Hi,

I'm making a cake for my friend's daughter who is turning 5. She wants the theme to be centered around her daughter's favorite toy - a ratty looking black and white dog. I've asked my friend repeatedly for a pic of the dog but am still waiting.

I was thinking of making a fondant figurine of the dog that will be holding a "happy birthday" sign on top of the cake. My friend wants the cake to be pretty and feminine so I was planning to make a 2-tier (6 and 8 inch) round cakes covered in pale pink BC, but I'm at a loss for cute details to put on the cake. I was thinking of putting some small gumpaste pink and white flowers around the base of both tiers.

I need some suggestions for what else to put on it. Pink dog bones?

black and white doggie bones!!

those go great w/ pink and so 50s retro too!

and don't forget pawprints!!!

bones and pawprints could spell out the message even!

Paw prints!!!!!!! I knew there was something I was missing!

So black and white dog on top, pale pink BC with black and white bones and paw prints sounds good?

A rhinestone collar for the bottom of the cake if you're not in the mood to make flowers?
