Cowboy Themed Birthday Cake (1603)
Every year, starting with Russell’s 3rd birthday, we’ve had the honor of creating his birthday cake. When he turned three we created this dump truck cake, and last year we created this lizard cake. This year it’s Andrew’s turn! His mom asked us to do a cowboy theme. She brought in a photo from another cake designer and asked if we could use it for inspiration in designing the cowboy themed birthday cake. (I’m not sure who the original designer is, so if anyone knows please let us know so we can give appropriate credit for the inspiration.)
The top tier of the cake includes a 3d cowboy hat with a glittered red number “1” and a pair of medallions on either side. The top tier of the cake is covered with black cow print fondant and the base includes fondant roping. The bottom tier is covered in light blue fondant with a western landscape theme which includes hills, cactus, rocks and a cowboy and horse. Flavors included red velvet cake with cream cheese and extra moist marble cake with oreo and chocolate buttercream.
Happy Birthday Andrew!
