My dil wants to make horses on my grandson's bd cupcakes. Anybody know how to do a horse? I looked at the wilton site and found a cows head and I think she could kind of go by that if nothing else. Thanks.
Oh, the wedding was great! My sheet cakes were a big hit because the actual wedding cake we bought was awful. No taste and it looked like the leaning tower. That was the only disappointment in the whole day.
If you can find a picture of a horse maybe you could make a piping gel transfer on your cake. Then you could just fill in the outline with buttercream stars.
You can get a lot of good transfers from coloring books. Just trace the outline onto wax paper or something. Lot of folks would'nt think it but coloring books are full of transfers.
Thanks! I didn't realize I had any replies! Hadn't gotten any emails about it. I'll pass on the info to her.
There's an article in The American Cake Mag. for a full unicorn. I'm sure you could just follow the directions for the head, minus the horn. I think it would be the Sept/Oct issue
I'm not familiar with that magazine. Is it an online one or one I would have to purchase somewhere? We have a cake supply store in Louisville but I'm not sure if he carries magazines. Thanks.
You could ask but mostly I found you have to have a subscription. Sorry, I would post but don't think it's allowed. Maybe I could explain some details?
Wilton yearbooks would probably be easier to get a hold of and you could just change the technique to a horse if you found one close enough.
She could just do a Chocolate transfer. That's what I did on one of my cakes and it was really easy. Would be great for cupcakes. Check it out in my pictures.
I'll have her check the wilton books and then she can opt for a coloring book. I'm thinking just go with another idea at this point. Birthday is tomorrow.
Thanks again everybody!
