I made this pink pony Homemade Girls Carousel Cake for my daughter’s third birthday. I purchased the plain craft wood horses from a craft store and then gave them a couple of coats of white non-toxic acrylic paint, let them dry and then got to work with my glue gun some felt and a little bit of fine chain to fashion the saddles and bridles.
The cake itself was constructed using a two round white chocolate mud cakes baked from scratch and one smaller cake to shape for the very top of the carousel. The horses were attached to cut down balloon sticks and the carousel roof was supported with a centre cylinder to which I hot glued the top cake board.
The cake was iced using a basic marshmallow fondant tinted pink and decorated with some iced piping, ribbons, diamontes and sparkly pipecleaners around the centre support and balloon sticks and then topped off with a jazzed up diamonte candle!
Quite straight forward but with lots of WOW factor… my little girl loved it and I hope you do too!
