I had a lot of fun this weekend making a birthday cake for a puppy’s first birthday. I normally make cakes for people who are looking for something very specific, but this time I got to come up with my own ideas. I decided to make a dog dish out of a two layer round cake. I covered the whole cake in marshmallow fondant and then cut a hole in the middle of the fondant on top. After cutting away the fondant I added a layer of frosting and malt balls to look like dog food. I used a different color fondant to cut out the letters in the dog’s name and attached them with royal icing. For the cupcakes, I piped the paw prints with royal icing on waxed paper and added them the next morning. I had a lot of fun making this cake and I love the way everything turned out. Happy first birthday Truffles!
