My ten year old daughter wanted to have a dogie themed birthday party. So I began searching online for ideas of how to make a Dog Cake and that’s how I came to this website for a little inspiration. I have decorated my children’s cakes every year, each one unique and special to them.
I began this cake with a loaf pan, six cupcakes, two large marshmallows and half of a banana for the tail which is secured with two toothpicks. I used butter cream frosting and tinted it with Wilton paste food colors. Hershey kiss for the nose and M&M’s for the eyes. I used the Wilton tristar tip 2010 for filling in the body, tip 233 for the furry ears and tail, tip 2 for detailing of the mouth and paws, tip 47 for the collar, tip 7 and 101 for the rose placed near the ID tag, tips 7 and 81 for the flowers near back paws.
I cut out a small piece of tin foil in a heart shape for the ID tag and tip 2 for the initial. This pup was a joy to create and the big smile on my daughter’s face was pure happiness.
