Rodeo Cake

Today was my grandson’s bday party and my daughter asked me to make him a cake that he could smash. I made marshmallow fondant for frosting and it was a pain. I almost gave up but it came out ok in the end I think.

And because he’s adorable and I can’t stop myself:

And here he is enjoying his cake:

This is cute and I’m glad you stuck it out and got the marshmallow fondant done. It looks like he enjoyed it.

Thanks everyone!

What’s really funny is that at first he didn’t know what to do with it! So his dad grabbed his hand and pushed it into the cake. This was his reaction:

Then his mom put a small piece in his mouth. It was happy trails for this lil cowboy after that!

He is adorable in his little cowpoke outfit! I love that the cake matched so nicely. I don’t work with fondant, but I know how tricky it can be. You did a nice job getting it to cooperate!
