Horse Cake/Ice Cream Cake!

When you have a last minute party and have to use what you have on hand this is what comes up!

My daughter Kaitie was really disappointed that her good friend was not having a birthday party this year with friends.  So she decided to have a surprise party for her at our house.  With less then a 1 day notice we had to make a cake!

So I let Kaitie and another one of her other good friends have the kitchen last night.  They were armed with a simple white cake recipe and I let them go to it.   This is what they made...they added chocolate chips to it as well :)

It seems they decided to disregard the cake directions of using a 9x9 pan.  Oh well, I had a plan!

We still had extra ice cream from the Owl cake I made 2 weeks ago.  So I softened it, and spread it across the cake trying to even things up a bit.  Put in the freezer to "set".

The Birthday girl loves horses...So to decorate I went online to find a horse silhouette.  Printed out the simplest one I could find...and made it into a stencil.  I was going to use chocolate shavings(aka chocolate sawdust) but I happened to have this orange sparkly sugar sprinkles stuff.

Turned out not bad eh!  The kids absolutely loved it.

I LOVE Birthdays!

Oh my gosh, that is so cool! How did you do the stencil? The result is amazing!
