The Alicorn Cake
This time I made up the cookie recipe and pressed the cookies out rather than roll them. Cookies were used to make the wings, horn, flowers and garland. I'm happy with how the horn turned out, but I wish I had more time to figure out the tail. I suppose the chocolate buttercream pony tail worked, it just looks too short and it probably should have been white, but I had already mixed in the chocolate. I also would have liked to shape the front legs better. The velvet cake recipe still gives the best texture for carving out cake designs. If you are wondering, I'm writing these notes for myself. This is how I figure out what cakes I use from year to year.
And I still can't believe she's twenty.
