For Justin’s first birthday, the theme was a western/cowboy party! I had so much fun with the details on this cake. For the first tier, it was red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream and Justin’s mom requested that it be blue jeans.
For the blue jeans tier, I used a stitching tool from this Wilton set to get details on the fly, the belt loops, and pockets… and I used edible silver paint and silver dragees for the details on the belt buckle.
The silver paint was not what I expected and I probably won’t buy it again, but after several coats, I got the desired effect. The belt itself was Satin Ice Dark/ Chocolate Brown fondant and the yellow rope was homemade marshmallow fondant.
When all was said and done… I was in love with this cake!
Any questions about this cake? Leave them in the comments and I’m happy to answer them if I can!!
