I made this Western Saddle Cake for a little girl who was getting a leopard saddle for her 9th birthday. I made a white square and round cakes and stacked them.
Bale of hay was made from rice krispie treats, cut to size. I used the grass tip to put the hay details on.
Saddle was hand made from fondant and hand painted with frosting color mixed with Vodka (Vodka makes it dry faster). After the saddle was created I layed it over a cup that was laying down to hold the shape until it dried. Rope on saddle was piped on with colored buttercream frosting.
The leapord spots are just created by making U shapes and filling in with brown color.
