Well, this cake tested my artistic talents! It turns out that I really don't have any, but I am great at looking like I do! The horse on this pretty cake was actually a cut out of an outline of a horse and then traced on the cake using a detail knife. I then painted the silhouette using black food coloring and white writing icing. I used the same writing icing mixed with other colors to create the grass and painted on flowers. The other flowers were made from fondant and gumpaste with little sprinkles. They were placed along the top of the cake around her name and on the painted grass using sugar water. All though I never could have free hand painted this cake, I couldn't be happier with how great it turned out!
