Homemade Basset Hound Cake

I used a 9 inch round cut in half and set upright stuck together with frosting for the body of the Basset Hound Cake. I used another smaller round for the back legs, and yet another small round for the tail piece (extra left on this one to add needed shapes later).

I used a pampered chef prep bowl, cut in four equal pieces for the feet, and another cut in half for the snout. I used half of the Wilton small ball pan for the head with a small round piece of cake added to the top for more height. I used some of the extra pieces of cake to form the left front leg coming from behind the body.

I then crumb coated the cake and set in the freezer over night. The eyebrows and ears were made from pre-made fondant. I used vanilla, fudge, and milk chocolate frosting to decorate the cake. I made the red ball from extra pieces of cake.

Adorable..
by: Susan Delaney

This is the CUTEST cake I have ever seen. The eye's look so real. Is this something you do for a living? How did you do the eyes, is that just frosting? Super impressive.

Answers
by: Missy

I used a small star tip for the fur. the eyes are just frosting, I used a larger circle tip for the white and a tiny round tip for the pupil and black around the bottom of the eyes.

Coolest Basset Hound 50th Birthday Cake 65

Homemade Basset Hound 50th Birthday Cake

Homemade Basset Hound 50th Birthday Cake

This Basset Hound 50th Birthday Cake was made for my friend's aunt's 50th birthday. I used a 9 inch round for the body, halved and put together upright. I used pampered chef prep bowls for the legs. The head was made with half of the Wilton small ball pan. I used another small round cake to cut the tail piece and a round piece added to the face for the snout.

After putting the pieces together with frosting and skewers, I froze it over night. I crumb coated the cake and froze again for about an hour. I used a star tip to frost the cake with vanilla and milk chocolate frosting. I colored some of the vanilla a lighter brown color. I used MMF for the nose and ears. I also used left over pieces to make the red dog toy, with red colored vanilla frosting.

The recipient was very pleased with her cake. I like it too!

Coolest Husky Dog Cake 100

Homemade Husky Dog Cake

Homemade Husky Dog Cake

This Husky Dog Cake is drawn on a 14 inch square white cake. The little boy who lives down the road loves the breed of dog called Husky. This is the only thing he wanted for his birthday.

The cake itself is quite simple, it is basic iced with white all I did was use a coloring page of a husky dog, traced the dog with black icing onto wax paper and then flipped it onto the cake rubbing the back of the wax paper to transfer the image. The rest was just filled in with a star tip 16 and a round 8 tip for the eyes.

Coolest Puppy Birthday Cake 49

Homemade Puppy Birthday Cake

Homemade Puppy Birthday Cake

This Puppy Birthday Cake was for a little boy's 1st birthday. I sculpted the whole thing out of all different sized and shaped cakes. I held it together with dowel rods and toothpicks. Be sure to keep a tally of all toothpicks you use so you can count them while serving the cake to be sure nobody gets hurt!

I used pound cake because this cake had an hour's drive to the party and I wanted to be sure it held. I used the grass tip for the fur and a writing tip for the eyes, nose, and mouth. For the hat I frosted a sugar cone.
