I have a request for a cake (under $40) where the one year old likes dogs, but the mom bought barnyard themed plates and partyware. Any cute ideas on how I could incorporate the two?

How about a barn for a doghouse with a dog poking his head out..I would ask to see the table wear so your chances of matching it would be greater!!

you could have the dog chasing some sheep or a cow or some piggies

a herding dog of sorts

We did one a little while ago that had several animals. All of them in different ways to keep them all interesting. For the dog, just lay down a piece of brown fondant and then shape a dog's rear legs, tail and behind so it looks like he's digging a hole. Best of all - no face to mold!

Just another idea.

I'm not sure my picture attached, so I'll try again - hopefully it's not on there 17 times icon_cry.gif

I can't see the picture! icon_sad.gif

Thanks for the ideas guys. I wish I could figure out how to make a barn, but not necessarily out of cake. I need to keep this under $40.00

Sorry, let me try again. If it still doesn't work you can click at the bottom and go to my website. It's in the gallery, under the tab "Recent Creations" called Petpourri. The dog is in the back corner, sorry it's a little hidden by the bird.

I hope I don't offend because this is none of my business, but for $40, I'd do an edible image on a 6" round and no more. But I don't know where you are located, maybe that's your area's going rate. Good luck thumbs_up.gif .
