I made this Cowboy Birthday Cake for our state fair competition in August. I got the idea from other pictures on this site and others. I used fondant to cover the cakes, and fondant to sculpt the cowboy and horse. I piped the bandanna with black and white Wilton’s recipe icing.
I braided fondant and wrapped it around the cakes to look like rope. All and all I think it turned out pretty good and ended up with a first place ribbon at the fair!
