For Hay Day’s 7th birthday, we’re celebrating with a farm-tastic
Hay Day Birthday Bake Off. Today, bakers
Laurie “The Icing Artist” Shannon, and How to Cake It’s Yolanda Gampp
will compete in a custom cake challenge. At the end of it, we’ll need you to help us decide
whose cake creation will become
a new decoration for your farm. Let’s meet our bakers. I’m Yolanda from How to Cake It. I, no jokes, studied Hay Day,
I researched, I tried to get into the Hay Day mindset. Today, I’m making a peacock, because I want it to be a new
decoration in the Hay Day game. So I hope you guys vote for me. My name is Laurie.
I am the host of The Icing Artist. My approach is to make
as many tiny cute things as possible, because people love tiny things. My inspiration came
from my favorite part of the game, which is planting various vegetables
in these perfect little rows, and that’s what I did with the cake. And they’re off! To make my peacock cake, I baked 13 pounds
of my ultimate vanilla cake, and I dyed it yellow and green. For the challenge, I decided
to make a vegetable garden cake. I won’t go in depth with the recipe, because I know you want
to get to the good stuff. So now, it’s time to carve. My cake is chilling.
I need to make a peacock head. I am using
my sculpting rice krispie mixture. My secret ingredient? Love! I bake it into everything. Also jam.
Everybody loves jam. This one won’t be covered in fondant,
but you don’t need it fully smooth, because the top will be covered
with yummy-looking vegetables. And inside each little individual garden, I added some chocolate cookie crumbs. It’s time to cover my cake,
and the head. For this, I’m using
some gorgeous blue fondant. Like the peacock
just got out of a shower, and this is the hot towel. I have some more blue fondant that I rolled out in sheets
to create the wings. Not only he’s peacocking,
but he’s in fashion. I’ll customize the cake
with my favorite veggies, starting with the pumpkin. Next, we’ll do corn on the cob, which is
one of my favorite summer snacks. This cake will need more color, so I decided to make some purple cabbage. And I can move on to the tail. His eyes are not symmetrical on purpose. This is not any run-of-the-mill peacock. Now, I have to add height to this cake, so I thought we would do
some tomato vines and pepper vines. So now it’s time to put
my peacock together. Petey is going to come together! I think we killed this challenge. Now, it’s time for you to decide
who will take the cake. Click the link below to vote
