Little Cowgirl Cake

As a mom of two boys, I always love the chance to make a frilly girly cake.

This cake had girly written all over it!

The cake was made for a little girl’s 1st birthday with a purple cowgirl theme!  Love it!

The birthday girl’s mom asked that the top tier be a smash cake, so I decided to go fondant free on the top layer and throw in a whole bunch of delicate ruffles!

Flavorwise, the top two tiers were banana cake with chocolate filling and the bottom tier was dairy-free chocolate cake with banana filling.  Since the bottom layer was dairy-free, the banana filling was simply my basic butter cream with ½ teaspoon of banana extract! 

I loved having the flavors of each tier mimic one another!

The ruffled top tier was again, purple buttercream.  The bottom two layers used MM Fondant, with the roping & cow print made of chocolateMM Fondant.
