Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake today for my daughter's farm animal themed baby shower which is tomorrow. Due to time constraints, I did not make the silo or the farm animals. I bought some cute whimsical farm animal cake toppers online instead. I also cut the barn doors out of thinly rolled white fondant a few days in advance, since trying to get a smooth coat of white frosting on graham crackers was nearly impossible. I also used the tip 2B for the barn siding. For some reason I found it easier to get the slats on straight using the wider tip. The decorating techniques are not too difficult for someone with a little experience, but the details are time consuming. My biggest difficulty was getting the barn to sit up on the sheet cake without falling over, even though I followed the directions and used dowels in the cake, and a cake board fitted to the bottom of the barn. I finally managed to get the barn to sit up, but noticed awhile ago that it is starting to list a bit to one side. I would love some advice on how to correct this problem in the future. It would also be helpful if Wilton would give recommended amounts of frosting for the different colors. I made what I thought was a generous amount of red frosting, but ended up a little short. I had to make some more, and of course the color did not come out the same. Overall, I was not unhappy with the results. It is a very cute cake, even if the barn is lopsided.
