Homemade Girly Chocolate Horse Cake

Homemade Girly Chocolate Horse Cake

My 2 year old loves chocolate and horses! I've made several 3D cakes (tractor, back-hoe, and combine) for her older brother. I was a little unsure how to delve into the realm of 3D animals, especially since I wanted the cake to taste good! I don't use fondant, only real butter cream or chocolate frosting, and real homemade cake. I looked around this site at the horses, but there were only two 'real-upright' 3D horses. I wasn't ready for that, so I decided I was going to have to come up with a new idea.

I decided to make marshmallow rice-crispies, and while still warm, mold it into a horse. After molding (everything but the tail), I chilled, and dipped it in melted chocolate. I used chocolate almond bark with added chocolate chips for a darker color. By 'dipped', it was more like spooning and smoothing. I let it harden between coats in the fridge. At various times I took a knife to carve off extra bumps, or to add more detail. I then poked a cut off plastic straw (kind with a bend in it) in its rear. Then took some butter cream frosting, added a little chocolate to make a lighter brown color, then piped on details. The tail was longer, but it was accidentally bumped.

For the cake, I used two homemade chocolate 13x9s, and my favorite rich chocolate frosting. Using the chocolate icing, I piped a 'lasso rope' design around the top and bottom edges and added 'horseshoes' around the sides. Using butter cream dyed pink, I personalized the top for my daughter, and added some pink flowers for some girly flair. She LOVED it! And that's what matters!

This horse cake is a practice for my daughter's 2nd birthday. She is getting a liberty horse, so I am planning a horse party. The birthday cake itself will have the true colors of the liberty horse, darker mane and tail, and the yellow around the blanket.

I used a Wilton Carousel Horse cake pan, iced over the carousel pole, outlined the horse, filled the body and accessories in with tip 16, for the mane and tale. I used the grass tip, it worked really good.

This cake was really simple for anyone interested in making a horse or pony party cake. Thanks for looking.

Brown Horse And Mane Cake

Brown Horse And Mane Cake

This horse cake was inspired by other horse cakes on your site. I used the 9x13 rectangle and cut out for neck and ear suggested by Family Fun's website. The frostings are a cocoa based one for the base from Hershey's, and a chocolate glaze with coconut for texture in the mane.

My daughter wanted a wild look without a bridle, but I found a bridle was necessary to make it look like a horse (and not a dog!) The bridle is made from the candies off a candy necklace. The eye and mouth are from colored candy canes. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Rocking Horse

Rocking Horse

I made this horse cake for my niece's 1st birthday. I downloaded the rocking horse picture from Wilton's website and cut the shape on a polystyrene sheet.

I inserted a small piece of cake at the bottom of the horse so that the birthday girl can cut the cake! For the mane and the tail I used the cotton thread.I used a basic butter cream for the icing.

We really enjoyed the birthday party,and everyone loved the cake.

My 6 year old loves horses so this is my 4th horse cake. They keep getting better but hopefully her next will be better yet.

This one is made out of a rectangle cake. Cut out the ear, make a neck line, and trim it to have a nose and back of neck. I used frosting for all of it but I have seen it done with candy accessories.

I used one of the cakes on here as a guideline to to create this homemade horse cake. It's a chocolate cake. I cut the basic shape out with a sharp knife and covered the whole thing in white sugarpaste and then cut the brown bits out of chocolate sugarpaste (which were added at the end).
