This cake was so fun to make! It was a chocolate cake with buttercream. The star is peanut butter candy pieces that I melted down, added yellow food coloring, poured into a Martha Stewart's huge copper cookie cutter & sprinkled with gold luster dust. The horseshoe is chocolate chips melted in the microwave, poured into the shape of a horseshoe, refrigerated, then carved to shape. To give it a rustic look, I dusted it with cocoa. And the rope is fondant.
