I used a 9 inch round cut in half and set upright stuck together with frosting for the body of the Basset Hound Cake. I used another smaller round for the back legs, and yet another small round for the tail piece (extra left on this one to add needed shapes later).
I used a pampered chef prep bowl, cut in four equal pieces for the feet, and another cut in half for the snout. I used half of the Wilton small ball pan for the head with a small round piece of cake added to the top for more height. I used some of the extra pieces of cake to form the left front leg coming from behind the body.
I then crumb coated the cake and set in the freezer over night. The eyebrows and ears were made from pre-made fondant. I used vanilla, fudge, and milk chocolate frosting to decorate the cake. I made the red ball from extra pieces of cake.
