There is something about Barns and Farms that everyone loves.
It’s hardly surprising that it’s a very popular theme when it comes to birthdays too. So what better way to celebrate a special day!

The great news is that the barn and cupcakes are a lot easier to make than it might seem. Using candies, coconuts, marshmallows and some carefully placed graham crackers, you can make all of these adorable creatures and their barn easily.
