i created an invitaton for two cute little cowgirls a couple of weeks ago, and this weekend, i got to bake the cakes, too. cowboy boots are perfectly pretty in pink! each one is cut out of a 9 x 13 cake using a hand drawn template, flipped so the boots faced different directions. to please the crowd, one cake is chocolate, the other yellow. brown iced heels, "stitching" in a slightly darker pink, and their names as a white center seam were the perfect design details.
pink, brown and white had been the color scheme for our invitation, which is why we chose them for the cakes. the idea for the invites came from playbill type notices, focusing on a cool western font that is as much the illustration as the text. to add interest, i pulled in two complimentary text fonts and another dingbat font for the fleurishes. i've said it before many times, but this invite is proof of the fact that i'm a total font junkie!!
