Homemade  Horse Birthday Cake Design

Homemade Horse Birthday Cake Design

My daughter wanted a "full horse" cake for her 8th birthday. I tried to lead her to the cute, and easy looking, horse head cakes I have seen on here...but no...she wanted to whole Horse Birthday Cake Design! So I searched online for a very simple coloring page image of a horse to use as a template, printed it out, enlarged it to fit my pan and cut out the shape. I then cut around the shape ( and went a bit wide to allow for maximum cake to serve later). I crumb coated with butercream and then I mixed store bought chocolate and vanilla frosting to make the brown for the horse, regular dark chocolate frosting for the hooves, mane and tail. I used a star tip for the mane and tail and a little black and glitter frosting for the "highlights." Oh, and a Junior mint served as the eye!

Love it!

I have done a horse cake for my daughters birthday the past 2 years. She is turning 10 and wants another one. Before your cake I had not seen a full horse body cake that I liked. Would love to try and duplicate this though I'm not sure I can! Did you use a 9x13 pan and how did you get it to come out in one piece (flour, wax paper, etc.)? And once you cut around the outline, did you just freehand the rest? I'm very thankful for any more info you can give me!
God bless,
Jacqueline

My daughter loves horses and this year I decided to try and make her a Horse Birthday Cake Idea. I combined lots of ideas I found from other cakes on this site.

I started by making (2) 9x13 chocolate cakes and cut each cake to make the horse. The frosting was fudge from a can and to make the hair I added coconut to give it some texture and then sprayed it with black food coloring spray. The nostril and eye were a junior mint and the mouth was a piece of black licorice cut thin. For the background of the cake I just thinly frosted the cardboard and sprayed the leftover coconut with green food coloring spray and patted that over the frosting to look like grass.

My daughter loved it and I can't wait to do another one next year!

This Horse Birthday Cake Idea was made for a friend's daughter's second birthday. We began with a vanilla slab cake as the base and then a chocolate cake for the spiral cake part. We then put graham crackers around the sides of the spiral cake to make it look like dirt.

The horses were made using modeling both white and brown modeling chocolate. The hair, eyes and tails were applied using a basic icing mixture.

The flowers and fence were created using sugar paste and inserted into the fondant by creating little holes for the fence posts.

The sign was made with sugar paste as well and written on using an edible marker.

I made this Homemade Horse Birthday Cake Design for a little friend who loves horses! It was my first time trying to make my own fondant and I found out how easy it was to make and work with. I covered the entire top layer with fondant and tried to make it look a little like a Topsy turvy cake. The rest is just covered in buttercream.

The horses and the "I heart horses" and the fence are also made of fondant. To add detail to the horses I just used a clean paint brush and dipped it into my gel food coloring and water.

For this Horse Birthday Cake Design I traced a picture of a horse head, baked 2 12x 14 sponge cakes and cut out the shape. I then put some pieces of sponge on the cake to make the raised features of the horses head and covered it in chocolate fondant icing . I used a jelly bean for its eye.

My daughter wanted a horse for her cake so we searched the internet for a nice picture (which I can't find anymore) and I freehand drew it on the cake.

This Horse Bust Birthday Cake is only my wife and my third custom cake, so we're lucky it looked as nice as it does.
