Dog Party


My friend's little boy was turning one and I had the pleasure of making this cute dog cake to celebrate. Our youngest sons are only two months apart, so I know they are going to be great friends.
Her son is walking before mine, but I'm not stressed about it. My son crawls so fast I think walking would slow him down and he wouldn't be able to keep up with his older brothers.

Meanwhile, she did such a fab job on his little party I told her I was going to put it on my blog. Good thing she said it was ok. She had great ideas.


Check out these sandwhiches cut into dog bones.


From the garden. That artichoke dip was amazing, I couldn't stop eating it.


Dog treats: BBQ chicken sandwiches, meatballs, dogs in a blanket and pizzas. 


Puppy Chow (I can't resist puppy chow). Just look at that cute little doggie, it is red velvet cream cheese ball (YUM), complete with Nilla wafers.
Of course, dog food, a.k.a. Reese's cereal.


Can't forget the cake! 

To make the dog cake I used a 6"inch round with a ball pan on top for the head. For the body I used a 9" pan and one of my pyrex bowls. The pyrex bowl just took a little longer to bake, but made a nice round shape. The feet, tail and other decorations are all marshmallow fondant.

Thanks for stopping by!


Baking from my heart to your kitchen,
