Horse-theme birthday cake and ice cream ideas
A recipe for fun at your pony party starts when you plan the birthday cake to match
your horse theme. Visit our other Web site at www.ponypartyideas.com for some extra
horsey inspiration for your party. Here are some other ideas to make your horse-
theme party go off without a hitch:
- Check Wilton's pony party lineup. You'll find a stable of pony party cake selections
when you search Wilton on Amazon. Horse head cakes are easy with Wilton's
newest "party pony pan," pictured at the top left of the page. Another fun
option is to bake horse shoe shaped cakes. The great thing about the pan is
that after you've baked the cakes you can use it as a tray for a snack mix or
other pony party food, like a tray of sandwiches.
- Party tip: For good luck, always have your horse shoes facing in a "U"
shape so the "luck" doesn't run out.
- Wrangle up a cookie corral. Here's an idea for you cookie: make pony party cakes
using cookies you bake and frost as cake toppers. You'll find cookie cutters for a
cowboy party, cowgirl party, or just about any pony birthday. Iced cookies make
festive cake decorations, as do chocolates and other molded candies. Cake
designs and cookies with Dragees (shiny, metallic-colored balls) add an elegant
- Save time serving ice cream at your horse party. While a dollop of ice cream is the
perfect accompaniment to your cake, you may miss smiles and excitement in the
scramble to scoop for your impatient little party goers. Minimize the chore and
gain precious moments by scooping ice cream into short plastic cups ahead of
time and keeping them in the freezer.
- Put that Horse out to pasture! An easy pony birthday party cake idea is to put
some Horse figurines on a meadow of grass. Breyer Mini Whinnies make a good
choice. Search "Safari Horses and Ponies Mega Toob" on Amazon. For a Cowboy
birthday cake, choose "Wild West Toob" to decorate a whole cake. Coconut
grass is a fun way to display a Horse figurine on a cupcake or cake accented
with a few candy flowers.
- How to make coconut grass: Place sweetened coconut shreds into a bowl, add a
hint of food green color and mix by hand until you reach the desired color. The
expert trick is to use food color paste, which is thicker than the liquid form. We
also suggest you use disposable plastics glove to protect hands, or contain the
mess in a plastic bag to mix, shake and knead.
- How to make green butter cream: Butter cream for your cake or cupcakes is easy.
Just mix the following in a blender at starting at a slow speed and increasing the
speed until light and fluffy.
* 1 cup softened butter
* 4-1/2 cups powdered sugar
* 2 teaspoons hot water
* few drops green food dye
* few drops flavor with vanilla, or other drops such as lemon
- How to make candy flowers: Take gumdrop style sugar coated candy (e.g,
Brachs), and flatten the pretty pink, purple or yellow or orange ones with a
rolling pin, then roll them into rose buds. Accent with leaves cut from flattened
green candies. Place gum candied flowers on the bed of coconut grass and place
some horse figurines.
How to set up the cake table for your pony party
Your cake can double as decor if your party is indoors and the temperature is right.
You worked hard to pick the right cake, so set up a table much the way a wedding
cake is on display. For a Wild West themed cowboy party (or any Western party),
drape Hessian cloth, a burlap sack material, over the table and make a display of
horse figurines tied with licorice ropes. Use jute string to tie the corners for an outdoor
affair or just staple to the picnic tables to keep the wind from picking up. Include sheriff
badges affixed to the cloth, use tin plates or wrap plates in tin foil, stack gold nuggets
with small cowboy figures standing guard. You'll find your toy selection offers lots of
ideas to decorate your pony birthday.
