you could make it look like those wreathes they put around the horses neck when they win a race. basically a horseshoe with flowers all over it and instead of congrats or #1 you would put happy birthday.

You could also put it on a bigger cake and write teh message on the other cake.

You could always do a rainbow - that would be the easiest and most 8 year olds like that.

Wilton has a water slide using the horseshoe pan. It is cute but may be a little more time comsuming. Here is the link (hope I did this right)

why do you have to use the horshoe pan??? Was that the request??? If so are they looking for you to make it a horseshoe??? I'm not sure what you're asking........are you asking for different uses other than a horseshoe or are you wanting to know how to decorate a horseshoe cake nicely???

If it's a horse theme using the horseshoe pan, here is what I did: Iced the inside of the horseshoe yellow (for a horseshoe!). Iced the remainder of the cake tan. The message was written on top with brown icing, and there was room at the open ends for yellow candles, 4 on each. For the sides, I had piped horse shapes with melted chocolate. Once hard, I stuck these all around the outside, using 8 horses total. She liked the cake so much, she wanted another exactly like it for another party.
