Well , my  grandchildren always allow me to make their birthday cakes. Alexis wanted a dog with lots of friends. So a big yellow dog was designed. I am not a pro so I gather ideas everywhere but mostly from your site. It took 3 dh butter box mixes. One for a 13x 9 base, one for a duck mold  and 1 for misc. 8 inch and 3 inch falls mall ice cream cones.

The nose , paws and tail were cut from a frozen 8 in pan. The dog dish was the small pan scooped out  and after frosting filled with coco puffs. The base had a green base with grass piped on. The ears were sliced off the bottom of the duck cake.
