Wanting a horse cake for my girls’ western birthday party, I took to the internet and amidst a slew of odd looking horses, I found an amazing horse cupcake cake from a cake shop in Texas.
I don’t live in Texas so I decided to try to re-create the pattern and share it with all DIYers out there.
You may print this picture or download the pdf below to help you position the cupcakes on your board. Instead of a cake board, I used an inexpensive foam board.

I piped each cupcake with a Wilton 1M tip in a swirl pattern with a chocolate buttercream. I used the same tip and vanilla buttercream for the white tail and mane, as well as the tip of the hooves and eye. For the eye, mouth and eyelashes (the girls really wanted eyelashes), I used a black licorice.
I loved the idea of a cupcake cake, the bonus is that both kids and adults got to choose their favorite flavor cupcake.
Here you have it in action!
