To make this Horse birthday cake, I found a horse picture online, enlarged it using Paint Shop and printed it off the computer. I then taped the two pieces together for a guideline on tracing it onto the cake.

I used buttercream for the whole cake except for the hair and the bow. I used fondant, tinted brown and yellow. I just cut out the slithers of brown fondant and placed each one on the horse to give the illusion of hair. It turned out great!
