This Cow Birthday Cake was for my friend’s daughter’s birthday. Miss Bailey wanted a cow. This was a new adventure for me but I was up to the challenge.

I started with a 14in round cake and an 8in cake. I cut the 8in down to make the snout and used the remainder as the ears. I used the star tip to cover the cow, using chocolate frosting for the spots to avoid bad tasting coloring. I used the glossy tube of writing gel in black for the eyes, nostrils and mouth to give them the moist look.

It was a big hit. I will keep this in mind for the future.
