have you tried doing a search. How big is the cake? Ace of Cakes did one a while back but he had plywood going and so on. A lot of his dog was made of rice krispie treats also. Not sure if that helps or if I just confused you more...sorry.

I did try to search and did not come up with anything. The dogs are only going to be very little on top of cake. probably about 2 or 3 inches long. nothing big. I will try to search again. Otherwise I am just going to tell her that I can not do this as I don't know how icon_cry.gif

Not sure if this helps but I believe I've seen a "sculpty" mold for dogs at Michaels or AC Moore. It may work for a lab. Good luck!

Hi Amy,
Here are some pics of dogs I've made if you need other ideas. One is a chinese crested, the other a pit bull.
The way I make it is similar to the instructions in that photo from CC. Plus I use wire for support.
I would suggest using modelling paste (fondant:gumpaste 50:50) instead of fondant, as it dries firmer.

Happy modelling and show us your finished doggies!

redred that is adorable. I hope I can make mine as cute. Thanks for the suggestion on the fondant.
