    I have a feeling if I tried to make that it wouldn't come out so pretty good... Whoever made that one in the photo's is certainly talented.

    I showed that to my wife, who loves to bake. She had two comments. One, she doesn't think she has all those tools ( I'm betting she has most of them!).. Two, she wants to know how long it really took to create that?!?

    My wife took a class on professional decorating of cakes MANY years ago.
    Because of that class,, I found out what professionals use as icing,,,

    To keep the cake moist, the icing is a mixture of Crisco and powdered sugar.
    the Crisco "seals" in the moisture to insure the cake will not taste dry, even after sitting for days.

    I have never had professional cake since then,,,,
    would you knowingly eat Crisco??

    Well,,, cook some chicken in the Crisco,,, I am good to go!!

    I make a cream cheese frosting, no Crisco. It probably wouldn't hold up to making that tire cake, but nothing in it that I won't eat, and it will remain moist for 2 weeks. Some recipes for icing that do not contain the Crisco would work for that, and still remain moist. That recipe with Crisco is just the shortcut that they teach and use so that any professional can do it and have it remain moist, while saving a few pennies per serving.

    I figure, if it took 16 minutes at fast forward speed to see the part they filmed, that doesn't include the mixing and baking of the cake batter, and making the icing, it would take me 12 hours to get it half finished, and I'd end up eating it before I finished it!

    That's really cool. I think I could do something similar with my artistic skills.

    I sketched one up, looks just like it.... The sketch might look a little better than my final result.

    How to Make a John Deere Tire Cake
    I owned several Baskin-Robbins 31 Store for years. My daughter did many of the ice cream cakes for two of the stores and got very good at it. Talent and hard work with ice cream and cakes together. This cake would have been fun to do.

    If I tried it mine would look worse then that. My wife used to make wedding cakes and any other kind people wanted but this tire cake...not any more. Take to long for her now, she can't stand in one place to long. Hard on her back.

    Amazing indeed! I watched the video all the way through and didn't get bored! Better than an episode of Duck Dynasty or Jimmy Houston, a tractor pull or a re run of I Love Lucy!
