Doggy Birthday

I have decided I love doing cakes for little girls - probably because I have 2 of my own - I especially like it when the parents choose a particular theme that is special to the child as it makes the cake so much more personal.
This design was modelled on little Lilias' favourite teddy from M&S - in 'real' life this teddy is different shades of brown but to make the cake more girly I was asked to make the doggy in pink.
The overall design of the cake was to be simple and no fuss as so many people are going for, therefore why just a ribbon round the base of the cake.

Aw, that's adorable! How did you make the puppy?

Thanks cheryl. I first modelled the puppy with sugarpaste and then pushed his'fur' through a sieve. I mixed dark and light pink together but didn't blend all together to get the different colours. Hx

This is so cute that I think I need a moment--I may swoon!! What a lovely design and great coordination--not to mention a steady hand--you have!
