Topic: Barrel racing cake, pink & green with zebra stripes, 18th Birthday

8 inch round. BW BC with MMF cutouts. Let me tell you, that horse & rider was extremely difficult to cut out! It was small & with the detail, it was tedious. The saying on the top is one of the birthday girl's favorite sayings. It was quite a bit to fit onto an 8"!!!

Thank you all! While I see several imperfections, overall I was pretty happy with it. & the birthday girl called to let me know that she loved it

I think you did a wonderful job. I don't see those imperfections at all.

I love it! And that saying is perfect, as well.

How did you cut the horse and barrel out?

I used my xacto knife on fondant that was about 1/4" (or slightly less) thick. Found a silhouette online that I liked, cut it out, then placed on the fondant which was dusted with powdered sugar and cut around it.
