Nevermind that we have a puppy cake pan, a heart cake pan, a castle cake pan, a bunny cake pan....
I had a request for a horse cake from my dear little Cecilia for her seventh birthday (which she would share with her little brother since his is 2 days earlier).
A quick google search for ideas included many odd looking horse heads, some cakes made with specially molded horse pans, and some rectangle cakes featuring a horse in a field of some sort.
I decided to ask which she preferred. She looked at the various pictures and declared that she wanted a horse in a field...with a LAKE.
So I thought and brainstormed...and brainstormed some more.
I know! She'd be getting a cowboy and his cow-family and a bunch of horses for her doll-city. I could figure out a way to put one or more on the cake!
I made a large, but thin cake. You cake people know what this is called--quarter sheet? I also made the heart cake...which I cut up for hills.
We frosted and sprinkled and sprinkled and sprinkled.
Then we set up the table and began placement of gifts. Cecilia was whisked away for this part.
Success is a HAPPY birthday girl!!
They had a great time doing this. Maybe other moms whose dear daughters ask for a horse cake can benefit from our brainicanes.
Happy birthdays to all.
