Wanting a horse cake for my girls’ western birthday party, I took to the internet for horse cake ideas and cupcake cake ideas, and amidst a slew of odd looking horses, I found an amazing horse cupcake cake from a cake shop in Texas (the original link is long gone unfortunately).

I don’t live in Texas so I decided to try to re-create the pattern and share it with all DIYers out there.

To cut the cost, 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.

To feed the hungry crowd of cowgirls and cowboys, I make extra cupcakes wrapped in western themes wrappers available in with the cowgirl party decorations set in my shop. (I also have a cowboy party decoration set).

    I love this idea! My daughter wants a unicorn cake so I’ll use a sugar cone as the horn. Thank you for sharing, this looks so easy and just adorable!

          I didn’t, the print out is just for reference to arrange the cupcakes on the board.

    Hey! I am gonna try this for my niece’s party. Did you pipe the icing onto the cupcakes before you arranged them on the board or after? What size board did you have to use to fit it all on there? Thanks! You did a great job!!

      I honestly don’t remember the size of the board. I know I bought it that size at Walmart. My best guess is around 2′ by 2.5′. The cupcakes get iced after you set them up on the board. It’s a good idea to put a little frosting at the bottom of the cupcakes so they don’t slip. Have fun!
