  2. Hi Natalie--thanks for your ideas! Do you have a website or link that you could post to the puppy made of two cupcakes? Sounds very cute.

    Hey Natalie, I had seen this on cakecentral before ...haven't tried it though but thought I'd share: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-365353.html - not as cute as the puppy in a purse :D

  6. Natalie--those are cute cakes!! I love the puppy coming out of the purse. For something like that, I would either use a carved cake "mound" for the head, or make a rice cereal treat head. I would dowel beneath it either way. Then just use a grass/hair tip or star tip to create the fur, and black fondant or icing to create the eyes and nose, etc. The front legs could be made from fondant, rice cereal treats, or even cake that is also frosted over.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe we can work this into a tutorial eventually--but if you try it first, let us know how it goes! :0)
