Josie’s Birthday Cake

My sister asked for a small cake for her daughter’s birthday party.  Other than the birthday girl’s request for a horse and flowers on her cake, I was given free rein as to design.  As you can see, I took full advantage of it!  I had another design entirely planned, but after finding this adorable cake, I decided to make my own version of it.

Iced with Swiss meringue buttercream, the top tier is all chocolate cake, but  the bottom tier is “black and tan” – one layer of chocolate and one of golden butter cake with chocolate ganache filling for all.  The accents and modeled figure are made from gumpaste and homemade fondant.
