I have a client I am making a western theme wedding cake for. The picture they want thier cake to be like has a tier separator that looks like 4 little cowboy boots. Has anyone seen these anywhere for sale or anyone have ideas on how I could make them or create the effect? They would also be happy with some that look like cowboy hats. Thanks!

I saw a cake on here a long time ago with boots inbetween, not sure if it was this exact picture but looks close, anyway she posted saying she made the seperators. Bought the boots at like hobby lobby/dollar general and glued them to a plate or something like that. Hopefully someone will post that knows for sure. Love this cake, good luck.

I was thinking you can model the boots over hidden pillars. HTH

This is what I was thinking. Just model them, leaving a hole in the bottom for the pillar to go through. There maybe a boot pattern on here somewhere. I'll see if I can help you look....

That cake is beautiful.
We have a Western clothing and boot store here that sells gift items. They have similar boots that are for home decoration.
I am wondering if the bottoms could be drilled out to make way for the hidden pillars. I guess it would depend on what they are made of, whether it would cause them to crack.
I was thinking that something very close to that cake is in one of my cake magazines. After I get back from lunch I will check for you. If so, maybe she included the directions.

Well, so far I have not been able to find the cowboy cake in my magazines.
I did find an ICES article on Carolyn Wanke who makes the most fantastic, real looking cowboy boots. (Like the pair next to the large cake.) I had been wanting to contact her about her cowboy boot kit and instructions for such a long time, and so I was really excited to find the article. I emailed her this afternoon for information. The kit has everything you can imagine to make the boots.
The complete kit is $225.00.

I will let you know if I run across that picture.

Well, I just found a cowboy cake that has similar elements here on Cake Central.
The member that did the cake was Iseely1979.
She really did a nice job on it. It is under wedding cakes. I should have looked for the key words. Today has been one forgetful thing after another.

I went to Galleries and clicked the galleries search button. I typed in Western Weddings. When I was looking, it was on the next to the last row, in the middle. I noticed another one with very similar boots on the same row.
What do you think?

Those are VERY similar, look great. I may do some more looking for some boot figurines I could use that way in the next few days. Haven't had any luck so far. And I may do some experimenting to see if I can model one. I haven't done much modeling, but it might be worth a try. Thank you so much for all your help! This order is a little last minute, so I am rushing and a little nervous. Thanks.

You are going to do a great job. Don't forget to post your pictures. It is always fun to see the wonderful outcomes.

I will be sure to post it when its all done. Thanks again!

I remember someone saying that the cowboy boot separators were ceramic pencil holders that the bride had found. The cake decorator put the columns inside the boots. I can't remember who it was.

Here is the cake I saw in the gallery by Iseely1979

Thank you!

Maybe you can use this and just use gumpaste and fondant instead of wax....
