I used a horse silhouette and cut it out then made a basic sponge cake and placed the silhouette on top and cut the shape from that. I then put butter cream in the middle and crumb coated it also in this. I used ready to roll chocolate icing for the covering and white ready to roll icing to make the head collar.
I then used writing icing to do the noses and eyelashes and the diamond brow band. I used a white chocolate button for the eye and a marshmallow twirler for the lead rope.
I made this Horse Head cake for a girl at the farm where my daughter keeps her horse and she loved it.
