Horses and Gold Panning

June 14, 2008

A friend asked if I could make a birthday cake for her husband, whose current hobby is gold panning, and her daughter, who loves horses. After some consideration I decided to whip out the glucose and make some chocolate modelling clay (you just add a little to melted chocolate, and when it cools a little (but not all the way) you can mold it like clay). My horse is possible not the most horse-like horse in the history of the universe, but hopefully it’s at least clear what it is. The gold pieces in the gold pan are just little bits of chocolate painted with gold icing paint.
