Q&A with C Brock

Di Hovde asked:
Job well done. Where did you get the mold for the Belt Buckle? And were the horse shoes does free hand?
C Brock answered:
The horseshoes are free hand and so is most of the buckle. I used a scrapbooking embosser to get the design on the buckle. After I painted with luster dust I cut out the monogram and glued it to the buckle. I used a gumpaste tool to edge the belt buckle. It was not hard after I decided on the design.
DebRowbottom asked:
Very cool..I just started working with fondant and gumpaste and am hooked. I am a Western Girl as well..so this was right up my Barn lane...I have seen lots of Western Cakes but haven't yet made one. Did a Wedding Cake on the weekend with Horseshoes..but cheated..I have a mold. But I did welded Horseshoes together for the stand. Your cake is BEAUTIFUL...Congrats.
C Brock answered:
Thanks so much! This is my second wedding cake that I did a couple of years ago just a couple of months after I started decorating. I love cake decorating and working with fondant and gumpaste as well. I am always looking for something new to learn about decorating!
