Additional Information

Step 1

Several days in advance: Make plaques for cake sides. Use pattern to make 10 ovals; tape to board and cover with waxed paper. Outline with tip 2 and full-strength color flow; fill in with thinned color flow. Let dry. Using royal icing, fill 10 tip 102 roses with tip 6 bases; let dry. Pipe 140 small drop flowers with tip 225 and 30 medium with tip 129; add tip 2 dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage; let dry. Attach center rose plus 3 medium and 10 small drop flowers to each oval using royal icing dots. Let dry. Brush all with Pearl Dust.

Bake and cool Pony cake plus 2-layer base cake (bake four 2 in. high Half-Rounds to make 4 in. high round).

Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.

The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate stringwork. Called a ?drop? string because the line of piped icing is allowed to ?drop? or fall, by itself, before re-attaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.

Create this magnificent rose - the most popular icing flower of them all. With practice, your roses will have the just-picked look of real fresh garden roses!

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The pull-out star technique can be used for fun, furry creatures, or for textured hair for your cakes.

Ruffles add a decorative top border to your cakes or cupcakes. Pipe ruffles around plaques or to trim doll dresses or bonnets.

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.

The Princess' Pony Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made mine a little different since the little girl I made it for is a bit of a tomboy. Instead of the pastel colors, I made a brown pony and mounted it on top of the round cake as seen here, but I used butter cream icing and the basket weave tip to pipe a fence around the sides of the round cake so it looked like a coral. Then using the "grass" tip, I made grass around the bottom of the fence as the bottom border for the cake. It was a lot of fun to make and the kids loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This turned into the most beautiful Unicorn my greatniece ever saw! All I did was make a horn out of rice crispie treats and cover it with buttercream icing, let it set up in the fridge for a bit then I painted it with gold luster dust and inserted it in to the top of the pony's head! I used purple frosting for the mane and gold for the bridle, blue for the eye and white for the rest. My Mary was so pleased! This was one of the easiest cakes I've made!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake is very cute but it took me FOREVER to make all the decorations ahead of time. Also, just baking the cake took hours as I needed to make 3 separate cakes (2 large halves plus the pony cake). All told, I think I spent about 16 hours making this cake. Granted, I have only taken the beginning cake decorating class and this is my 5th decorated cake, so I am a beginner. My daughter absolutely loved it and I'm glad I made it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I changed the look of this cake. Instead of using the round cake under the pony i made the pony in three layers as my granddaughter wanted a chocolate, strawberry and vanilla cake layers (all pony head).I frosted and decorated it and it turned out really nice. This cake would be easy for beginners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this cake for a little girl named "Bella". She had pink cowboy boots on when I delivered the cake and was too excited to talk. Used white icing for the cake and gray for the mane with a pink bridle. Found that using stars for the bridle was easier than smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my 6 year old's birthday using the pastel colours and for my other daughter's 1st birthday making the pony brown. It was easy to make and turned out amazing!
