Howdy y'all' I just finished this super cute and super girl cowgirl cake. This cake seems really difficult, but it really isn't! After covering both layers of cake with plain fondant I stacked them using dowels and butter cream. To give the look of the wooden fence I used an X-ACTO knife to slightly cut the fondant into fence post. Do not press too hard, the object is to scrape the fondant it and not slice it. Slicing can cause your cake to dry out. I scraped a wood grain design in each fence post. I mixed a little bit of vodka (or water) with brown food gel and lightly brushed on the fence post. The jean layer took a little more time. I cut out the belt using my rolling cutter and wrapped it around and "glued" to the cake, making share the seam was in the front since it was covered be the belt buckle. I cut out the zipper, belt loops, and pockets using my pastry cutter. I used my small round fondant tool to create the appearance of seams around all of the jean pieces. I created the buttons and the buckle in fondant and sprayed with edible silver spray paint. The star was made by using a large cookie cutter and the horseshoes were with the pastry cutter and used the fondant tools to create the nail holes. For the rope I rolled out two very long rope and twisted the two together. The handkerchief was made from rolling a think piece of fondant and cutting into a triangle shape and giving the look that it was knotted. All of the flowers were created by using a fondant flower punch out and divot with a large round fondant tool and a sponge. It took about an hour to decorate it and turned out better than I could have hoped for! Hee-Haw!
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side.
