My Little Pony cake!

I'm a qualified baker and training pastry chef who likes to bake cakes in my spare time. Recently I've had a few requests for birthday cakes and one of them was a My Little Pony cake for the young daughter of a friend of mine. Her only specifications were "rainbow cake and her favourite colour is pink" so with that in mind I made the cake I've been wanting to make for some time now: Pinkie Pie's gala dress! The birthday party in question isn't till this Saturday but I am having an operation tomorrow (just having a tooth out, nothing serious) and I wasn't sure if I'd be fully recovered from the general anesthetic by Thursday/Friday. Anyway!

Inside the top cake after I levelled it off. Looks a bit like a CT scan! I'm amused that she wanted a brightly coloured rainbow cake for a party filled with 2-3 year olds - they are going to be bouncing off the walls!

I cut three layers into both cakes, filled them with rasplum jam and raspberry and wizz fizz (sherbert) buttercream, then coated both with more buttercream.

Sampling the buttercream and jam combo from some offcuts!

The finished cake! I used Bakels RTR fondant and I found it SO MUCH EASIER to use than ones I've made myself. The Pinkie figurine is one of the blind bag ones with florist's wire stuck into two of her legs to keep her upright.

A closer look at the top!

Just some of the many, many dishes I now have to wash up.

Cross-posted around the various baking/cake comms and the pony comm!

Gorgeous cake but the kids will be bouncing off the walls with all that sugar and colour! ;-)

Your pile of dishes to be washed made me laugh - Oh, for self cleaning dishes and utensils!

Hah - I warned my friend about that repeatedly and she just laughed and said she to go nuts with it. Between the colours, the jello crystals, the sherbet and the fondant... I'm glad I'm not going!

I'm just glad I have a dishwasher at times like this. It was one of the NEED to have items when we were looking for a place to rent.

I'm 28 next year and will be making myself a rainbow dash cake! And just today I had a request for a Twilight Sparkle cake for a male friend turning 25 or 26 (I can't remember) next week.

Im making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do,
