    I was a little surprised that they got the reins wrong and also the hind legs wrong - they do enough animals that they know what hind legs look like on a quadruped. Still, the overall effect was AMAZING and the jumps and the field were spectacular.

    I did love that the horse had an ear net.

    Whoever you are, we hope you enjoyed it!

    Elena had a terrible time with the horse falling over and the legs breaking off -- so if the legs look a little funky that may be why...

    They've done another couple of cakes featuring horses that were on the show: one a Cinderella horse-drawn carriage (at first the scale was wrong, so they had to redo the "skeleton" --- "Argh! Godzilla the horse!!"), and another was a wedding cake with the bride's two horses on each side eating the cake.

    I've seemed to notice that Charm City can't get horses quite right...they do pretty much EVERYTHING else perfectly though! Maybe they need an equestrian staff member.

    I just didn't like that there was only one horse on the cake. If I was getting a horse-themed cake......I'd want lots of horses on it.

    I'm sure that was the horse in the picture.

    I agree lots of horses would be good: a herd of horses galloping across a cake would be very cool!

    Hi all,
    After seeing the show and looking at the rider, I think it could be billionaire Bob Johnson's daughter Paige. But who knows...

    It's been said multiple times that it wasn't for a daughter, but a wife rather.

    Dead assed wrong. Those "pastrychefs" do some of the most detailed work I've ever seen, and do an incredible job of it. The mask of King Tut cake was so close to the original, even the museum curators were shocked.

    Someone was clearly looking at a bad photo. I can't see Geoff or Mary or any of the others pulling a stunt like that.

    Elena was the one who did the King Tut cake.
