This is a Puppy Dog Birthday Cake I made for my niece’s birthday. She had asked me to make her a cake with a dog and a bone on it. This is what I came up with.
I made all the fondant first and shaped the dogs and let dry a couple of days prior to baking the cake. I dyed the fondant using the gel food coloring. This is a two layer cake with butter cream icing in between the layers and covering the whole cake. Then covered in the green fondant. I then placed the dogs into position on the cake and made sprouts of grass by squeezing fondant through my garlic press and cutting it off with a butter knife and placing it on the cake.
Everything is secured using butter cream icing. The dirt around the one dog digging is chocolate sprinkles bought from the bulk store, again secured by pressing them into the butter cream icing. The bones are made of candy and I got them out of those little garbage cans you can by with candy shapes in them. Sorry cant remember what it is called.
The garbage cans are pink, purple etc. I found them at the bulk barn. The icing around the bottom is butter cream dyed pink. The little paw prints are actually little stickers, which were removed before serving.
This was a fun cake, and my niece really enjoyed it.
