A horse cake - maybe better described as a "cake with horses" - works for so many party themes, young and old, male and female.
Below are a few examples that are easy for DIY and fun too.

The easiest option is probably to create a sheet or round cake - whatever is easiest to serve at your party, and create a scene with icing and place the figurines on top.
You can purchase a cake decorating kit like the one shown in the image below, or you can simply put on your own figurines. Maybe something out of the toy box? If this is a cake for a child, let them help place the figurines (or at least help you decide where to put them.) I do this with my kids and they love helping design their cake this way!
If serving a cake like this with figures at a kid party, plan to have a bunch of little horses on hand. Every child there will be sure to want one (these would make great party favors!)
A cake with horses would be perfect for these parties...

My Little Pony is HUGE! And it should be - cute ponies make a cute cake. This pony cake was used for my friend Lisa when her daughter had a My Little Pony Party! The party was a huge success, and everyone loved the cake.
The cake image below uses an edible image, but you could also use toy figurines to make a special cake.
