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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paula1234, could you send me the directions as well? And maybe a photo of your cake? I would love to make this for my son, that is his favorite dog!!
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.
That is the cutest dachshund cake I have ever seen!! It captures dachshunds perfectly!!!!!!
I just can't believe it was done for a first communion! lol. Lucky little girl who gets to have a different kind of design for her first communion.
email@example.com I would love the instructions also. They too are my favorite type of dog. Thank you in advance.
That is adorable! It even looks like a mommy dog. All I need is a baby dog to go with it! Yes, please! I would LOVE the instructions. firstname.lastname@example.org. This is so nice of you!
