My husband is asking for a dog cake for an exhibition that they are presenting in next week. Never done this before, as well as alot of other stuff I see on here. I want to attempt a Jack Russell as our beloved friend and family member was stolen away by a selfish jerk where we lived that poisoned him. I haven't been able to get over this and would love to try and remember him this way.
Any help as to where I might start, anyone done a Jack Russell or similar that would like to advise???
Hasen't Indydebi made 3-d dogs? Email (or PM) her to see if she can help you.
The only Jack Russell cake I've seen is on www.planetcake.com.au
They employ cake artists and they are very good. I think it would be a difficult cake. I've done other animals and have used a polystrene shape for the head and cake for the body.
Also, look on You Tube for "How to make a sculptured dog cake" but this isn't a Jack Russell. It took the lady 4 days to complete.
thanks thank thanks guys! I found the one on planetcake & love it!!! Will be trying it this week>
Let us know how it turns out. I'm very interested to see.
It's also good if you have a 3D dog to help you sculpt the cake - like an ornament. When I did my Rat and Cow, I had ceramic ornaments which I could turn around to get every perspective of the animals anatomy.
Photos are only good if you have lots of them taken at different angles.
I have a real Jack Russell here, I'll post him over to you!
