and trotters were my absolute passion.

But that is one, ugly cake.

I didnt think it was all that bad, a pretty good representation of a very large, plain silver bowl on a wooden base.

I love trotters too, but there are none out west, save for a few in California.

if you want to see an ugly cake, go look hereL http://www.cakewrecks.blogspot.com/ the duck is priceless

Cake looks like a silver cup - the fondant is a little bumpy around the chalice, but eh - I was expecting something more Trotter-y than a winner's cup :\

And speaking of Trotters, I took my fiancé to The Trotter's Museum in Goshen last Summer. He had a blast! :)

Yeah, it's really not a very exciting cake....

I love cake boss- but yeah that was a wee bit disappointing. Could have been a bit more creative than just a trophy replica.

I moved 3 of my standies out here to Cali and I think I double the population :lol: Just kidding! There aren't many on the west coast but we have Cal Expo.

Love these horses!

As to race, my pick is Manofmanymissions, sired by Yankee Glide, bred by Kentuckiana Farms.

Of course, I work for Kentuckiana Farms, so I'm biased. lol!
