Giddy Up Cake
Here is the cute "Giddy Up" horse cake I made for a 9 year old girl's birthday party this weekend. I posted a "sneak peek" of the horse topper last week and this is how it looked on the completed cake.
This cake is a classic yellow vanilla cake and frosted in both Swiss meringue and traditionally buttercream. The decorations are all made of fondant.
I was pleased with how it turned out but next time I would add some type of border to the top of the cake. Since this cake is just covered in buttercream it does not have that seamless smoothness that a cake covered in fondant would have. I think the edges look a little rough to me because of it and a border might have given it a nice finishing touch. What do you think...border, yay or NEIGH??
