I used to have a birthday blog but then this blog took off and the domain of the birthday blog got stolen, so I shut it down. I am transferring the cake tutorials here :)
The Cowboy Boot Cake
This started out a 9×13 cake. I free handed this one but you could easily make a pattern out of paper to help you carve. I did something with this cake I haven’t ever done before. I wanted it to look like leather so after I crumb coated it, I stuck it in the freezer for a long time. Then I frosted it. Because it was extra cold it froze the frosting as I was putting it on and I was able to get it really flat and smooth. I stuck it in the freezer again for a little bit and smoothed it out even more. I really liked the affect!
