It's a Red Western Cowboy Hat Cake! Does that even make sense? Haha! Probably not, but who cares? You know what I mean!
Since I do lots of cowboy cakes, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet (famous last words) and just give you the bones of how I made it. Okay? Okay!
Here we go:
- The tiers are 6" + 8" round vanilla cake. The top might have been chocolate cake... I have confusing notes on this one 😉
- It was filled and frosted with vanilla buttercream.
- The decorations were homemade marshmallow fondant and Satin Ice fondant (for the red, brown and black).
- To make the hat - you can use this How to Make a Cowboy Hat Cake Topper Tutorial. This was my second cake that had a red hat. You can see the first red hat I made here (and another variation of a cowboy cake).
- I don't have a tutorial for the jeans, belt and buckle, but I can tell you that I use my FMM ribbon cutter, stitching tool, ball tool and silver luster dust (mixed with vodka) to do all the details on this tier.
- It's not exactly the same, but you can read details about how to make a fondant bandana here.
- I used silver dragees on the corners of the sign.
- The texture was done with a wood grain mat.
- I used Fox Run Alphabet cutters to do Casen's name.
- Everything was glued with homemade sugar glue.
- I used a silicone rope mold to do the yellow border.
- The cow print was cut out randomly with a pastry wheel aAdd Mediand glued on with sugar glue. Easy peasy!
- Last thing... you can see yet another of my cowboy cakes here, along with a tutorial for How I Stack Tiered Cakes!
That's it ya'll!! Minimal rambling - maximum cake details!!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend... if all goes well, when you're reading this I'll be away for a long weekend with my husband at a bed & breakfast celebrating our 18th anniversary!
As always, if you have any questions, leave me a comment!! I'll be happy to help out if I can!
