Here are a few photos of the cake I made for my little sister's birthday, my most challenging decorating endeavor to date (makes me really appreciate the talent of a couple of my family members!)
The hardest part-frosting an unusual shape!
The finished product:
And the happy birthday girl!
Her excited exclamation and beaming face made it all worth the effort!
My mom sent me this link, How to Make a Horse Cake, for the instructions.
