Here's a Homemade Blue Dog Birthday Cake Design I made my stepdaughter for her 8th birthday. I used two 8" round pans. I cut the face from one and the big ol' ears from the the other. There was just enough to snack on for my wife and I while I constructed it. It seems like it always takes more icing for one of these cakes. I just spread the two colors on with a butter knife being real careful around the edges. We didn't want it to look exactly like, "Blue" but did like the really bright teal color.

The accessories are leftover candy from the Christmas parade a few weeks prior. I rolled out the tootsie rolls for the ring around his eye, and the dots on his face, or I guess her face. The nose and eyes are a Hershey bar I carved with a serrated steak knife. And the tongue and bow are pieces of "extra" bubble gum flattened with a rolling pin and cut with kitchen shears.

She really loved it and wanted the nose for her piece. And other kids at her party wanted the middle with the tongue. After all the guests were gone, and the face was all but destroyed, I pushed the two sides together and smoothed the icing with a knife and "recycled" it's face with a bag of small marshmallows for hot chocolate. The result was,"spazzy the rabbit" pictured also.

I don't know any real tips to give about trying to recreate this here dog, but try drawing what you want to make first and I always use a knife dipped in warm water to smoother the icing. Everyone may already do that I just think it gives a real smooth look to everything.

Coolest Pug Cupcake 69

Homemade Pug Cupcake

Homemade Pug Cupcake

I made these cupcakes for my friend's Pugs Birthday! I Got the idea from a book called "Hello Cupcake". They have really cute ideas and lots of different dog breeds. The ingredients were simple and easy to find.

The ears are rolled out tootsie rolls, and the tongue is a pink Starburst candy rolled and shaped! The eyes are black m&ms and the nose is a chocolate covered blueberry. The black muzzle and mole are just made out of piped black icing. We made the teeth out of white icing as well!

After they were baked it took us about 2 hours or so to decorate them. Once you get all the tootsie rolls and Starbust rolled out it goes pretty fast. Our house was kind of warm that day we made them so we ended up sticking the tootsie roll ears in the freezer/fridge to harden them up before placing them on the cupcakes!

This homemade pug cupcake turned out really cute and I would definitely recommend making them for anyone who is a Pug Lover.

Fancy Nancy Dog Cake

Fancy Nancy Dog Cake

My daughter loves Fancy Nancy and dogs so I thought I would make her a dog cake of the stuffed dog from Fancy Nancy and the Posh puppy. It was a big hit! I made a yellow butter cake from scratch and also a buttercream frosting. I bought the fondant and spray painted it(food coloring spray of course).

I used rice crispy treats for the front paws, head and ears. My husband helped sculpt the nose, eyes, bone, and #2 out of fondant. The cake is four layers sculpted into the shape of the body and the hind legs. The tail is made from fondant wrapped around floral wire.

I hand painted anything black that you see, which actually didn't dry all the way and got smudged in the morning from little hands as you can see on the ear. This was a really fun cake to make and fun to eat too!
