Okay.. seen the horse made from the lamb pan.. thought what a great idea for my daughters birthday.. so, did it up... used DH right out of the box, buttercream icing... looked awesome... then... then.... the horse decapited itself... its was like the godfather... the head fell right off. WHY??? the only thought was that the icing was to heavy? what should I have done to prevent this?

well from what I've learned in the passed is when you make a 3 D cake it's always best to use a pound cake DH is a good cake but it's to soft to hold up a shape.

A sturdy cake is a must, especially on cakes that have sticking-out parts, like the head. When I make a cake in a stand-up pan (like the ducky for example - notorious for spontaneous decapitation) I go ahead and cut the head off, and dowel and board it as if it were a separate cake stacked on top, then dowel down through the head and neck.
