Sometimes naming a cake is the easiest and most obvious thing in the world to do. Other times I name them things like Turquoise & Brown Cowgirl Horse Cake.
Why do I worry about such things? Well because Google is picky about names and such and if you name it just right, then it’ll turn up in all the right search results and if you name it wrong – maybe nobody will ever find your picture.
Since I love blogging as much as I love cake decorating and I really want my pictures to be found… I have to try and name my cakes with all the right words! But I’m rambling and you don’t really care about things like that, so let’s talk about the cake!
Anyway – here are some details… the cake was 6″ and 8″ round cakes – vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. The brown fondant was Satin Ice Brown and all of the other fondant was homemade marshmallow fondant.
For these, I used strips on fondant and sugar glue on the back to secure them.
For the horse, I first rolled out some brown fondant on a flexible cutting board. Then I covered it with wax paper and laid a printed out a coloring sheet template on top. I can’t find this exact one, but I searched and chose one from a page like this.
I just shot a tutorial for doing this gathered bandanna look (I’ll be sharing one day soon I hope), but in the meantime, I can tell you the cookie cutters I used to make the bandanna pattern. The main three were these daisy cutters, these comma (paisley) cutters, a black food marker, and silver dragees.
And that’s it… my Turquoise & Brown Cowgirl Horse Cake! Do you have any questions about this cake or the details? I love to hear from readers, so leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to reply!
