I am having a cowboy themed birthday for my son in a few weeks. He wants a cowboy boot shaped cake. I figured, not a problem. My picture perfect cake is a 2 layer cake with fresh fruit in the middle, shaped like a boot, and I am thinking I would need to use like a brown fondant to cover the cake, and then decorate it to make it look like an authentic boot.
What kind of pan?
I dont think using a regular 9 x 11 pan is big enough, I thought I could use a sheet pan, make 2 or maybe 3 (depending on how tall each layer would be) layer, stack them with the fruit and frosting in between. Take my printed cut out of the boot, and trim to get the shape.
Is fondant what I want to use or should I use chocolate frosting?
Do they make a brown fondant? if not how do I get it brown.
Do I use frosting under the fondant?
I think thats all I have for now.
If anyone has any ideas for making this cake awesome, I am open any and all idea.
Oooh, what about a spur for the boot? or some other silver work? I've read several posts on here about luster or something that makes things look silver.
Best of luck with the cake, look forward to seeing the picture.
