I'm so intrigued with the dog cakes on here and I would love a tutorial on how it's done. I know how to make the ones where you cut two 9" pans, but would love how to make the one like Elisa Strauss makes. My big question is how to do the head. Anyone willing to share a step by step on the entire process?

Anyone? Dog head? Tutorial? Do you make it out of cake, RKT?

Do you mean the one where the dog is lying down, like my avatar? I forget who, but she put pictures of the cake carved before it was iced on here, and that's the only way I figured out how to do it. I still need more practice. There are some other styles, though, too.

The dog in your avatar is the one I already know how to do. I was wondering how to do the dogs that are laying down, but their heads are up. I hope that makes sense. icon_redface.gif

Oh, and they are covered with fondant.

Duff did one on Ace of Cakes, and you can get the whole season, I believe at Target for about $20.

Well . . . I did a dog, or atleast it was supposed to be a dog. It is just the head and no body, but I just stacked some cakes and started cutting. My friend loved it but, I have a long way to go!! The brown icing on the cake is kind of dark and you can't see the ears and stuff. The ears and mouth area are fondant. So is his spiked collar.

You can see the dog in my photos. I never can get my images small enough to attach here.

Good luck when you try it!!
