Cake with horse motif

Cake with horse motif in rolled fondant

Since we moved, my daughter have found a new activity instead of the ballet classes she took while we lived in Copenhagen. Horses!

The local riding school is located just down the road from where we live and last weekend, we were invited to a little social gathering with the rest of my daughters riding team. I could not think of any better idea than to bring a cake with a horse motif.

The cake was the chocolate chip cake that I have posted about earlier this month and it was layered with chocolate ganache. The horse motif was cut out of rolled fondant icing and the mane is piped with royal icing. The small pink flowers gave the cake a sweet girlie touch.

All the girls loved it!

Happy Caking!

    Wow, you are a true artist. When I read horse cake I kind of went ut-oh in my head but as usual your work is exquisite!! You give a new level to theme cakes.

    You draw beautifully! not sure if mine would turn out like this :-(
    Haven’t really thought of having flowers around a horse…but it looks beautiful!

    Louise, this is a fantastic good idea for a horse motif. I have made a few horse cakes, and I really don’t like modelling the horses. I like the idea of the “flat” motif. I am so happy to hear that your daugther have found such new good friends and hobby at your new location.

    Beautiful – very.
    What cutter did you use for the flowers – all of mines are either rounder og sharper?

      If you click on the “pink flowers” it will take you to a tutorial with more information on the cutters.
