This is a 3 tier cake that I made for my little boy's, Daniel, 6th birthday. the red tier (10in) is buttercream icing w/ piped icing in a bandana print, the blue tier (8in) is iced in buttercream w/ fondant belt & buckle, the whitle tier (6in) is buttercream w/ black fondant pieces for the cowhide. I did one in black inicng & then decided to use fondant for the rest b/c I hate how black icing stains the mouth! The top has a sheriff badge w/ a number 6 on it made from fondant & the cake is trimmed w/ a fondant rope. My little cowboy LOVED it!
