A Horse Jump Made Of Cupcakes!

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

Horse riding takes place all around the world and is a very popular hobby to take part in. This has spread into different sports, mainly show jumping and horse racing. Show jumping is great fun to watch and the way they decorate some of the jumps can make it a fun sight to behold.

In a recent show jumping competition in Washington, there was an extra unusual jump which horses completed right at the end. It was created as a 'joke' fence for them to jump as it came to a close, just as a bit of fun, and it certainly looked like it would be because it was made of cupcakes! They must have had to make an announcement at the beginning to stop jockeys from rushing out to sneak a sample; I know I would have been tempted too!

Cupcakes have really started to become popular over recent years and have taken over in the style stakes of large cakes. These mini versions are easy to just pick up and eat and can still carry elaborate designs. People today often choose having cupcakes over a large wedding cake, or they choose to have them together. Having a cupcake tower display with a large cake at the top, featuring a design that tie the two different sizes together is a very popular choice.

With cupcakes you can create a more diverse flavour range. With a large cake you can only stick to one flavour or a combination of a couple that go together, such as coffee and walnut. With cupcakes you can let your taste buds take over your cooking and make many different flavours. From simple tastes such as chocolate or vanilla, to something a bit different such as pumpkin or peanut butter! Everybody has their own favourite flavour and as cake batter is just a few simple ingredients to put together, right at the end you could split it out into different bowls and add different flavours to each. You will then have an array of tastes that everybody will be able to pick a favourite from.

You may be thinking what a waste of cake having it made into a jump! However these horses are well-trained and the jump was made for them to easily fly over. After a quick inspection for mud and removing the 'top layer' of cupcakes they were ready to eat. Many of the crowd rushed down at the end of the show and were lucky enough to enjoy a delicious cupcake. They could go home and tell family and friends that they really were a part of the show!
