Massey Ferguson Cake

My friend baked this cake in a Nordicware shaped tin for her son's 1st birthday back in March. I offered to decorate and used buttercream. It was trickier than I thought, trying to get a smooth finish, in hindsight fondant would have been quicker! Anyway, everyone loved it and my friend popped the cake on top of a cake slab with green coconut grass and farm animals around it.

First Knitted "Thing" For The Baby!

This was just done on the Milo Vest. The tree cable pattern is knitted top down, in the round. You can add any embellishments you like, some little bird buttons, hearts, stars or flowers. I'm going to leave it as is, until we find out what we're having! The written instructions have some errors from the software that converts the chart, this is due to be fixed soon.
