Cowboy cake

April 12, 2011

The brief for this cake was ‘something cowboy themed’ and it was great fun to work on. The cake was a 3 layer vanilla sponge filled with strawberry jam and vanilla buttercream. I covered the whole cake in white sugar paste then added a band of blue for the jeans, brown for the belt and a yellow star for the belt buckle. The little cowboy hat was modelled out of chocolate fondant. To give the hat brim some shape I cut the inner tube of a kitchen roll in half, covered it with greasproof paper and left the hat brim inside to set in the right shape overnight. Then I added the light brown rope details. The cow print splodges were hand-cut and attached with edible glue.

I hope Helen enjoyed her birthday party and her cake!
