My 3 year old granddaughter turned three this past week. She loves animals so I made her a puppy cake.
I did a variation of the puppy tutorial I found on You Tube. It wasn't hard and she loved it. The cake is a Duncan Hines Strawberry cake and I used strawberry jam in the middle. It was pretty tasty and there was none left when the party was over which is the way I like it!
I covered the cake with a butter cream crumb coat and white fondant. I spray painted the pink around the bottom of the cake and on the number 3. When we served the cake I put strawberries around the base to coincide with the flavor.
I also made some cupcakes using silicone flower pot baking cups. I made them to match the cake.
When we started to sing Happy Birthday I guess it was too loud for Lizzy. She did enjoy the cake.
