Puppy Dog Birthday Cake
I made this cake several years ago for my son's second birthday. It was a lot of fun to make.
I carved the dog shape out of cake that I had baked in a dutch oven. I frosted it in buttercream frosting using an icing tip that I could drag to make it look like hair. I made the eyes and nose out of gum paste. I covered the icecream cone hat with gum paste to resemble a party hat.
Looks like I made a tail and a bump for the head out of gum paste too. (I have a very pregnant belly in this picture.) That little guy is almost 4 already.

I am wanting to make this puppy cake for my sons birthday cake. Can you give me specific instructions on how much cake batter you used in the Dutch oven and how you carved the puppy out? I appreciate your help!!

It has been 5 years since I made this cake, but I will try to help as much as I can. I think I used 2 batches of cake batter and probably had to bake for a long time since it was so thick. I would start with 45 minutes and increase by 5 to 10 minute increments until done. I think I actually used two boxes of cake mix for that cake. It may only take 1 1/2 boxes depending on the size of your baking pan. Make the batter and fill pan about 1/2 way full.
