the cake is 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 yellow. covered with buttercream icing. made the guy out of fondant. the little dog's were just candle holders i had. this was my first order. the only infor he would give me was he wanted it half chololate/yellow and dolphins on it and told me what I thought was best because last yr here order a cake from a store and they messed up big time.
