I don't know why and I didn't ask. :) This is the second year I've made a longhorn for this customer's UT/OU pre-game party. Carved from two 2-layer 10x15's. The head was carved from one cake and each horn was carved from the second cake and placed next to the head. Iced in buttercream, the entire cake was just shy of 3 feet wide and served 100! I also made 100 longhorn sugar cookies.
