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.
