I wanted to make my boy/girl twins second birthday as special as their first. As tradition holds passed down from my mom, I plan to make and decorate all their cakes until they ask me not to! It adds an extra special touch. I decided to do the Clifford the Big Red Dog theme.
I researched the Clifford the big Red Dog cake on this site for ideas. That’s where I picked up the idea to use the Wilton lazy dog cake pan-it worked perfectly. I also purchased the Wilton house cake pan-it can be used for a dog house, a princess house, a Christmas house, etc.
The base of the cake was two sheet cakes put together and piped with green frosting for the grass. I put Clifford on top, and then his dog house. I also made Cleo cut out cookies and put one in front of the dog house. I used a box cake mix because honestly everyone loves that, with the addition of a packet of pudding mix, as recommended to make the cake more stable. I use the Wilton buttercream frosting recipe which is delicious-by far greater tasting than store bought!
The cake was a huge hit and I was a proud mommy!
