Last week, my cake challenge was to make teeny, tiny vegetables out of marzipan. My customer particularly asked for marzipan as the birthday boy, Jack, prefers the taste to fondant. And who can blame him – after all, marzipan is made mostly of almond and is practically one of your 5 a day!


But I didn’t just stop at 5….. I made 9 types of delicious vegetables. There were potatoes, carrots, cauliflowers, red and purple cabbages, swede, pumpkin, leek and aubergine. The marzipan was great to work with – soft and malleable, easy to colour, and perfect for shaping into tiny veggies.


The star of the show, though was my John Deere Tractor carefully shaped from modelling fondant to reflect the exacting specifications of my 13 year old customer. Green and yellow with a matching trailer over-spilling with delicious farm produce.



The cake, in case you’re wondering, was a 10″ square madeira sponge filled with a triple layer of vanilla buttercream and jam.  Delicious! So all in all – it’s really a 3 course balanced meal!

  1. I really like this cake, particularly the eggplants. Sometimes, I prefer creating themed cakes to traditional wedding cakes, because there’s a lot of experimentation and, I think, more creativity involved. What about you, Judith?

    • Hi there Norma. Thanks so much for dropping by. Yes, I really enjoyed making this cake, especially using the marzipan although it was a little sticky! I know what you mean – every cake is a new challenge for me and I love researching the design and trying out new things. Hope you continue to enjoy my blog, as I will yours x
