Sweet Tooth Tuesday: 3D Puppy Cake

 Wanna make an adorable 3D puppy cake? This is an easy tutorial on how to make your very own!

Step 1: Bake two 8-inch or 9-inch cakes using your favorite cake recipe. Let cool completely and turn out onto some plates.

Step 2: Cut one of the cakes in half

Step 3: Fill the two halves full of frosting- I used a whole tub of frosting. This is going to be the body of the dog so you want to make sure it is wide.

Step 4: Cut the second cake in half and then cut one of the halves in half.

Step 5: Put the two small pieces of cake on each side of the cake at the back. This will be the legs.

Step 6: Cut a little strip out of the other half and then cut the strip into three equal pieces

Step 7: Place the larger portion of the half  at the front of the "body". This will be the face.

 Step 8:  Place two of the three strips right behind the face, and the other in front of the face. These will be the ears and the snout.

Step 9: Decorate your cake. I used a star tip for frosting, brown M&Ms for the eyes and nose, and a starburst for the tongue.
