Homemade Horses Cake

For the last few years, I've been making cakes for my sons' birthdays. This year, my niece asked if I would please make her birthday cake so I agreed. She only got to pick the kind of batter. My inspiration for a horses cake was her love of horses!

She got to invite some friends to go horseback riding, then back to her house for a slumber party. So, instead of it saying happy birthday, I thought it would be cute to say happy trails! Everything except for the horses and bridge are edible. The stalls are rice krispy treats; pumpkins are jelly candies (her party was in Oct. so they were available), trees are large spearmint leaf shaped spice drops on pretzel sticks, shrubs are small spearmint leaf spice drops. The trail was made from graham cracker crumbs, fence out of chocolate licorice, and mini candy bars used for bails of hay. Loose hay was toasted coconut.

She and her friends loved it! The toughest part was transporting the cake. I wanted it to be extra-special for her so I purchased the box, etc. from a cake supply, not realizing the fancy paper would slide around in the box since I didn't glue it down to the cake board (they usually don't leave my house so it's never been an issue). Also, the box wasn't quite tall enough so I had to tape it in a way that the box couldn't smash the horses legs all the way down into the cake. I haven't taken any classes, so I learn a bit from every cake I do.

Pony Birthday Cake

Pony Birthday Cake

This is a Pony birthday cake that l made for my daughter's 5th birthday. She loves ponies, it was just a basic mud cake and iced normally and then decorated and the pony picture l scanned out of one of her colouring books and made it to the size that l wanted for the cake and pin pricked it on then using butter frosting.

I piped it on to the cake and let it set a bit and textured it with a straw and for the eye and heart they are drawn free hand and l covered them in clear contact and put them on to the cake. Put on before it was time to sing "Happy Birthday"

This Maximus Horse Cake is for a birthday girl who is a lover of Maximus horse in Rapunzel.

I tried to copy Maximus in form of a cake. A miracle occurred: the expression of the horse and the emotion of the girl transformed the cake into something alive!

See it!

I made this cake for my son's first birthday. Being Ohio State fans, I had to do the Horseshoe cake.

I used a stadium cake pan for the top. The field goals were made from gumpaste and the field, flags, and letters were made from fondant.
