a gender-neutral birthday cake
Younger son requested a pink tractor for his 4th birthday cake, so a pink tractor is what he got. The muddy wheels were easy to do with chocolate fudge icing and sprinkles (for pine needles and twigs). The 70s go-faster stripes on the engine were jelly diamonds. It makes me rather sad to realise that I have never seen a real pink tractor on the roads – let alone one driven by a little black jelly baby!
