Hello everyone,
Thank you for taking the time to read my request thumbs_up.gif
My daughter who is turning 4 in mid april has requested a My little pony cake. I'm not to crazy about the character pans as they take forever & don't turn out that sharp. Would any of you talented people have some other ideas in mind, I'm just looking for something simple as I am pregnant & I am due 2 weeks after my daughter birthday icon_surprised.gif
Thanks again for taking the time to help this mommy out thumbs_up.gif

Have you thought of putting a toy pony on top of the cake?
That usually worked for me when my daughter was that age.
My daughter danced the pony in the icing before eating the cake!
Good luck on the cake and congratulations on the baby-to-be!!!!

I did one of these last fall... a very simple one too!

Unfortunately I haven't gotten the picture yet. I will try to get it again-it was taken on someone elses digital camera.

I will try to describe it though. First I went and picked out a pony of the toy section =) I ended up with one from the butterfly island collection b/c I knew it was one the birthday girl didn't have. For the cake I made a regular cake mix in a bundt pan, and two cupcakes. I used one cupcake in the middle to fill up the whole of the bundt shape and then put another one on top of the bundt cake. The one on top had water coming down it like a water fall and then the one in the middle sat below the top of the bundt cake so I made that blue also for a lake. The rest of the bundt cake was green then I used some flowers to decorate (drop flowers are great for this =) and you can make them ahead of time with royal!) Then I added the toys to finish it off.

The birthday girl liked it b/c she had the toy to play with. It was quick and easy =)

If you wanted you could start making the cakes a week or two in advance and freeze well wrapped. That should make things easier on you, not trying to do it all at once. Then just mix up a batch of icing (total about 6 cups) two colors to mix and you're good to go =)

Hope this helps. I will try again to get a picture of the cake so I can post it for you.

there's one in my photos. the ponies are generic ponies from the dollar store ($1 for two of them icon_biggrin.gif ) the girl's name is done with royal icing, but you could leave that off. she loved it, and loved that she had ponies to play with. i used the smallest oval pan, the grass and fur tip for grass. i just made the colors bright, since that's how the my little ponies are. didn't take much time at all. good luck with your new little one

this one is neat. You can use toys instead of molding the horses.

what would you think of doing something like this only using a white horse with rainbow colored mane or whatever the favorite colors of the birthday girl are?????? I would be happy to give you instructions

Everyone's ideas are really cute. Will you need a big cake? You can do a simple cake....stacked rounds with a pony on top...a square many possiblities.

Here is a picture of a cake that I made for my daughter's 4th b-day last year. I used a Wilton pony pan that I've had forever! I bought it to make a cake for my little sister when she WAS little, now she's 21! Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif
