It is hard to make an adult birthday cake themed with horses, but this Dressage Horse Birthday Cake is what I came up with after browsing eBay horsey toys section ( i had several months to create this cake ).

It is from normal 11 x 13 Pyrex casserole pans, two to be exact with frosting layer in between. The frosting is all buttercream with light brown sugar representing the arena sand. The dressage arena markers are sugar cubes with letters piped on with small tip and then refrigerated laying on their sides to set.

Most of the horsey items were purchased on eBay Breyer horse toys etc. It was a huge hit with the recipient and quite a surprise, she could hardly bring herself to cut it and eat it. I would have to agree, it took me some time and turned out really pretty! Thanks for looking.
