Three horses in a stable cake

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi
I am going to try to make this horse stable cake for my daughters birthday. I can't seem to post the image or find a link to post. But it has the stable with the three horses and is says happy birthday Becky and there is another one ,both on Pinterest, that says happy birthday as well but I cannot remember the name:-(. It also has grass on the bottom with a fence and a bunny in the grass.
Anyways I am just hoping to get some good tips or any insight. I was thinking of using tootsie rolls, shaped, and twix bars for the fence. Maybe some chocolate wafer cookies for the stable. I have five kids so I like to try to use time saving materials if I can.
Thank you so much in advance icon_smile.gif

that looks like a take on one of Debbie Brown's cakes. It is in her book...50 Easy Party Cakes. icon_smile.gif

The stable walls are fondant, using a knife to score it to achieve a wood grain look. I just did the stables a couple of weeks ago...I used an impression mat to get the wood look. icon_biggrin.gif

Ok, I found the book and the stable...thank you. Is this on a 9x13 cake or 8x11? I suppose it could be on either ,but for dimension wise just wanted to check. I am getting kind of nervous now about it turning out!

Sorry, me again! I have been doing my research, at least trying to! Does it matter what type of cake you use? I was a video where a box mix did not hold up well? Any suggestions or insight GREATLY appreciated icon_smile.gif

A doctored cake mix will hold up fine.  I use them for every cake I make, including the one I posted tonight "over the hill", and the cake in my avatar photo.  Just make sure you have sufficient supports between the tiers (cakes)

Thanks,

Myra

Thank you for the feedback! By doctored cakes you mean boxed cake mix from the store! And DH is Duncan Hines? Right?
Sorry I'm new
