Here's my take on a cowgirl cake made with buttercream.
I made a 3 layer, 10 inch, bottom cake and frosted it (smooth) in pink buttercream. Then I piped on black and white paisley designs to look like a bandanna. I made a separate 3 tier, 6 inch cake and frosted it in white buttercream. Then I used canned chocolate frosting to make the cow spots. Before frosting the cakes I added a little homemade simple syrup to each layer to keep it moist. I also used my candy molds to make pink and white chocolate boots to place around the cake.
