Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynn78 from I am definitely a novice and was able to make this. I only had 24 people coming to the party though so I didn't make the top layer. I decorated it in buttercream flowers and the little Wilton pearls and made sure I kept it to a design that I was comfortable doing. Everyone loved it, especially my daughter. A word of warning. Our local Joann Fabric only sold a Wilton 9 1/2" round pan. I thought it would be fine (what's a 1/2") apparently a lot. It was a close fit and if I had trimmed the edged at all, the posts would not have fit at all. It was fun though and I offered to do it for my niece's birthday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elyana from I made this for my neice's 1st birthday party she was so happy that she thought it was a toy she wanted to play with it haha. All the people in the party never thought that the carusel was a cake they were allways aking me how and when did I did it. Its fun and interesting how to use all the wilton things like the fondant, Icing colors, pearl dust, roll and cut mat and different tips. When I saw my little neice smilling all the time to the cake and takeing a lot of pictures to it it make me feel happy and thanking the wilton princess merry go round cake set...

Rated 3 out of 5 by FirstCake from I love how pretty this. I am also glad that I have some experience baking and I am rather creative. The instructions could be more exact, they have forgotten to tell you how to do the leaves (butter cream, or royal icing). Both would work though I thought I would point it out though. I would not recommend this for a beginner if you are a perfectionist, it takes a lot of time and some knowledge to get the flowers exact, if you are OK with nothing being exact then anyone could make this cake. It is very pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by piccolo from I felt this cake was diffucult due to having to decorate the horses and carousel with royal icing because when I was putting it together some of the decorations on the horses and carousel broke off so I had to start over. Once I got everything to stay on and it put together it was beautiful. I am thinking about painting the horses and carousel so I wont have the same problem next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaNJ from I made this for my neice's first birthday and got rave reviews. The personnel at the restaurant where the party was held were dumbstruck. They had never seen such a detailed, beautiful cake! The only trouble is that no one wanted to cut it ; ). To cut corners just a bit, I colored in the carousel with the pink Wilton edible marker. This was well worth the effort

Rated 5 out of 5 by Naomi's Cakes from I made this cake for my daughter's first birthday, and it was beautiful! It took longer than I'd anticipated, but it was totally worth it! The horses were a little difficult to decorate as well as I would have liked because the icing tip didn't fit in all the little spaces, but it still turned out fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BethesdaBaker from I found this cake to be very easy and my daughter loved it. You can add the top layer of cake or go without it. The decorating is easy, just time consuming. When done it looks like it was much harder to do than it is.
