Coolest Puppy Dog Cake 37

Puppy Dog Cake

Puppy Dog Cake

I made this puppy dog cake for my son's first birthday since he loves our two pet dogs.

First, I baked a two layer 12 inch round cake and iced it in blue buttercream icing. Black icing was used for the paw prints and I used fondant letters to spell my child's name on the front of the cake.

Next, I used the Wilton Stand up bear pan to create the dog figure. I used Twinkies cut in half for the dog's back paws and snout(use a toothpick to attach the Twinkies to the cake) and then I covered the entire dog in brown icing using a star shaped tip.

For the ears I used fondant cutouts and draped them over the upright ears of the bear figurine. I used black icing for the mouth, eyes and nose. I created the front paws and legs by building up icing until the shape of the legs and paws became apparent. Next I created the dog's party hat by covering an ice cream cone in blue icing and attaching a number 1 made of fondant. As a final touch I added a fondant tail to the dog!

The cake was quite large so I had plenty of leftovers for our guests to take home. We finished the theme of the party with dog plates and napkins with paw prints.

Coolest Westie Dog Cake Design 89

I made this Westie Dog Cake Design yesterday, a simple sponge cake with icing. The dog was a little harder to decorate than I first thought. I hoped to pipe the hair onto him but I didn't do that properly so I ended up sticking little white feathers on it but it looked OK in the end.

It was a birthday cake I made for my sister-in-law, their Westie is male so that's why I made it in blue. I don't have any cake decorating experience really, I used to watch my mum make her cakes before she sadly passed away ten years ago. Think she would be proud of my efforts.

Thank You
by: Fiona

Thank you for your kind words, It's my 30th this year so I'm hoping to get on a course I've seen, 5 day intense cake making/decorating course. Makes me feel close to mum knowing I have a bit of her talent. My friend is due her baby any day now and I have a great idea for a cot cake with a baby in it so once I've done that will, if all goes well I will add it to the site, fantastic site for ideas and inspiration x

Homemade Westie Dog Cake

This Westie Dog Cake was done for a friend who bred West Highland terriers. I made a basic Madeira and cut a rectangle for the body and a smaller one for the head.

They were held together with butter cream and then the whole cake covered in butter cream before covering with white fondant icing. I made the ears and positioned them before piping royal icing over the body to make the hairs. Added black for eyes and nose and blanket and bone etc.

Homemade Schnauzer Birthday Cake

I made this homemade Schnauzer birthday cake for my brother-in-law's birthday. They have 4 schnauzers.

I used a loaf pan for the body and a 9" round pan to cut out the legs, tail, and top of head. I used rice krispie cookies for the ears and black jelly beans for the eyes and nose. The beard and mustache is just icing. I star tipped the entire cake to create the hair look.

They really liked this homemade Schnauzer birthday cake.

We used the Pampered Chef batter bowl that is generally used to make the 3-D princess Barbie cake for this Puppy Dog Cake. We iced it, used cookies for eyes, a Hershey's kiss for the nose and an Airhead for the tongue. The ears are brownies.
