Today we made a sweet puppy cake tutorial for you!
We were having trouble deciding on just what to make in the blog today–(Why can’t I be one of those organized bloggers who has posts planned out weeks in advance!) Anyway, this morning we jumped from lion to stork to beach to CLOWN (we were all over the place) and finally landed on puppy! Who doesn’t love a sweet puppy?
I hope that you agree! I love simple and sweet, and ideas that would be great for both little boys and little girls! So…if you’re ready, lets dive into a bowl of puppy cuteness~
First, I frosted a 6″, two layer cake with vanilla buttercream.
Next, I tinted some of my fondant with ivory coloring, rolled it out on a lightly greased countertop, and cut out a 3 1/2 inch circle.
While my fondant was still soft, I used a toothpick to draw my puppy’s mouth. You could also just pipe it on or use an edible marker. I also used the sharp point of the toothpick to give him “freckles”.
I added small little black fondant eyes and a nose. You can improvise with buttercream, candy pieces, etc. if you’d rather not use fondant. I brushed the nose with a little stroke of light corn syrup for shine.
Next, puppy ears! I kneaded a little tylose into some chocolate fondant so that they would dry more quickly. I rolled out the fondant, cut out 2 1/2 inch circles and slightly elongated them. You could leave them floppy–or you could pipe chocolate candy melts/candy coating ear shapes onto parchment paper and chill until set. Our little guy is starting to come together!
But in the end, I stuck to the original design :0) …and we’re DONE!! Woo hoo!!
Thanks for stopping by, see you next time!
