This was a 2-layer 16" square iced with buttercream and covered with a fondant bandana that was all hand-piped with royal icing or with edible marker. On top of it was a 2-layer oval cake for the cowboy hat, covered with fondant. It was made blue to match the birthday boy's blue hat. I hated that this cake had the "bulge" between the layers! I usually don't get that, but this cake just kept settling! The pieces around the cake are made of fondant and were either hand-cut or hand-molded and colored with edible markers. The skull was candy clay and I had a mold for that.
