Dog-themed cakes that is.
These doghouses were for a 6th birthday party for twins; so while they had to be similar, they also had to be different. All I can say is thank goodness for different color and taste preferences! Both cakes were buttercream with fondant detailing; the puppies were modeled from gumpaste.
Here's a closer look at the pups. This was my first time to try making dogs from gumpaste or fondant and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm quite pleased with the way they turned out. (Still room for improvement though!)
