Dog Cake

Dog Cake

It was coming up to my 29th birthday and my 3 year old wanted me to make a cake! We searched the internet for cakes and we came across Spot the Dog! She insisted I make a Spot the Dog Cake! I copied the picture and free hand a copy onto some baking paper. I then cut the copy out. I baked a plain vanilla cake in a rectangle slab tin.

After the cake cooled I placed the traced copy cut out onto the slab and cut around it. I made some butter icing using 125g butter, 1 1/2cups icing sugar and 2 tablespoons milk. I divided the icing into 3 sections and coloured as required - blue for the present, tan for SPOT and brown for the outline.

I iced the present first then the body followed by the piped brown outline and eyes, tail and large SPOT on the body. I used a marshmallow cut in half for the mouth. I put some smarties onto the present to make it look pretty!

My daughter loved the cake and especially loved eating the left over smarties!

My first attempt making a 3-D dog birthday cake. Surfed the internet for ideas on how to make a doggy cake, and this is how the cake looked like.

Shane loves chocolate cake and he loves animals, so I baked a big batch of chocolate cakes, used a 6" inch heart shaped pan for the dog's "face", 2 loaf pans 5" x7" cut into 4 equal sized pieces, later cut and made them roundish, for the paws, a 13" x 9" for the dog's body, some pieces of cut out cake, used one for the tail.

I used fondant for the dog's snout/nose, tongue and eyes. Iced with buttercream, used different shades of brown colors for the dog's "fur".

Off pink/white fondant, cut and shaped like a dog bone, used buttercream icings for the birthday greeting.

Somehow, to me, the cake looked more like a fuzzy brown bear laying on its belly with its 4 paws sticking out, or looked like a brown dog? Shane seemed to think its a fuzzy brown dog, not a fuzzy brown bear.

I have been doing cakes for almost 20 years and I think this is a great job. I think it looks like my Pekingese when they lay down to sleep. Again
Great JOB.

I was asked to do a dog birthday cake as a surprise for one of the manager's in my work for a 50th birthday. As she doesn't have any children, her dog is like her baby so I was really nervous about getting this right. I had no idea how I was going to tackle this one as I had never done anything like it before. I was given a black and white picture and a description of the color and left to my own imagination.

I baked a square cake, then just started carving and hoped for the best! She was so happy when she saw the cake....she thought it was a teddy at first sitting on her desk!

She loved the cake so much that she took a picture of her dog beside it (if this was any other dog I think the cake would be gone the second it was sat down beside it) and took it to show all her friends and family. I still don't think she's ate it!

I love making cakes for my children's birthdays, but haven't gotten up the nerve to try a 3D cake yet. I made this cake for my baby girl's first birthday.

I made this dog cake in a 8 in square pan and frosted it with pink icing. I drew the dog picture freehand on paper, then cut it out and traced around it on to the cake with black icing. I drew the eyes on, added coconut for the fur, then drew the nose and added a cut strawberry for the tongue. The bow was made out of ribbon. I used the same ribbon in making her birthday hat.

Instead of drawing, you could easily print a clip art or coloring book dog to the size you need. If you prefer a brown dog, you can toast the coconut to your desired color. This cake was a big hit, and was not difficult to do!

Found this site and was thrilled. Cakes are great. Especially loved the square cake with pink icing and dog drawn on it.
Thanks, this will make my daughters new rescue dog's shower a success.
