One of my cakes for next week is for a lady celebrating her 25th anniversary with the company my husband works for and they asked if I could make a cake. she loves dogs!! I feel at a loss, all the cakes I've seen with dogs look kind of juvenile...except I saw one of a dog sleeping on a pillow which was really cute, but I'm not sure I'm capapble of a pillow like that. Anyone have any ideas how to make a cake with dogs incorporated look more mature????

what about a cake shaped like a bone (small hearts on the ends of a long thin shape) on a billow (yes, BILLOW) of white, with jewels or something around it?

What about incorporating a doggy door and just have the back half of the dog sticking out. Maybe a collar and leash on the top and looped and hanging down. Then you could have little doggy doors all around the sides of the cake with alternating front and back halves of the dog sticking out. Maybe a saying somewhere "25 years is no walk in the park, but you made it!"

Just work from a real photo and concentrate on making the face, especially the eyes, as lifelike as you can. I have several in my pix....
