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.
