Hi all! I think this may be my first post! I've got a few pics of cakes up, but I am more of a reader than chatter here!
I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for a simple horse carousel cake? my little one is turning 3, and has been asking for this cake for 6 months now! the only issue is it's just going to be me & my littles (7, 5, 3, & 1). my dh is deployed, and we are far from family, so we aren't doing a big party. I still want to give her the cake of her dreams, but I don't want to be eating it for a month! I'd prefer not to spend a ton as well. I have 1/2 a tub of duff's white buttercream flavored fondant, and lots of wilton icing colors ....
thanks so much!
As far as size you could do a 6 in size wise and decorate it like this:
welcome to CC, i am usally a reader too, but i was looking at the carousel cakes today myself. if you wanted to do a smaller cake you could do a 5 or 6 inch cake for the center. rolled out fondant for the platform under the cake and use RKT covered in fondant to make the crown of the carousel. hope that helps!!!!
thanks for the ideas!
