alright, second time using fondant. i made a guitar cake for my dad, and wanted to try something a bit more 3D this time. My boyfriends mom's 50th birthday is coming up, and she has two ADORABLE mini daschunds that she loves. they always cuddle under a blanket together, so we decided to make a sculpted cake of the two.

and ta-da!


it came out better than i expected! except that the proportions are a bit off, but shh







a couple of progress shots:






and for reference, here are pictures of the dogs we modeled them after!


Gretchen


spaetzle


and the two together, we took the covers of of them too quickly and woke them! but look how they cuddle... awwwww


this cake came out so much better than i thought it was going to, and after 5 hours of decorating, thank goodness! its going to be a center piece at a restaurant for the birthday for a party of about 20! then theyre eating it back at home, but unfortunately, i cant make it to the party, ill be out of town Sad so hopefully i can get my boyfriend to take some good reaction pictures i can post!

Oh my! I have so much to tell you! First,  gut gemacht - fantastisch!. What amazing work! I have a brown mini of my own & he would make a lovely cake model too. Secondly, the names are great! My grandmother's first dachsie (of about 10) was named Gretchen & she named my aunt after her - and so Spatzle doesn't feel left out, tell him/her that that spatzle mit kase is my favorite meal. Again - good job!

That's almost too cute for words. I love it! But, was it hard to eat? You know, like, you were eating your dogs?  Wink

I forwarded your post to a friend of mine who also has two daschunds. She freaked out over it! Totally fell in love with the cake.

PHENOMENAL CAKE!  Very impressive work!  The dogs are realistic looking.  This ROCKS!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Wow that really is awesome!

How adorable! The trouble with cakes like that is I wouldn't wanna eat it because it would spoil the cuteness.  Smiley
