advice, please!

i discovered my camera, stashed in a tote bag hanging in my room - i have no recollection of putting it there. that seems to be happening more and more these days. sigh. old age sucks.

anyways, i am still working on the cake - that horse is proving really difficult! partially because i am trying to make a grey dappled pony, and i can't get the depth and all that i would in brown. but, i have a back up plan if this fails. i can't disappoint a 6 year old birthday girl at her own cowgirl party.

but be honest with me - how dumb is my horse?

here's my backup pony:

i'm thinking she may be riding the top of this cake. i've sent pics to her mom so she can may the final decision, i don't want any tears or tantrums when the cake isn't what she thought she was getting. the birthday girl - not the mom! i also know that i put waaay too much importance on these cakes - tomorrow night this will be a tummy ache and fond memory for the party goers. so, back to work, keep entering contests below!

I like the cutesy one in the hat, but both are really good!! I understand about not wanting to do something for a family thinks that if I do some great (in their eyes of course) that I must LOVE doing it and am expected to do it over and over and over and...well you get it! I think that is why I do so many DIFFERENT things with my sewing, I don't want to get bored with one thing and not want to do it anymore!! Your cakes are awesome! Take a break when you can!
