She loves horses so I decided on a ‘My Little Pony’ theme for her birthday.
I will admit, I loved My little Ponies when I was young. I really wanted an excuse to buy her first ponies!
With this theme, it was all about bright colors, rainbows, glitter, and of course……the original My Little Pony Movie.
So for my sweet 2 year old, a My Little Pony cake and cookies:
With a delicious rainbow center…
We were having a small party so I didn’t need a big cake. I made a 10 inch My Little Pony cake and Rainbow Cookies. For this post, I am going to take you through the steps I took and in the order that I took them.
A few days before I made the cake, I made the rainbow so it would have time to dry.
Using gumpaste dyed in the colors of the rainbow, I rolled out a rope starting with red and placed it on a corn-starched cookie sheet in the size and shape of rainbow that I wanted.
I repeated this in all the colors.
After I placed all the colors together I painted a little bit of water between the roped with a clean paintbrush to help the different ropes stick together.
Then I inserted some toothpicks into the bottom on the rainbow. Break the toothpicks in half before you insert them. When the gumpaste dries it will hold the toothpicks and then you can insert the toothpicks into the top of the cake, holding it upright.
**Let the rainbow dry for 48-72 hours.
‘My Little Pony’ Cake
I wanted to carry the rainbow theme into the inside of the cake. It was a surprise I knew the birthday girl would love.
Using two white cake mixes and two 10inch pans, I dyed 2 cups of cake mix the 6 colors of the rainbow.
I used these baking, stacking and icing tips to get this cake started.

Are you starting to think there are too many rainbows? Never, right?
