I have a request for a Horse Racing/Jockey themed wedding cake (the groom is a jockey).
The bride mentioned she would like a 3-D replica of the groom and herself with their horses, and she doesn't want the design to be too cartoon like, but that's all I have to go on.
If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them. I seem to be at a loss for ideas on this one.
I remember when watching Last Cake Standing Marina did a horse racing cake. Her base was like a mini racing track with the white fence/ gate. Then as she worked up it was kind of shaped like a trophy. The top was a chocolate horse made from a huge mold she had and it had a woman sitting side sattle and then the owner next to the horse. The horse had a big rose garland around its neck. ANd of course the name of the horse was on the cake....Does this Jockey only race one particular horse?
check out pics of Churchill Downs In KY (IDK how to spell that haha)I went there as a SR in HS and it is beautiful and where the Kentucky Derby is! I bet it could give you some inspiration. HTH!
I looked for a pic of that cake I was talking about but could not find one. I know she did a corset tier and that is what I thought made it look a bit like a trophy. As far as the main design though, besides the race track and topper it was just a really pretty wedding cake with classic piping work =)
Thanks for the ideas
