My daughter wanted a “full horse” cake for her 8th birthday. I tried to lead her to the cute, and easy looking, horse head cakes I have seen on here…but no…she wanted to whole Horse Birthday Cake Design! So I searched online for a very simple coloring page image of a horse to use as a template, printed it out, enlarged it to fit my pan and cut out the shape. I then cut around the shape ( and went a bit wide to allow for maximum cake to serve later). I crumb coated with butercream and then I mixed store bought chocolate and vanilla frosting to make the brown for the horse, regular dark chocolate frosting for the hooves, mane and tail. I used a star tip for the mane and tail and a little black and glitter frosting for the “highlights.” Oh, and a Junior mint served as the eye!
