Poochie-Dog Pup Cake

I made a dog cake!  This is Poochie.  The name Fido had already been taken by my recent unicorn cake, but I think this fella is more of a Poochie anyway.

He’s a pretty boy.   3D sculpted yellow lab dog cake.
He’s a yellow lab on the outside, chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream on the inside!

Super Awesome Unicorn Cake!

Meet Fido.  Fido is a unicorn.  Fido is a cake.  Fido is a super awesome unicorn cake!

Super awesome unicorn cake.
He’s very happy to be an edible unicorn.  You can tell by his toothy grin.

Like all unicorns, he is made of sunshine and magic (and cake – lots of cake).

Super awesome unicorn cake.
And, also like all unicorns, he poops glittery rainbow Skittles turds.  (It is known.)

Okay, you might be wondering at this point why I made a giant unicorn cake that is pooping glittery rainbow Skittles turds.  A fair question, I feel!  This majestic beast of sugary wonder was constructed as part of a farewell for wonderful woman who is pretty majestic herself.  She’s transferring to another office within her company, and the team requested this cake as part of her send-off.  This shows just a hint of how much they’re going to miss her!  Oh – and she LOOOOOVES unicorns.  Did I forget to mention that?  And Skittles.  And… glittery rainbow turds, apparently.

Mmmm… rainbow-y.

If you’ve been paying attention, you might also have wondered why his name is Fido.  Well, when I was building him, my husband thought the internal structure looked more like a dog than a unicorn, so he named him Fido.  The name stuck, so I went with it!  I felt he needed a more unicorn-y last name, though, so I extended it to Fido McSparklebutt, and gave him a sparkly heart butt tattoo to live up to his moniker.  I thought, as an awesome unicorn, he could pull it off.  I think I was right.  :)

Super awesome unicorn cake.

Big shout-out, too, to The People’s Cake’s Kaysie Lackey for her Craftsy teachings on the internal structure of this fella.  It was my first time attempting a cake that stands on its own four legs (since most cakes have no legs to speak of at all…), and her guidance saved me a lot of trial and error!

Here are Fido and I together before he went to his fancy party!  (Sorry for the photo quality – this was a quick phone snap!)

Yay Fido!  What a guy.

Super awesome unicorn cake.

Well, that’s all the unicorn pics for now, folks.  Fido wishes all of you a cake-filled day.  And remember: Always be yourself.  Unless you can be a unicorn cake.  Then always be a unicorn cake.

…Sound advice, Fido.  Sound advice.

Always be a unicorn

Go Habs Cake!

Go Habs go!

As a proud Toronto resident and a long-suffering Leafs fan, I’m just happy to see Canadian teams in the playoffs.  At the moment, I’m glad to see the Canadiens!  As I write this post, I’ve got the Montreal-Tampa Bay Game 1 on in the background, and they just tied it up.  Woot!  Will this be the year Canada brings home the cup?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, this fan got his own team jersey, in the form of a birthday cake!

So, who are you cheering for?  Hockey or not, I always cheer for cake (at least you can always count on cake – unlike the Leafs’ playoff hopes!).

Go Habs go!

“Udderly” Adorable Farm Cake

I just loved this cute little farm cake!  The party was held at Toronto’s Riverdale Farm, so the cake was a perfect fit.

The 2D scene around the lower tier featured Mr. Horse in his barn…

…along with Sheep, Piggy, and a bright red bow!

Miss Cow (since clearly she’s a lady cow…) topped it off with a “wooden” sign for the birthday girl.

Animal Bunting Cake

A trio of cute little animals decorates this sweet first birthday cake!

Here’s Mr. Giraffe:

Mr. Lion, chillin’ and danglin’ on the edge of the tier:

And little Mr. Elephant (okay, maybe he’s more rotund than little…):

They all have cute little tails, as well, but for some reason I didn’t think to get a shot of their rear-views (can’t imagine why that wasn’t a priority…).  You’ll just have to take my word that they were cute.  :)

Either way, Happy Birthday to little Gatsby – I hope your party was WILD!
