A Horse Cake for Angela
Angela's Horse Birthday Cake
My Angela recently celebrated her 9th birthday. She asked for a horse cake. Once again I started looking on-line for an easy and easy-to-please cake.
I found a pretty simple one on Kraftfoods.com, they even had a template you could use to cut your cake. Our printer is on the blitz, but I found it pretty easy to make my own following their example.
I used a regular 9x13 pan and cake mix for the cake. I cut out the pieces and then placed them together and used toothpicks as nails to hold them together.
Then I just used chocolate icing to ice the whole thing. I used licorice (cherry and chocolate) for the reins and mane. M&M chocolates and lifesavers made up the bridle, and 2 white lifesavers with M&M's were the eyes.
Angela really liked her horse cake and so did the brothers and sisters because not only did they have cake and ice cream, there was enough candies on the cake for everyone to get some!
