A vintage rocking horse makes an adorable cake topper or party theme for a baby shower or a litttle boy or girl’s naming day/christening. A classic toy, the rocking horse’s popularity has endured through generations of new gizmos and high tech children’s toys as an all time favourite for both little boys and girls alike.

Zoe’s Fancy Cakes have a tutorial here for a super cute rocking horse cake topper for baby cakes: rocking horse cake topper tutorial.
