Rated 5 out of 5 by Chef Givens from I made this into a tier cake by placing this on top of another cake for my cousins baby shower..... The over all turnout was amazing..... My advice is to anyone trying this for the first time would be to take your time..... Instead of trying to use buttercream to ice the ball..... I would assemble the ball with the buttercream and to just put enough icing on the outside for fondant to stick and role out the fondant big enough to cover the ball and smooth it lightly .Also if you want you can use gum paste for the doors and windows... and make a little set of steps out of the gum paste .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam's Momo from The carriage comes out better if you use white fondant and then decorate. To make the base of the cake you can use the round cookie. To make the brace for the horses, I used a short white dowel - used royal icing to help stabilize the horses on the cake board. Also right after baking the carriage windows and door cookies it is helpful to put the warm cookies inside the cake pan so they will have a slight curve to them. I also make the cookies a little thicker than the recipe calls for. Beautiful cake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsWilson from The piece was pretty simple in technique to do. The part that was the hardest was the time it took. If you really spread everything out over a few days then it's really easy. It just takes time and patience. The problems I ran into was the cookie recipe was wrong. That is way too much dough and the recipe was completely off on flour amounts. I only used the recipe for the horses in the end because the cookies were just too heavy to try to stick on the cake. I used fondant like another person suggested, and it was so much easier to work with and put on the cake. I also mixed up colors and put different flowers on there. I used 4 horses instead of 2 to make it more grand. It was really beautiful. The horses kept breaking so use a different cookie recipe and have extra royal icing on hand to fix it. I also used dowels through the horses to brace them since there isn't a brace actually in here. Overall, it was beautiful and amazing. Everyone was amazed and loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Love Crafting from I enjoyed making this cake. It took a lot of time & patience. I did buy the cookie dough to make the wheels. I did not make the horses since it was part of a princess theme we created. I will be making cake again soon & plan to make the horses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Love Crafting from I enjoyed making this cake for my granddaughter. I did take a few shortcuts. I used the doors and windows from the princess castle mold and we purchased the cookies and decorated them (mine homemade cookies kept breaking).

Rated 3 out of 5 by saragraham from Such a cute idea, and I have done several cakes, and am not afraid to take on a challenge but this was indeed a challenge to execute--but I think I may try it again sometime before giving up on it entirely...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Judy O from I used this concept, just toned it down a little. I used it as part of a huge Princess scene for my granddaughters birthday! I used a mini dome cake and pick to make Cinderella.
