11 incredible farming-themed celebration cakes

We asked our readers to share farming-themed celebration cakes they have baked or received to mark a special day, and they certainly did not disappoint.

We have been inundated with photos of creative bakes with an agricultural twist – and each time we share some of them on our social media channels we get another photo avalanche of tasty treats.

Why not share your pictures with us – cakes or otherwise – by uploading them to our Farmlife Framed gallery. We really enjoy seeing your snapshots of farming life – whether it’s livestock and crops, or people and pets.

Send us your farming snapshots

Keep your farming photos coming in. We really can’t get enough of them. It’s really easy to submit yours – simply upload your snaps to the Farmlife Framed page.

Be sure to send your photos in as high resolution as possible – the higher the better for print quality. They can be cute, funny, romantic – pretty much anything goes (within reason).

Not only is there a chance that they will appear in the magazine and on our website in our regular Farmlife Framed feature, there’s a chance they could be shared on our FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages, too.
