This cake is a fondant covered, chocolate mud cake. Everything you see, except the poles and ribbon, are edible. I don't make my own fondant I use Orchard's ready to roll fondant.

The horses and other details are done in modelling paste and royal icing. The top and middle of the carousel are made from pastillage.

There is something about carousels that I just love. Here on the mid north coast of NSW, Australia, we didn't have carousels at our local show (faire) just merry go rounds which are a totally different thing. I used to see the big carousels in movies and tv shows and think how wonderful they were. All those horses with their embellishments and bows or the ones that had unicorns, or other fantasy animals. The artistry that went into those pieces is just amazing!

OMG this is fantastic!!! I am also in love with Carousels, for me that was on of the best parts of our trip to Paris, they are everywhere there! Could you perchance make me one for my birthday, of course you would have to cme to Canada as I doubt it would make the trip... lol Totally hitting "this rocks"  Grin
