Horse Cake

This adorable horse-themed cake was made for an even more adorable little girl, Ashlyn, for her 4th birthday!  Happy birthday, Ashlyn!


I did a complete redesign of this cake at the 11th hour.  I was originally going to do 2-dimensional characters on top, but quickly realized I can sculpt a lot better than I can draw.  A lot.  After 5 attempts at drawing hay onto gumpaste, I gave up, made the design 3d, and had the hay and horse completed in less than 20 minutes.
I think he looks a bit like Elvis.

  1. Leanne this is adorable! Looks like you have a natural talent for sculpting. I remember sculpting with clay as a child... it was so horrible.
