Cowboy birthday cake

This was a cowboy cake for a three-year-old's birthday party. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. The hat is made with rice krispie treats and marshmallow fondant, and I hope it made its journey safely! I should've mixed gum tex with the fondant to make it dry harder. It started cracking with the weight of the hat brim hanging off the cake. I actually didn't intend to make the hat that big, it just grew on its own! This was a fun cake to make.
