I need to make a horse topper for my daughter's cake. She's requested a bucking mama horse and baby horse (she'll be 7). She wants them to look real, not the cartoon looking kind. I read you can use a wire frame, but I don't know where to get one. Do you buy wire and make it in the shape of a horse or does it come already shaped? I've looked online, but haven't seen anything like that. She does not want a flat plaque either.

I had a cake like this and I ended up using a plastic horse and removed it's mane and tail and covered with a mixtue of gumpaste and sugar glue (made with tylo powder). The glue 'melted' the paste and allowed me to smooth it over the horse and then I painted it and added details with gumpaste such as the mane, tail and saddle. I will upload the cake to my photo's it's not there at the mo as the cake was a disaster but was pretty pleased with the horse. I hope this helps a little? Good luck, it was certainly a challenge!
