This Carousel Child Birthday Cake was fairly simple to construct. I started with two 8″ round cakes and used some wedding pillars to support the 6″ cake top. I iced all of it with pure white buttercream.

My daughter wanted “pink and blue stars with horses!” I searched far and wide for plain horses then painted the flowers on them. I drilled a hole in each horse and used a bamboo skewer and topped them with gumballs. I used curling ribbon attached to another skewer from the center of the cake for support. Then stars and dots to complete her wishes.

This cake actually did not make it to the party without incident. That is why one of the horses appears to be tilted into the cake.
