A happy colourful cake for a happy colourful girl with a passion for ponies (especially My Little Pony). The cake base was a basic two tiered affair decorated with rainbow spots and stripes. A round cake cut in half and sandwiched together was used for the rainbow on top of the cake. The butterflies and rainbow pony (i think its name is Rainbow Dash) were made out of modelling icing. I cut the butterfly shapes out with a cookie cutter then dried them over a rolling pin lined with baking paper to get the curve of the wings. The patterns were then piped on with royal icing, as were the pony's mane and tail. Oh yes, there were butterflies because it was a butterfly themed party.
