Sam's Tractor Cake

My big boy Sam turned 4 a few weeks ago.  I tried to get him to choose what cake he would like me to make, but every time he looked through one of my cake decorating books he picked something different.  Finally we decided on a tractor (with a lot of coersion on my part).  We copied off one of his toy tractors and made out of polystyrene, then covered it with fondant/gumpaste.  It was made over two weeks as I thought he might enjoy being involved in the making of it.  Unfortuately there was no surprise for him on the day but Sam enjoyed seeing the progression until it actually looked like a real tractor.  Fun to make :-)
