Step 1 - Pretzel Fence for Farm Birthday Cake

Whether you're baking a cake or buying a ready-made cake from the grocery store, you can set the scene for your farm with a sweet little pretzel fence.  All you need is a bag of mini pretzel sticks and a serrated knife.

I used a full pretzel stick for the vertical pieces, the horizontal pieces were the shortest and the diagonal pieces were a length in between.  Depending on the height of your cake, you can experiment and see what works best for you.  

TIP: Gently saw back and forth with the knife.  Pressing down hard with the knife may make the pretzel break in the wrong spot. 

Step 2 - Little Animals for Farm Birthday Cake

After you have a fence for the animals, it's time to move them in! I used the Terra brand from of Amazon and liked the detailing and authentic look that they have.

My favorite party hack is using something I already own, so make sure to look for animals that your child may already have! Add them on top of the cake, or if they are tricky to stand up on the cake, add them to the table around the cake works just as well. You can add a mini hay bale and a crate of apples to the table for a fun farm vibe.

Step 3 - Cake Topper for Farm Birthday Cake

It's no secret that kids love to see their name on something.  It just feels so special and adding a cake topper is just the easiest way do this (a million times easier than piping a name with a frosting bag)  This cake topper has a cute cow print flag on each end to go with the farm theme.

Step 4 - Bandana Garland for Farm Party

If you're like me, you love a quick and inexpensive party decoration! This bandana garland cost $3 and was done in less than 5 minutes!

  • Roll up each bandana and tie a knot in the center.
  • Connect them by tying the end of one into a knot with the next one. 
  • Make it as long as you want and use whatever colors you want.  So EASY!
