Unusual topping : A farmyard birthday cake

It’s my grandson’s 2nd birthday today and he loves Old MacDonald and barns, Don Bar he calls it. So I attempted a farmyard birthday cake.

Thanks to Our Eyes Open for this challenge


  1. Alison…I love the cake topping theme. I’ve gotten confused easy enough on Word Press so no worries on the pingback. I don’t think Basil thought I did it on purpose. His weekly photo challenge is great! The only challenge I host is Bird Weekly. Maybe you would like to check it out and play sometimes with your bird photos. I have a theme every week too. 🙂

  2. Thank you Basil for clearing that up. I’ve had 2 pingbacks this week for your challenge. Next week, I will make some changes to the post so they pingback to you instead. 🙂 Sorry about that!


  3. Great cake. Sorry, I wasn’t sure what you were commenting on my blog about because you referenced another blog about the challenge (not mine) so I never got a pingback on this post. Thanks for taking part!

      • 😀. I have a photography blog where I post a photo challenge every week for other photographers to post a photo on a theme I pick every week. “Our eye open” took up the challenge and put up a pic on their blog with a deer cake topper. They did not create the challenge but answered it. Hope that makes sense


  4. Good on you – it takes the love of an extraordinary grandmother to spend that much time and effort. My mother made every grandchildren a birthday cake themed especially for them every year and her grandkids will never forget them. A drumset out of champagne cork, wire and silver lid one year. Sometimes clumsy but always creative.
