horse cake

i was asked to make a cake for a 90 year old lady who loves bingo and a flutter on the horses so this is what i made
i baked a 10" maderia cake when cooled i sliced it in half and filled with butter cream and jam and sandwiched together then i skimmed all over with butter cream and put in fridge for 30min to cool.
1 rolled out 1kg of icing big enough to cover the cake then smoothed over the cake and cut off excess icing. then i iced round the top and bottom edge of the cake, this was then put aside while the horse was made
i looked up pic's of horses on the net so i knew the shapes i had to make for the legs. i used flower paste which sets hard to make the horse, first i coloured this icing brown, then made the shape for the horses body and head in one and left to set, then i made the shapes for the back and front legs. then in white flower paste i made the fence the horse is jumping over i left all these to set till the following day. using a little icing i attached the legs to the horse and the fence to the cake,i then coloured the fence with green and brown food colouring. when the legs were set on the horse i attached to the cake, i then made the bingo ticket made out of icing and cut out the numbers and the name and attached to the cake finally added a ribbon

This is made from 2 batches of cake. The chocolate is made from the recipe on the back of the Hershey Cocoa can. It is a very moist cake. The strawberry is made from Betty Crocker mix. The cake part is 3 layers of rounds: chocolate, strawberry, chocolate. I colored some buttercream icing for the whole cake, edged it with 2 colors of pink M&M's I got from Candy Craze, and put sprinkles all over. The flowers are fake ones I got from the Dollar Store.

The cupcakes are made from half of the batch of strawberry cake mix. I decorated them while they were still in the muffin pan. I piped on the icing with a very large round tip, then stuck the flowers in just a few and M&M's on some to look like flowers.

I had to take the whole thing to the party which was across town. I transported the cupcakes in the muffin pan then assembled the whole thing when I got there. They're just resting on the top of the cake.

You could probably use this for other events besides a birthday. This could work for a baby shower or bridal shower.

Homemade Crown Baby Shower Cake

by Sara M.
(Lawrenceville, Ga.)


the inside slice of the cake

I made this cake for my best friends baby shower that was prince themed. The cake pan is the wilton crown pan and its a 3 layer white cake. I used 2 boxes of mixes and seperated them into 3 bowls... i started with a very small amount of wilton blue gel food color. Its important to use gel or the liquid will change the consistency of the cake. I iced each layer of the cake with buttercream icing i dyed blue. The decoration part is buttercream icing i dyed yellow, blue and green and piped it all with the star tip. I wrote on it "a new lil prince" the P is filled with candy pearls and the outline of the letters were done with a plain ribbon tip. I really enjoyed making this, it was soooo fun and i know this will be an excellent center piece at the shower . Just hope she likes this as much as i do!!!!!! :)
