COWBOY CAKE

This cake was for two little boys and they were having a cowboy themed birthday party. I borrowed a cowboy hat from my friend Laura of Paleo Women http://www.paleowomen.com/ to use as a model for the hat. Just in case you haven't tried Laura's Paleo Women granolas and cookies you should order some. They are delicious and very healthy.
The flavors of this cake were chocolate and raspberry. I spread seedless raspberry jam onto chocolate cake then top it with raspberry buttercream. This type of cake does not have to be refrigerated so can sit out on the table during the party with no problem. If there is any leftovers I would refrigerate the cake covered just to keep it as fresh as possible.
I put a little heart at the back of the hat and one of the birthday boys saw it right away. That made my day.

I'm not a fan of things that are "cowboy" theme, but that is the cutest thing I've seen, and I've possibly changed my mind about that theme. :) Great job!! :)
