This was a college graduation cake for someone who loves boxer dogs. The cake itself was a 14″ round 4″ high vanilla pound cake with a chocolate ganache filling. I put a red fondant ribbon at the base with the name of the college piped on it with royal icing. I also added a fondant diploma and mortar board.
The star of the cake was the dog. I sculpted the dog out of fondant and hand painted it with edible food paint. I made the dog about four days in advance to let it fully dry. Though made of edible materials, the dog was not meant to be eaten. I hope you enjoy my homemade boxer dog cake.
