YEEHAW! This cake has been such a ball to make AND to hear all the lovely comments about it! The crown of the hat and the lasso tier are both cake and the brim of the hat and buckle are gumpaste. I extruded 3 pipes of fondant and then, twisted together to form the lasso. The beautiful board was accomplished using Ciccio Cakes, fantastic tooled leather tutorial. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share and hope you all like it!
