This is an Appaloosa horse cake made for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday. She requested Horseland, but I thought the Horseland characters and horses weren't as cute as this. Her mom did buy the Horseland pics to add to the cake.
The horse's body was made using the Wilton 3D Rubber Duck pan. I cut off some of the ducky tail, and added a muzzle full of frosting. The buttercream frosting was all piped with a star tip, except that the mane and tail were piped using a hole tip. The ears were fondant held onto the cake with toothpicks.
The purple halter and bow on tail were also piped with a star tip. I used the grass tip for the ground. The horse's eyes were Junior Mint candies. I used Wilton's candy melts to make lollipops to put all around the cake.
The horse sits on 2 tiers of cake, simply because of the number of guests it had to serve.
I didn't have a lot of time for making cakes for my daughter's 5th birthday and so I came here for ideas but nothing stuck. I searched the net and came across a site with an easy to make horse cake and these are what came out of it.
You need just 4 round cakes and the site had a cut out that you could print to use if you needed. Easy and fun to put together. I used Juniors mints for eyes and nose. I usually use butter cream frosting which does well in heat and my daughters birthday is in July. These two little cakes are supposed to resemble a couple of our real horses.
Once again, my cakes turned out to be a hit and for something like this which is super easy, it says so much more than a cake pan cake. My girl loved it! Again, a great place to come and see what everyone else is doing and share what I've created.
It is hard to make an adult birthday cake themed with horses, but this Dressage Horse Birthday Cake is what I came up with after browsing eBay horsey toys section ( i had several months to create this cake ).
It is from normal 11 x 13 Pyrex casserole pans, two to be exact with frosting layer in between. The frosting is all buttercream with light brown sugar representing the arena sand. The dressage arena markers are sugar cubes with letters piped on with small tip and then refrigerated laying on their sides to set.
Most of the horsey items were purchased on eBay Breyer horse toys etc. It was a huge hit with the recipient and quite a surprise, she could hardly bring herself to cut it and eat it. I would have to agree, it took me some time and turned out really pretty! Thanks for looking.

This girlie Horse head cake is a request from a friend for her daughter's birthday. A vanilla sponge with butter cream and jam filling. A 10" square cut to a template with dips cut for neck, cheek , nose and face then a crumb coat and layer of chocolate fondant icing.
I used chocolate butter cream to pipe the mane round the edge then added the flowers which were cut previously and topped with a sugar pearl center each. After this I made the ear and eye. Attached them with butter cream and the bow before layering a bit more "hair"" and extra flowers. The bridle and reins are 3 lilac icing strips attached with water and covered over with extra mane and flowers then little rosette details to finish.
I was really pleased with the finished cake, especially the shaping of it. Whose a pretty pony then?
