Leather Cowboy Hat

This is my very first cowboy hat! I had so much fun making this cake, I can't wait to do another. The brim is made from gumpaste and fondant (2:1 ration), lightly colored brown, then rubbed with cocoa powder. I set a fan in front of it and dried it for 36 hours. There are three carved 9" round cakes under the fondant crown. I also colored the fondant brown, and rubbed with cocoa powder. The trim hat band is a store-bought braided trim.

What an amazing hat!! It looks so real....the coco powder was a neat little trick to make it look more realistic.
