I made this Pony cake for my daughter’s 6th birthday party. She loves horses and so we did a cowgirl theme. I tried to match the colors of the cake details to the decorations. My husband contributed by making me a template which I then traced onto the cake. I have extra large cookie sheets that make perfectly flat cake.

I used two 18×13 cookie sheets for this cake (one boxed cake mix for each sheet pan). After the cake cooled, I then used the templates and positioned on the cake board. For height I made this a double layer. I even had a small amount of scraps left after cutting the shape.

I frosted the cake (two tubs of reg store bought) and added detail with fondant. The fondant is best when you want a smooth look. It was awesome and my daughter loved it! I think after all the time was added it took me a little over 4 hours to complete.
