Frost cupcakes in buttercream icing. Put brown rope boarder around each cupcake.
Cut out round 2-in. tan circles for brim of cowboy hat. place on cupcake and turn edge up on either side to shape like a cowboy hat brim. Then I piped tan frosting and molded and smoothed w/ wet finger. You can also shape a piece of fondant, after rolling out like a ball then shaped like top of hat. I piped black trim from BC icing.
For star, cut out yellow star out of fondant or cut out yellow edible paper (1- 1/2 in.). Outline w/ brown or black buttercream. Put black dot on end of each point.
Rocking horse~ roll out brown fondant and cut out rocking horse w/ mini cutter. place on CC, then put black dot for eye.
