Cake Wreck

My daughter's 5th birthday inspired me to make my first "cut-out" cake. It was supposed to be a pony. I'm not sure how I made it this long before I attempted one of these cakes, but let me assure you: It's not as easy as it looks.

Here is a summary of the comments I received:

  • "That's not a pony."
  • "That's not purple." (True...It looked more gray in person)
  • "It's a turkey" (2 votes)
  • "It's a pigeon" (1 vote)
  • "It's a pig" (2 votes)
  • "It's a wolf" (2 votes)
  • "What angle are you supposed to look at it from?"
I may submit it to Cakewrecks.

I think it looks like a bloated, blushing chick! But I'm sure it was yummy!

I'm with the "it looks like a turkey" crowd. Though after seeing the reference picture, I can totally see the pony.

It was made with love and besides, if it looked too much like a real pony, no one would want to eat it!

Kudos for trying!

Was it supposed to be purple? I thought it was PINK!

And as for Scott's comment, I can relate with the whole litter-box-cake-thing that took place a few years back.
