I made a dog shaped cake for my friends birthday. She adopts dogs constantly.. I knew she had to have a dog cake. After many searches I decided to try this out. I used a round cake cut in half for the body, a 6 inch round cut in half for the head. I used twinkies for the feet, I used excess cake for the tail. I used a buttercream frosting tinted w/ cocoa powder for the fur. She loved the cake. She really didn’t want to cut it..
