My husband made this!

It was my husband's godson's fourth birthday last weekend and he volunteered to make the cake, what this means is 'my wife will bake the cake, do the boring stuff and I will make the fun bits.
Thomas lives on a lovely farm and has a Shetland pony called Rocket that he adores so we went with this as a theme. The horse spent a week on our worktop looking very much like a bear, we kept laughing at it and debating whether we should start over. I'm so glad he stuck with it though as it turned out really well in the end.
The cupcakes are topped with farm animals made from a mold and a swirl of Italian meringue buttercream, yum.

The party was brilliant and all the kids had an amazing time.
