Horse Cake

Ok, so far, this is by far, my favorite cake I've done... Horse related, pink, me...this was for my 10 year old lesson client... it's a replica of her horse... she was thrilled with it!

Murphy's Law - I got a good dose!

So I was lamenting over stupid comment someone said that made me feel bad, I decided to just go about my reason to get bogged down by stupidity, right?
So while Kevin is warming up a horse for a client to ride, I sat making small talk with her and her mother, then all of a sudden the SKY FELL ON MY HEAD! I heard a scream (not my own) and was covered in bird poop, eggs (ouch! one broke) and hay....a bird's nest had fallen from the ceiling of our indoor arena... gag! So a quick change and wash up later, we're good to go.
I get a text "will you make a cake for Claire for this weekend's horse show?" Panic sets in...I'm already obligated to 2 other cakes, 6 dozen cookies and we have a barn full of horses to prep (i.e. LONG hours), but they DID just BUY a horse through us, and she's 9 and CAN I say no? I mean really? and her mom is so sigh...I agree... and of course they choose flavors I don't have the ingredients for... so it's 9:30ish p.m. and we decide to make a Wal-Mart run. I shower, throw on my new shorts and I'm good to all over Wal-Mart and get back into our truck just to realize that the size sticker was stuck to my butt and ran half way down my leg! least I most likely blended right in...LOL

and psst...I've got a blog just for Cookies and Cakes.... Cookie Couture (take a look)
