My daughter requested a pony party for her 6th birthday and wanted a simple cake and multi-flavored mini cupcakes. I made a small 6″ round 3-layer ombre cake with horse figurines on top. (An “ombre cake” is just a layer cake with graded hues of a single color…or different colors, depending on the look you want.) Since she’s really into blue, I graduated the buttercream colors from dark blue to white. I topped it with a little “pasture” with the horses and a banner bearing her name. Perfect for my little cowgirl!
