Homemade Bulldog Birthday Cake

A friend asked me to make her son's fifth birthday cake. He wanted a Green Bulldog! The school he goes to has a bulldog mascot and, after researching bulldog cakes and images online, I found this image, which I enlarged, for the cake.

I used a 10" round pan and made a marble cake by combining yellow and chocolate fudge cake mixes together. I then used chocolate pudding filling between the layers and canned white frosting for a base coat.

I drew the bulldog image freehand onto the cake and then outlined it with Wilton black frosting, using a #5 tip. I then used the Wilton buttercream recipe for the gray and green frosting, filling in the bulldog and his collar with a #16 star tip.

I put dog bone and puppy dog prints on the side of the cake with the little boy's name. The dog tag on the collar also had the letter B written on it, the first initial of the little boy's name.

Over all it was a pretty easy cake to make! He loved it!

Homemade Bulldog Cake

I have been decorating cakes for a couple of years now, and my cousin asked me to make the groom's cake for her wedding, as a wedding gift to them. The groom is a vet and has a lovable bulldog named Jax. He asked me if I could make a cake version of Jax, and, although a bit nervous, I decided I would try.

I made the cake in a Wilton large square pan, cut it in half and sculpted the dog's body. I then made a cake in my pampered chef large glass mixing bowl and attached it to the body with dowels.

The cake was a homemade carrot cake, with homemade cream cheese frosting topped by homemade marshmallow fondant in brown and white. The mouth, nose and ears were all made with colored fondant. It turned out great and they loved it!

What a neat cake! I can't believe you have only been doing it this such a short time. Do you have your own bakery or do this out of your home? It's an amazing cake. Good Job!

Coolest Boxer Dog Cake 70

Homemade Boxer Dog Cake

Homemade Boxer Dog Cake

This was a college graduation cake for someone who loves boxer dogs. The cake itself was a 14" round 4" high vanilla pound cake with a chocolate ganache filling. I put a red fondant ribbon at the base with the name of the college piped on it with royal icing. I also added a fondant diploma and mortar board.

The star of the cake was the dog. I sculpted the dog out of fondant and hand painted it with edible food paint. I made the dog about four days in advance to let it fully dry. Though made of edible materials, the dog was not meant to be eaten. I hope you enjoy my homemade boxer dog cake.

Thank you,

Boxer Cake
by: mommaof2boxers

This boxer cake is extremely amazing. The creator of this cake is by far one of the most talented artists I have ever had the blessing to gaze upon their cakes. If you don't, you definitely need to do this for a living. Wonderful likeness. As you can see by my name. I am the mommy of two amazing boxers. Dozer my white, full-blooded 6 yr. old male and Taz my brindle, full-blooded 3 yr. old female. Wonderful breed of dog. Amazing cake!

My son asked for a dog for his forth birthday. I love animals but with him and his twin (at the time-two year old) brothers I just couldn't give him what he wanted so instead he ended up with this Homemade Carved Doggie Birthday Cake. It's one of my favorite cakes I've created.

I sculpted the head out of rice cripy treats and covered it with fondant. The body is stacked and carved cake. I came up with a cool technique for the fur. I swirled dark brown dye into tan buttercream icing enough to create a muti-colored icing then painted onto the dogs body with a wide bristled basting brush.

It was awesome!
