My sons opted to have a joint birthday celebration with a Western Bull Riding theme. They even had mechanical bulls to ride at the party.
I created this cake after searching the internet for inspiration. They each had their own individual round cake, topped with fondant accessories. Jake had a cowboy hat, and Josh a cowboy boot.
I designed with center to look like a belt buckle, with their age as the center of the buckle. All created from fondant.
The sheet cake was with icing, with a picture of a bull that was cut from fondant.
To complete the western theme of the party, I displayed the cakes on burlap covered cake stands.
The cake was a huge success, and very yummy! If you have never used fondant before, I would recommend practicing with play dough some before cake time. It will take the stress out of cake process before party.
