Top cakes for the love of horses.

Standing horse cake

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.

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.

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 :-)

Wild horses for Charlotte

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

carousel horse

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.

Horse 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!

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.

Horse Cookies

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!

This is incredible! How did you get the horse to stand? How would deliver something like this without damage? Terrific job. I would be interested in a .tutorial.
