I'm making a jack-o-lantern ccc for a 4-5 year old preschool class. The room mom asked if I could make it seem western, she's decided to use that theme for the party. Maybe I could find some cowboy themed gift wrap paper to cover the cake board (boring thumbsdown.gif ) but other than that I'm drawing a blank icon_confused.gif
Any suggestions?

How about a cowboy hat on top and a fondant lasso around it? icon_biggrin.gif

Enjoy your day!

Forgive me--I don't know what CCC is an abbreviation for! If it's a cake you're making, I'd just make a little cowboy hat out of gumpaste. It doesn't have to be the size of the jack-o-lantern, but just a little one to sit on his head. I'd tie a bandana around the base of the pumpkin, too. Have fun. Post your photo when you're done so we can see what you did!

ccc=cupcake cake, so it will be flat-like a single layer round only pumpkin shaped
I just remembered seeing a black and white bandana at Walmart...maybe I'll use that to cover the board...what do you think?
