I'd like to use the horses from the Wilton carousel kit, but prefer to decorate with something edible. I've experimented and painting thinned RI didn't look that great and I'm not that crazy about the decorations in the instructions. Any other ideas besides painting them with acrylic paints?? Is painting with candy melts possible?
I'd be willing to do make my own horses, but want them to look great - it's for my little girls's 4th b-day. Is there a good mold for making fondant carousel horses?
Any suggestions would help!

i made the wilton carousel cake a couple months ago and i painted the horses and the carousel with acrylic paints.

but since u want it to be edible, have you considered painting them with edible gel coloring?

I tried the gel color and it didn't work. So, I decided to try acrylic-it looks really good, so I am going with that! In the future, I think I'd use gumpaste in a mold and paint those...
