Puppy Dog Cake & Tutorial

 I made this puppy dog for a 3rd birthday party.  The cake is a white cake, iced in buttercream with fondant decorations.
 I started off with a 9 inch cake, 2-6 inch cakes and a cupcake.  I cut the 9 inch cake in half then sandwiched the two halves together (for the body of the dog).  I cut one of the 6 inch cakes in half and placed them on either side of the 9 inch halves (for the back legs).  That's the picture above, after I've given the "body" a crumb coat.
 With the other 6 inch cake, I cut about 1/4 of the bottom off for the face.  Then I placed it up against the body and gave it a crumb coat.

 For the ears, I cut a circle out of brown fondant, and then pulled it a bit to make an oval shape.
 Hear are the small round and oval cutters I used to make the dogs spots out of fondant.

 Dog Tail!
Here is the dog after I put the snout (the cupcake) on and added eyes and a mouth (with black icing).  The tongue and nose are made out of fondant.
My favorite part!  The bow!  There is also a purple collar between the head and body of the cake, which you can't see.  The bow and collar are both made out of fondant.
