Are you thinking of something like this?


Ok so I don't think I'm capable of cutting and pasting at 3 in the morning... but I did a search with just typing cowboy and there was some really cute cakes!

forgot to mention, i covered the cake board in fondant and marked out wood planks (wood grain) with a pizza cutter, nail holes with a small round frositng tip, and then painted it with brown and vanilla. i put a small white daisy off to one side, and then put a cattlebrand of his initials on the wood. for the initial imprint, i just used a fondant/gumpaste tool and imprinted the letters and then used a small paintbrush to fill it in with black gel color. it was a great finishing touch. you could also line the cake board with royal icing barbed wire...a hankerchief, rope etc... i used rope. one of my favorite cakes!

Someone posted some really cute cowboy boots today and gave the link to a web site for the lady who makes the cowboy boot cutters. She is from Texas and has some awesome Western cake pictures on her site. Maybe they can give you some ideas. Here's the link:

I used the cowboy hat tutorial on the front page of this website under Newest Cake Decorating Articles on the rustic hat I colored my fondant brown and I Covered a cheap cowboy hat that I had bent up the brim. When I shaped it I just shaped it kind of beat up looking ( to be honest I had a picture of me nephew with his hat that he wore all the time and if your nephew like mine the hat has been thought some tough times ) PM me if you have more question. thecakemaker is the org.of these instructions and she's a really big help Good Luck You'll have fun!
