Hey guys...just a note..I just did another one. It works best if you do MMF & prepared gumpaste with a 2 to 3 ratio more MMF. My second brim I did out of Wiltons premade......it wouldnt dry and then it broke in a trillion pieces...the MMF + gumpaste worked the best. just FYI...

Don't be so hard on yourself! I've never even tried to make a cake that needs to be shaped/carved, so any of them look fantastic to me! And this is no exception.

Hey! You're off to a great start! The brim cracked on my first one. Wait till the next one - it'll be great!

I think that you did a great job. I did a cowboy hat for the first time too and I dried my brim with a fan for a full day and chilled the cake really well before assembly. I used all fondant and it turned out ok. Keep up the good work.
