I got the idea for the dogs on this Puppy Birthday Cake from the Wal-Mart bakery. They had small, loaf pan cakes and the whole loaf had been decorated like one of these puppies. They used very light whipped cream style frosting so there are some variations. The minute I saw them I thought of my niece, Faith. Almost two years later, after I had started dabbling in cake decorating, I tried it. For the dogs I used two mini loaf pan cakes to make up the bodies and then used a large star tip for the fur.
