My sister asked me to make a cake for a friend's baby shower. The friend loves (and owns) dachshunds. I was thinking of making it look like a dog basket with a mommy and baby dachshund. Has anyone made one of these little dogs out of gumpaste? Any tips or pics? Failing that - any other advice?

I have made these before and it is really easy. I actually own 2 myself, a miniature black and tan and a wired haired, that looks like willy nelson. I will try my best to e-mail the instructions to you if you will send me your e-mail address. my email address is pgreeson@charter.net.

I can only give you samples of them on a cake. Sometimes you can figure them out better if you see a photo done by someone else:


Since it is for a baby shower, it should maybe done with soft colors.
