I feel really sad that this is the best picture I have of my sons 1st birthday cake…so much was going on, I just didn’t have the time to take it outside to get a proper picture. (ha ha…Can anybody tell me why I can’t seem to take a decent picture inside!?! I think it might be time to take a photo class…or something. :-) )
I was going to take a picture of it before I frosted it so you could see how I put it together….but again, there was just too much going on. sorry :-). It probably isn’t too hard to figure out just by looking at it….but here are a few more details just incase:
I used 3 round cakes: 1 for the head, 1 for the belly, and the 3rd one I cut into the shape of the ears and the tail. I also cut a little crescent moon shape out so the head and body would fit better together. Then I used 4 cupcakes for the paws and a top of a cupcake for the nose. I smashed a red spice gum drop for the tongue, and used Junior mints for the eyes and nose. I then decorated the paw cupcakes using Keebler Grasshopper mint cookies and Junior mints. yum! And obviously I just used brown frosting for the cute little spots. ha ha.
