Next on my list for cakes to make for Birthday Dreams was a My Little Pony Cake. I went on the search for a perfect but easy cake idea. Well I found tons of cakes but no easy step by step. So I did my own thing! I wanted to do Rarity which is the White Unicorn with purple hair.
I started with my Moist White Cake that I tinted one pink and one purple. I found a My little pony coloring page that I used as my template. I cut it down to the size I needed, check out my Google Drive HERE to print it out.
While I let my cakes had cool. I made up a batch of my favorite Sturdy Buttercream frosting. When the cake was cooled, I took my template and cut out the Pony's. I placed a tablespoon or so of frosting onto the cake board and put my first pony cake out. Place some frosting on top and then topped with my 2nd pony cake. I then crumb coated with a light frosting layer.
I put my cake in the fridge to firm up (we've been having unusual HOT weather here). I made up a batch of my favorite Rolled Buttercream Fondant. I took about a 1/4 of the fondant and tinted it Purple using AmeriColor Regal Purple food coloring. I took a about 1/8 of a cup and made the eye. I used a petal leaf cutter I bought at Hobby Lobby to make the eye shape. I used the large in white fondant, medium in blue fondant and the small to cut black fondant (see pictures below).
For the hair I rolled out my purple fondant using a circle cutter and my hand placed it on the head. NOW the template I used had two ears! The pony I was doing had a horn! So I moved my ear to the center to be a horn and place the purple hair around it.
Not one of my prettiest cakes but I sure hope that the little girl enjoyed it. I took this cake to a domestic violence house so I had to be buzzed in and drop the cake off at the front and never got a chance to meet the little girl.
I used my square cookie cutter to cut out three in the blue shade (using AmeriColor Royal Blue Food Gel). I added a mouth and a little black fondant to the ear (black was created by using AmeriColor Super Black Food Gel).
I covered my cake in white fondant, cut off the extra and then added the touches (see photos below).
All packed u and ready to go!
I pick up these cake boxes at Hobby Lobby.
