Ok, my camera is dying so the colors are awful but i just had to show you!  My plan worked!!  Bwaahaahaa!!

Here are some 'work in progress' shots

The small wheels are regular size cupcakes, the big ones were made in a large muffin tin.  The body is made from a mini loaf pan!

I cut the wheels to make a notch for the body to fit in but I knew that the body would be heavy so I added 2 dowels and a piece of plastic to hold it up

Thanks for looking!

Haha!  Fantastic!  Thanks for including the in-progress shots, because they made it even more amazing.  "How is that going to become that tractor?"  Lo and behold, it did!

That is a kick ass cake!  I was also wondering how the progression to tractordom happened but your pics worked it out for me.  Excellent work.

Riverwatson - I used this really nifty mini loaf pan that I got at a yard sale:

The top was rounded, as cake usually does - and I left it that way instead of cutting it flat and it was just the right shape for the hood of the tractor!  I already had the tractor frosted when I realized I hadn't taken a picture of the loaf before I frosted it. Cheesy

It was the most solid part of the tractor, that's why I did the two dowels with the plastic "country crock" plastic thing.

**BlueWolf - - it was for the son of the owner of the company I work for.  The son has his own business called "one man and a tractor" (clever) and loves John Deere stuff.
