Cake – 08.16.09

Trina wanted a weenie dog cake for one of her employee’s birthdays.  She only need it to feed five or so.  We decided to go with a chocolate cake with buttercream icing.  Usually to do sculpted cakes, I go fondant, so we thought this would be quite the challange.

First, I baked a 10″ round cake.  Ben came in and used a toothpick to draw in the silhouette of the dog for me, then we pulled out the knives and began carving.  After forming the dog, we covered the cake with reddish-brown buttercream, added the eyes, nose and the collar, and it was complete!

Many thanks to Ben for sticking this one out with me.  Your help wasand always is  much appreciated!
