Seems the world loves little horsies, so here's how I made the cute little one from Samantha's birthday cake!
First, here's what we need:
Put it all together with fondant glue (a little pinch of tylose powder in a couple of teaspoons of water) or water. The larger cones are the hind legs, the smaller in the front.

This is Samantha's 2nd birthday cake. Samantha is the cutest little girl who loves farm animals and books, so that's what her cake is - animals and books.
The cake is a 2-tier double layer cake, with 2 layers of orange cake and 2 layers of raspberry-pomegranate with raspberry/ Bavarian creme filling.
The little piggie ended up looking so sad, I felt bad for him, but it was so cute I decided to keep him that way.
My new obsession is flavored fondant, but I found out the hard way that once the flavoring is added it gets a lot harder to work with. After a lot of trying (and failing!) I found that mixing a little Wilton pre-made fondant in there, the texture will be 100% better to work with.
The little birthday girl with her cake. She loved it!
A couple of seconds after this picture was taken, she leaned in and took a big chomp off "her own" feet.
