Mad about Ponies

Pony Cake Closeup

My client, C, had originally approached me about miniature sugar paste cakes. They were for a young lady celebrating her birthday at the Bukit Timah Saddle Club.

Since fondant, the humid weather and I don’t seem to agree with each other, I suggested a cake with a royal icing pony instead when C told me that a pony ride would be part of the day’s events.

I went ahead and designed a trial royal icing pony. I soon realised that it would not be an easy task getting the pony on to the cake without breaking it and the only thing I could think of was using fondant as a support as I’d done for the giraffe. I guess I couldn’t escape fondant after all!

Royal Icing Pony

As expected, the fondant was only semi-dry. Still, I think the chocolate cake turned out pretty cute. I only hope it survived long enough for the birthday girl to cut the cake!

    Thanks, Stef! I tried drawing him thinner, but he wasn’t that adorable anymore. So fat he stayed. :)

    Looks tasty enough!

    I bet your little client will be completely thrilled!

    BTW, can you not make the Pony seperately and then lay it over once it’s done? You can then use whatever magic you’ve got in your kitchen to melt it down securely on the sides?

    Just some personal thoughts… so pay no attention to it if it doesn’t make sense. ;-)
