A cake i made for my cousin!
Hey everyone :) Only a small one here, just thought I'd start sharing cakes that I have made :)
Feel free to leave feedback or ideas :D
This cake was made last year for my cousin when he became an officially qualified and certified farrier!
Sorry for lack of photos, didn't expect to be so drawn to cake making when I was making it. Turned out to be addictive! :)
Break down of what was used:
Cake board is actually a giant foam board (the cake was rather big)
The board was covered with fondant and the clouds, reins and insects are made from fondant
I then painted the hills on using food colouring
The tools are made from sugar-paste
I used buttercream to pipe grass
And finally the horses are vanilla and chocolate sponge filled and covered with vanilla and chocolate buttercream!
This cake grew bigger than planned but for a first cake it turned out great!
It was very time consuming and there is no way I could have done it then without my boyfriend and sister :)
So don't be afraid to try something new!!
Dive in and enjoy it :D and always be proud of what you have achieved :)
