The Pug Cake
First of all...animal cake are fast becoming my favorites to do. They are just so much fun and end up having their own little personalities. Like Elton the Pug here....I love how shifty he turned out, like he just did something wrong...a bit mischievous, even! We usually just do frosting for the animal cakes. Since they have fur, this mimics it perfectly. However, pugs are very short haired....what to do?! So we covered him with fondant, but then he is too smooth....the solution? I painted on a thin layer of frosting over the fondant and tapped it, it give it a short spiky texture. Then we airbrushed the whole thing. Turned out great! Some say..even a little scary, but I think that is a good thing!
