Cowboy Hat

Cowboy Hat on Cake Central

This was one of two cakes I entered at my local fair (first competition ever). I entered this in the novelty cake division and it took 1st place! I didn't get a picture before wrapping it to take to the fair.

Wow! What a terrific cake. I have been trying my hand at sculptured cakes and have had to rely on looking at the picture only. When convenient, I would love to have the directions as well. You did an awesome job. [email protected]

i am going to submit directions and Jackie is going to post them for me. I will do that in the next day or so I promise. I've been home with my son that has been i'll. I will make a tutorial on the next cowboy hat I make and then Jackie will replace the instructions with the tutorial.

I think I have e-mailed the directions to everyone that asked for them. If not - let me know. Jackie is going to post the instructions as soon as she can and I will demo the cake on the next one I make.

I have to say that this is one of the most amazing cakes I have ever seen! I love the 'stamp work' on the hatband and the curve of the brim is fantastic. You are truely an artist. ;-D

my good gosh--hasn't it been added to a tutorial somewhere. By my accounts you've been sending instructions for about a year and a half now! I just did a hat 2 weeks ago and really struggled I'd like your secrets if you're up to sending them yet again. I had real difficulty with the crown--you on the other hand did an outstanding job and deserved the first place ribbon. [email protected] THANKS!

I wouldn't have believed that this is actually a cake ! It looks so real . My father has one just like it. Could you please send me the hat instructions? I would like to make one for his 70th birthday. Thanks for sharing your secrets. [email protected]

You are so gracious to e-mail instructions for your unbelievable cowboy hat cake. My cake making skills are probably insufficient, but I would love to have the instructions. I will understand if you are tired of sending them. :cowboy: [email protected]

I'm currently working on a step by step tutorial - unless you need this immediately please wait until the tutorial is posted. Thanks!

on

you poor girl...you have got to have carpel tunnel from all those e-mails. Can't wait for the tutorial...well I can wait and that is why I am not requesting. Thanks :) :)

on

Now, I didn't take time to read all the comments.. What struck me most about you hat cake is how realistic it is. You know they DO have those plastic rain covers for the dressier hats

on

I would love to have step-by step instruction on how you did it. I'll wait for the tutorial. You deserved to win first place hands down, even though I haven't seen any of the other cakes, this cake is awesome. And besides you are thecakemaker.

This is the BEST JOB on a cowboy hat I have ever seen!!! I know you must be so proud of your work....You should be!!!

what a cake, my son just walked up behind me and asked if that was a cake, then he went on to say "well mum i thouht you were good, i would really like to know if you used fontant on the top of the hat, and if so how did you get it done so well. thanks cheers kirstyfrom aussie

on

Thank you again! Yes, the top of the hat is fondant over cake. I carved the cake then covered with fondant. I used a grapefruit spoon to spoon out the sides and a knife on the top. There are step by step instructions for a cowboy hat on CC in articles.

Hey! I love this cake!! Would you please send me the directions for it? I'd love to make it for my boyfriend thank you! X
