Homemade Dog Cake

My ten year old daughter wanted to have a dogie themed birthday party. So I began searching online for ideas of how to make a Dog Cake and that's how I came to this website for a little inspiration. I have decorated my children's cakes every year, each one unique and special to them.

I began this cake with a loaf pan, six cupcakes, two large marshmallows and half of a banana for the tail which is secured with two toothpicks. I used butter cream frosting and tinted it with Wilton paste food colors. Hershey kiss for the nose and M&M's for the eyes. I used the Wilton tristar tip 2010 for filling in the body, tip 233 for the furry ears and tail, tip 2 for detailing of the mouth and paws, tip 47 for the collar, tip 7 and 101 for the rose placed near the ID tag, tips 7 and 81 for the flowers near back paws.

I cut out a small piece of tin foil in a heart shape for the ID tag and tip 2 for the initial. This pup was a joy to create and the big smile on my daughter's face was pure happiness.

Homemade Dog Gone Cake

Homemade Dog Gone Cake

I made this dog cake for a friend's going away party. She was going to be a dog trainer, hence the dog dish, bone (or dog bed), paw prints and fire hydrant.

I used a basic buttercream for the frosting. For the fire hydrant/dog dish and bone I used a Marshmallow fondant recipe I found on the internet and then used food coloring for the red and green. The fondant, even though it was super easy to make it was difficult getting the color I wanted. I'm not too experienced with fondant so I'm sure there was probably an easier way of doing it. I just haven't found the way to do it yet. I felt like a kid playing with Playdough. I will say that at the end of the fondant, my hands were baby soft.

I couldn't find anything that looked like a paw print at the local baking supply stores so for the paw prints, I used York Peppermint patties and Junior mints.

Finally, I bought some "the dog" rings and put them on the sides of the cake. The rings are little dog houses with pictures of different dogs.

WOW! You got talent! I thought the fire hydrant & doggie dish were toys... 'til I read the rest of the story... they're actually marshmallows! YUM!

Coolest Dog Agility Birthday Cake

Homemade  Dog Agility Birthday Cake

Homemade Dog Agility Birthday Cake

I made this Dog Agility Birthday Cake for the dog trainer at my agility dog club for her birthday. Just like my horse cake it is two layers of 11 x 13 Pyrex casserole pans ( I use Pam on the pans so cake doesn't stick). This cake is all buttercream (I made in August - so I had to keep refrigerating the cake as I worked on it).

All the dog agility equipment is homemade from Balsa wood pieces bought from Michael's craft store cut to scale, glued and painted. The dog is a Keeshound ornament bought from eBay. The paw print ribbon was bought from Jo - Ann fabrics, the dog bowl and bone and box of pedigree bones was from dollhouse furniture once again from eBay.

The tire jump is an actual dog toy from Walmart ( closest thing to size needed). The weave poles are Wilton lollipop or candy sticks and taped with colored electrical tape. It was A LOT of fun to make this cake, took about a week to make the wood pieces, to glue and paint, but I did not work on it everyday.

questions about my cake
by: Kandice

Sorry its been so long since I've been on this site. ALot of family stuff going on ...
I made the tunnel out of fabric from Michaels as if you were gonna make a windbreaker that kind of material. Inside the tunnel is a hard piece of wire that i shaped after it was on a bottle for awhile to get the form & then I slightly glued with fabric glue once it was inside the material to keep it from shifting.
It was a fun one to design! I have not had any time lately for a new cake design. I'll try to check back more often. Thanks for the comments on my cake much appreciated! :)
