My Little Pony Cake and Cupcake Tower

Remember I mentioned that I only bake birthday cake for Lil’ C? Well, this year I actually made another birthday cake for Lil’ C’s best friend E who is only 1 day younger than C. When I volunteered to make her cake, I thought that their birthday parties would be 1 week apart but they ended up just 2 days apart!! So for those 3 or 4 days, it seems like everything else in life was on hold while I was getting the 2 cakes ready! Hehe.. Next year I need to make sure that their parties are at least 1 week apart!!

Anyway, E loves ponies & horses. So I thought a My Little Pony cake would be perfect for her. This is what E got for her birthday. . . . . .

My Little Pony Cake

A My Little Pony House with a rooftop party!! It’s a chocolate mud cake covered in marshmallow fondant. As usual, everything is edible except for the little ponies. I took the lazy way out & just bought the My Little Pony figurines. Most of the decorations were made from marshmallow fondant while the 4 roses on top were made with 50% marshmallow fondant + 50% sugar paste.

Someone asked if marshmallow fondant can be used to make figurines and I would say not a good idea. If you want to make a 3-D figurines or big decorations like the 4 roses above, it is better not to use marshmallow fondant because they do not fully dry. So if you make a figurine or big roses, it will flop over after sometime. On the other hand, sugar paste or gum paste dries very hard and can be brittle. So I prefer to use a mixture of half-fondant and half-sugar paste to make the roses. The little flowers can be made with marshmallow fondant.

Since this cake was only 8″, both E’s mom & I were not sure if it would be enough for the party. So I made some cupcakes just in case.

Cupcake Tower

I really love how the cupcakes look in the cupcake stand. We actually borrowed this stand from a friend. I am so tempted to get one for myself!! 😛
