Pink Puppy Cake

Pink Puppy Cake on Cake Central

1st birthday cake for my grandchild. Sponge cake filled with buttercream, covered in sugarpaste (fondant). This is from a design in a Debbie Brown book. The butterfly is a royal icing run out, usng flower stamens for the antennae. The cake board (actually, its an upturned tray!) has been covered in sugarpaste and embossed using a flower cutter and a heart crimper. As cake tins / pans, I used an ovenproof basin for the body and an oversized cappucino cup for the head; snout, paws and tail are sugarpaste. discs on collar are strawberry flavoured choclate buttons (in uk, they are made by Silverspoon and can be found in many supermarket baking aisles - I think Wilton also do flavoured buttons, possibly called Candy Melts?)
