshly-picked look.

Reverse shells look spectacular as top and bottom borders and as framed areas on your cake.

Figure pipe cow heads using a variety of basic techniques, including shell motion head and petal motion ears, dot features and pull-out hair.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

The grass tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the grass tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Our step-by-step video shows you how!

Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.

Chickens provide perfect practice for building up figure piped bodies and heads. You?ll then add a tapered tail and bead-motion wings, for a nicely-detailed bird. These playful chickens can be make ahead of time using Royal Icing as shown below, but they can also be done directly on your cake or cupcakes using Buttercream Icing, just omit the feet.

The Pig is a perfect example of how basic shapes come together in figure piping. With an oval body, round head, pull-out legs and dot features, he's a snap to make.

Little Red Barn Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my niece's birthday and loved it. Had a little trouble with the barn doors looking clean would proabably try covering the graham crackers with melted chocolate instead next time. I used cereal treats for the silo and it probably could have used more than one dowel for support. All the kids loved the animals I substituted a horse for the cow. The royal icing pigs, chickens and horse took a day or so to dry and I would suggest making a few extra in case legs break off. Overall if you have taken a Wilton class or two the directions were pretty easy to follow and this cake is FUN and kids LOVE it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the cutest cake for a friends little boy's 1st birthday. For this barn cake I used the Wilton stand-up house pan for the Wilton sheet cake pan. I made a fence out of sticks of pretzels stuck together with melted chocolate. Within the fence, stood animals and haystacks I used the Wilton mini dome pan then iced them using the Wilton grass tip. The roof I used the Wilton basket weave tip. The barn doors and windows I used Graham crackers. I crushed chocolate graham crackers to look like dirt and sprinkled this around in the shape of a field. On top of this, I put a plastic tractor. It was a huge hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my nephews first birthday and it was a huge hit. Instead of using cookies for the silo, I used a small round cake pan and made several of them to stack. I also made a farmer out of the small standup bear cake pan for the smash cake. I made the animals out of fondant a few days in advance. I used crushed graham crackers for the dirt. I also used graham crackers for the barn doors. This cake is a little more difficult than some and takes a bit of time but the end result is well worth the time and effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made the little red barn cake for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. It was a huge hit. Used wilton fondant to cover the silo (cookies) Made baby farm animals also with wilton fondant. With "grass" frosting and "Mud" frosting it was a fun cake. Used red frosting for the barn and white for trim. Took a little more time than most so make the animals a few days ahead. Was fun and sure turned out cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this cake as my inspiration for my sister in law's baby shower. I didn't follow everything exactly but tweaked a few things just for simplicity. (I didn't make the animals). The only problem I had was getting the house to sit level and remain standing while I transported the cake. Other than that I loved the cake! Will do it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my daughter's 8th birthday, without the silo. Everyone loved it. The only thing that I would change is that I made the bottom chocolate cake and the barn pound cake, so the bottom was not quite dense enough to support the barn. Was somewhat difficult to get the pigs "just right", but was definitely a crowd pleaser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was time consuming for sure, but making those animals is a lot like making play-dough sculptures. I also found that you need A LOT of no taste red frosting dye and I strongly suggest you buy a couple of "no taste red" dyes to start out. It was really really fun though and the cake looked AMAZING when I was finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Since I am a beginner, found this sort of difficult. Not on Wiltons behalf, but mine for choosing it! My daughter loves horses, so, we went with this. I only used horses (its the only farm animal she cares for). Once I got the hang of the tools and such, found it getting muh easier. I love wiltons products!
