What kind of dog are you looking to carve? I have a couple in my photos, I just carve the body and use rkt for the head and legs then cove each piece in fondant and put together, I find carving to be a bit of a pain, but I can usually do the body pretty good, I have never tried the legs and head because I have a hard time covering the little pieces with fondant. Hope this helps.

Confetti cakes posted a video on carving a dog from cake. That is how I learned to do mine. You can find it on YouTube if you search for confetti cakes.

I'm eating my breakfast while I get my morning CC fix. I wish you'd have added the word "cake" to the end of your forum topic.

New here, Hi!! I've been searching online for tips on carving a doggy cake, too. I've taken on the task of making a cake for my friend's daughter's bday, and she said she'd like a dog cake. A chihuahua. Her chihuahua, to be exact. I've seen the confetti cakes video, I think I'll take a look at it again, but I'd appreciate any tips anyone has on keeping everything balanced so it won't fall over, shaping the head and legs, things like that. Thanks in advance!

There is a tutorial on here showing how to do a chihuahua in a purse. It's really cute. With a chihuahua you might need the purse just to have enough cake to go aroundicon_smile.gif
