Standing horse cake By mlee000
This is my horse I’ve entered in a local competition, in novice class – as it’s my first year. It took a good 5 days to do, as I was trying to figure everything out as I went. The legs & under tummy is a stainless steel frame and the body, neck & head is cake. I modelled him on a famous racehorse, but he’s maybe a little chubby to be built for speed – I used photos of the real horse and bought a horse magazine for reference. He’s about 10.5 inches long from front to rear legs. First go at airbrushing, which is more scary than what I thought.
By springlakecake I am really happy with the way this turned out. So much so that I am excitedfor the person to pick it up, however, I wish I could keep it here..LOL! Idid this in exchange for a freezer my husband got from a co-worker last year.I was inspired mainly by a cake done by Michelle’s Cakes that I found onher website. I enjoyed looking at many other horse cakes posted here as well.
By Kitagrl My boss and I worked on this one together today. Got the inspiration from Cake Corner.
By torki I was asked (heavily persuaded) to try and make a replica of a horse statue for a display.After a few hiccups….amputation of the first set of legs….This is the finished product…. DH actually confused him for the real statue!!! I’m pretty happy on how he (Harry) turned out.He is made from gumpaste….thanks for looking
By cupadeecakes This cake is based on a design by Ana Beatriz Carrard that I saw on Pinterest. Bandana tier is covered in fondant, belt buckle, horse heads, and cow girl hat was all made from modeling chocolate
By Mac THis cake was sculpted from a 1/4 sheet cake than put on another 1/4 sheet cake. Rice Krispie ears covered in choco-pan. Rest of the cake is all BC.
By kneadacookie These were samples I made for a perspective customer’s bat mitzvah. i’m not a huge horse person, so any comments would be fabulous!! toba’s glace over butter cookies
By SplendorCakes Big credit has to go to Cynthia’s Custom Cakes, whose wonderful handpainted grassy/flower idea I pretty much copied.
By bittle Hand sculpted fondant horses. Used stylofoam and wires for support
By hockeymom I used the “Wilton” horse pan, and marked out the saddle, blankets, straps, etc for the horse, and then piped it in. The carousel pole is a plastic dowel, covered in the gold foil and then stuck into the cake.
By Aedans_Cakes I made this horse cake for a meeting of my local University Equestrian Network. I put it under birthday cakes because I would totally love this cake for my birthday! Its tiers are 4in and 6in. Its chocolate malt cake with vanilla malt buttercream frosting. I now have a whole new respect for people who can get perfectly smooth buttercream!! So melty!! The horses are piped milk and dark chocolate. I think next time I am going to make a rearing horse for the top. Thanks for looking!
By diane706 The horse was 2 ft tall and 2 1/2 feet long! The head and legs were sculpted with RKT and the body and base were cake. The entire horse was covered in and detailed with chocolate fondant The jumps, flowers etc were made from gum paste.
By cdmolina83 Chocolate cake pops in the shape of horse heads. Used candy melts for the manes and hand painted the reins on. TFL!
By laventure Marshmallow fondant covered cake, fondant and icing horse, cinnamon sugar and brown sugar sand, piping gel ocean and water, icing waves and clouds. Fondant sky and ocean painted over white fondant and blotted with paper towel for textured look.
By Kitagrl Last year at Christmas I gave my kids teachers each a certificate for a free round cake, two dozen cupcakes, or two dozen cookies. One of them just now ordered hers LOL. I’m not very patient with cookies and tend not to spend the time it takes to get them perfect, but I think the little girl will like them just fine. I do like doing cookies every once in awhile, but not too often…my wrist doesn’t enjoy alot of piping!
