|The completed cake :)|
|First some stacked and filled sheet cakes... foam board on top so I could add |
cake for the neck back and shoulders of the dog
|The cake with the addition of layers for the back of the dog|
|Carved to create silhouette of the dog|
|A few from the back|
|So here's where I left a few steps out... I added rice krispie treats to shape the tail and the legs and then covered the entire cake with fondant. I used a small fondant tool to make fur marks in the fondant.|
|Ice the head and place it in the fridge to firm up. You can use gloved hands to smooth the icing into all the crevices and curves once the icing is cold and firm.|
|He's starting to come to life now! I used black fondant to make the eyes, |
nose and mouth, and some pink inside the ears.
|This was the step I was scared to death to start... it actually went very smoothly and took hardly any time at all. I used the airbrush starting with light coatings and went over it several times.|
|Adding the black might have been even more scary... a hard thing to fix if you mess it up. Again, though... it went well and the final effect was really cool.|
|Here he is... finished with collar and doggie treats...|
