Wild West Theme cake

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am searching for a wild west themed cake that is not a cowboy hat or a boots. I am looking for an idea that incorporates all elements of the wildwest in a fun, baby-ish way for my 1 yr olds wild west theme birthday! Please help!!!

OK, this is not exactly what you want, but there is a really cute cake that I really like. Go to Galleries, click on the Search button, and put in cowboy. the cake is brown with a cowboy, rope, cactus. Just a neat cake that might give you something to start with. Hope this helps. The cake was done by montanakate.

Stanley (from the disney channel) did a wild west episode (Stanley's Dinosaur Roundup). Perhaps there is a picture of him on a horse or something similar you could do. That might be good for a 1-year old.

I do not know how to paste a link, but try "cactus" under search in the galleries. There are only a few, and you should see the one I am talking about. It is in the bottom row.

Being that he's 1 yr old, why don't you make him a barn yard theme. you can make the cake to look like a barn and put animals around it with fences. This type of cake is very kid friendly. Let me know if this help

I did a wild west party for my son's 3rd birthday. I made "WANTED" posters on the computer (old paper looking background and black and white picture of him wearing his cowboy outfit & hat making a mean face) and burned them all around the edges and posted them all around the house inside and out. I had his 'stats' all listed...height, weight, eye color, etc. Even gave him an outlaw name....Isaac "Smarty Pants" Thompson...lol. Everyone got a big kick out of it, especially the bday boy. I know that isn't a cake idea, specifically, but I thought it could maybe spur (no pun intended...lol) some ideas for you. You could make a wanted poster of the boys and then have an edible image made or something? Google 'wanted posters'....it'll bring up lots of different kinds, real and fake ones, old and new ones. Hope that helped some... icon_redface.gif


****edited to add: the pic of the little boy is NOT mine...these are both examples I found on-line. I should have noted that before...sorry for any confusion it may have caused. icon_redface.gif

Thanks much for posting the link. It's such a cute cake icon_smile.gif Love the cactus.

And the wanted posters are so cool. You did such a good job!

But as mamasota said, trying to incorporate a bran yard theme will make it more 1 yr appropriate. I chose the cowboy theme because my 8 month old is always upto something and has such a mischevious expression, I thought he would make a cute "outlaw" icon_biggrin.gif

But honestly, I am open to other ideas as well.

Yes, that is the cake, gma1956. I think that is really cute. I also did a wanted poster for my son on his 3rd B-day. Very cute.
