I made this cake for my grandson, Peyton, who just turned one. Thus, the huge "1"!
I used pre-whipped butter cream from Sam's to frost the cakes. The cow print, belt, rope, belt buckle and star are all made of fondant. The belt buckle was a bit heavy, so I had to resort to toothpicks to hold it up! I used a bandana to cover the cake board, which is too small. I know!! But I have three or four cake boards out, so I didn't have the size I needed. I'm going to have to chase them down or get my hubby to make me some more.
The "1" is a large decorated cookie. I made it extra thick, and as soon I took it out of the oven, I inserted a loli-pop stick through the middle of it about half way up. After it cooled, it was anchored in there pretty good. I did use a dowel rod behind the cookie for support. It didn't really need it, but with a bunch of rambunctious kids constantly knocking the table, I decided we needed the extra stabilization!!
And here's the cute Birthday Boy with his daddy! He wasn't quite sure why he was the star of the show, but it didn't take him long to start playing the part!!
Happy Birthday, Peyton!!
