This cake was my first Snoopy cake made for a friend’s daughter who loves Snoopy. I covered a 12” cake board in green fondant and set aside to dry out.
For the cake, I baked 4 oblong cakes filled with buttercream and jam. Before crumb coating, I shaped the top for the roof and only after that I crumb coated. Then, I coloured some fondant red and covered the whole cake. Next, using my scribe tool, I drew on a wood design.
Cutting the Snoopy Cake
I cut out the shape for the roof. I cut a thin oblong for the centre top and two larger oblongs for the sides of roof. Then, I attached the top one but left the other two to dry out for about one hour before attaching to the cake. Next, I brushed black-edible dust over the kennel to make the wood effect stand out.
I cut out a black oval for the front of the kennel and made a Snoopy sign for the front of the kennel.
On each side of the cake I modeled the grass and added some flowers. Then I cut out a plaque and added a name. I added plaque with happy birthday written on it and attached to the cake board.
Now, to make Snoopy, I used white modeling paste. I shaped the head adding a black nose and ears. Next I made the body, legs and arms and attached them into place. Next, I made Woodstock out of yellow modeling paste.
The Snoopy cake was well received. I love it when I can make something I’ve never made before.
