My masseuse Gitta was turning 45 and for her birthday she was off on a horse riding adventure in the States! So, what was more appropriate for her birthday than a Cowboy Hat Cake Design!

To make this cake I stacked 2 oval shaped cakes on top of one another and carved the top one down a little on one side to make the slope of the hat. I rolled a 8mm thick circle of RTR with some tylose kneaded through and used a compass drawn circle cut out on baking paper to trim the rolled fondant into a circular brim. I dried this on baking paper with a cake tin resting on the top and a tea-towel wrapped around and tied at the top to create the curve of the brim as it set.

I cut stars and hearts out of white icing and glossed them up with edible glitter and paint to decorate the top part of the hat and when the brim was dry, I put it all together on a cake board using sugar syrup.

This idea came from some Google research and I found a fantastic Step-By-Step instruction page which helped a lot!

Thank you to those cake-lovers who share their experiences and knowledge with people like me!

Homemade Cowboy Boot Cake

Chocolate/coconut boot cake

I made this cowboy boot cake for my dad for his birthday. I actually got the idea for the cake from this site and thought it would be a pretty simple and fun cake to make. I knew that my dad would think it was pretty neat too. I had only made a few shaped cakes before and was a little worried that it might not turn out well. but I did alright. I first took a piece of cardboard and began to draw freehand the shape of a boot. I then cut out the shape I had drawn and placed the cardboard cutout on top of a regular sheet cake that I had pre baked earlier that day made of chocolate from a simple cake mix. I then took a sharp knife and cut along the outside edge of the boot shaped pattern. I then pulled away the excess pieces of cake so that I was left with only the boot shaped cake.I frosted the cake with chocolate frosting and did the edging with coconut frosting. I put some coconut frosting in a plastic ziplock bag and cut a small hole in it to make the spur. My dad thought the cake was really cool and it tasted yummy too!

I made this Cowboy Hat birthday cake with 2 9 inch round cakes. The brim of the cake was made with marshmallow fondant. I had an old hat that my father in law gave my husband and I put plastic wrap over it and rolled out a thin 1/8" round of fondant, and laid the fondant over the hat.

It took two days to semi dry since we live in a very humid area. I needed to use tooth picks to keep the brim curled until time to move the cake. The crown of the hat was carved with the laid cakes covered in same marshmallow fondant.

The hat was a big hit with my father in law.

This is a cowboy boot birthday cake I made for my dad's 50th birthday. The actual boot on top is made out of rice krispies and covered in fondant.

I made it to look like my son's boot. The rest of the cake is just 14' and 12' square cakes covered in fondant. The hardest part was trying to make the cake look like cow print.

How exactly did you make the boot is it solid rice krispies or hollow? Can you give more detail?

I made this Cowboy Boot Birthday Cake for my friend Elisha's 30th birthday. It is covered in fondant and the bottom has black fondant cut outs that I got wet on the back so that it would stick to the white fondant.

The boot is made from rice krispies and covered in fondant. I also added jute around it for more of a "cowboy" effect.
