Any ideas would be great. I've been asked for a 30th Birthday Cake for a girl who grooms dogs. She herself is Dog mad and owns 2 Boxers.

I think a tiered cake with a picket fence around the bottom layers would be cute. You could do chocolate transfers of all different breeds running around, peeking from behind the fence, etc. On the top I would find someway to do one boxer lying down and one sitting. Just an idea! Maybe it'll start some other ideas going for ya! HTH

what about a 3d dog cake? I've see a couple of them in the gallery and those look realy cute.

I don't know how big the cake has to be, but you could make 2 boxer dogs from fondant or cut 2 silhouettes of 2 boxers and have them holding a banner saying "Happy Birthday (her name)".

Also could make some grooming tools and even some boxing gloves to place on and around the cake. Make some squares cut from fondant to look like business cards...with her grooming business name on them and place those also on the cake.

Here is a link to a web site, where you might be able to find the dog shilhouettes. http://www.fundraw.com/clipart/categories/Animals/Silhouettes/00000005

Hope this can help you out, good luck!

Thanks everyone for the idea's. Its only a one tier cake, I thought I might get away with doing cartoon type dogs than trying to replicate a boxer... but no they want Boxers!!!

The clipart will come in handy for checking them against as I make them. Might go with the mini tools and some dog nametags around the side. I like the idea of them holding a banner.

At the minute I'm kinda edging towards maybe having herself sitting on the side of the cake with a boxer either side. Maybe the Happy 30th Banner then held over her.... I don't know, lol. Will post it when I decide, its for the 24th so if I start modelling now I'll work it out as it goes along.

Thanks.

I would love to see your boxers when you have finish, being that we are boxer lovers, have had and raised boxers for the last 30 years.
