Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used gumpaste to model the tractor and brown sugar for the dirt. The scene is painted on with airbrush colors and white. I only needed lemon extract for the sky background as I wanted it to wash on lightly.

I love farm/country themes, this is gorgeous!

Thank you. I'm beginning to really like painting on my cakes.

Beautiful job of painting. I've never tried painting on cakes and wonder whether the cool cakes sweat at all while they're being painted and whether you put them back in the fridge afterwards ... wrapped up? not wrapped up??

I'm sorry I never saw this question before. I do not paint on a cool cake. Because I have a layer of ganache under the fondant, I do not need to keep it chilled. I'm pretty sure it would sweat and ruin the paint job if you chilled it.
