First attempt at a novelty cake!

This is my first attempt at a kid's novelty cake! Not the greatest photo as white on white doesn't show the shape very well, but at least Dylan recognised it was meant to be a tractor!! I made 2 carrot cake loaves and cut them to shape, and I used standard cream cheese icing, as I prefer to avoid using artificial colours. The front wheels were chocolate coated doughnuts and rear were chocolate cookies, which I secured to the cake using tooth picks with a bit of licorice on the end of each one. The seat was also made from licorice and the exhaust was a chocolate licorice log.
There was one happy boy when he saw it!
