Cowboy Wedding Cake

My sweet, totally beautiful and amazing cousin Casi got married this weekend and asked me to do her wedding cake! It was a lot of fun because it was a western cake complete with cowboy and cowgirl silhouettes and horseshoes around it! It also tasted pretty darn good with an Almond Sour Cream White Cake and Vanilla Almond whipped filling!My littlest sister was my hero when she stayed up with me until 2 and carefully cut out the silhouettes and then dusted the accents with bronzing dust! (Thanks Velv!) My husband was also amazing as always and stepped in to knead some of the fondant when I could not bare touching the powder sugar anymore so thanks again Toph! I was trying not to cry when after driving 3 hours (and Utah roads are NEVER bumpy . . .) to the reception we discovered that the fondant had started to slide on the top 2 layers . . . my aunt reminded me that this even happens on Ace of Cakes . . . but still I wanted it to be perfect but everyone was so nice and complimentary and the reception was darling and all who attended from our clan had a great time and thoroughly loved watching Casi and Jake and seeing how happy they were! Congrats again!Thanks you two for including all of "the Parry girls" so much and Teri and Dave you two are awesome and a day and have a great son in law to add to the Christensen clan! We were thrilled to share this happy occasion with you all and look forward to many more!!!
Vanilla Almond Filling

1 Large Package Instant Vanilla Pudding
1/2-1 tsp Almond Extract
1 8 oz carton Cool Whip
1 Cup Milk

Whisk the pudding, milk and almond extract together in a bowl until all the lumps are out. Fold in the whipping cream and chill until use. Enjoy!

(This filling is so delish!)

I found this cake through a google search. You did a fantastic job and it is very similar to the style we would like to have for our wedding. Also you look very familiar. Would you be from Kansas by chance? Where are you located? Please email me at brunakr@hotmail.com
