|Here are some details about my project:|
Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This cake was actually for my friend's two Shih Tzu's birthday party! Their names are Minion & Mayhem. They got their own 'pup-cakes' & this was the cake for humans! I used Elisa's vanilla cake recipe---which has become my go-to recipe anyway. Best vanilla cake I've ever had! I make my own fondant & used Lauren Kitchens' buttercream recipe which is my favorite. I ordered Elisa's short-hair impression mat which was money WELL spent! Both my airbrush & luster dusts were used to create the color on the dog. My favorite cake sculpting tool is my grapefruit knife! I love the curved shape to create natural-looking roundness on the cake, & having both sides serrated makes it super-easy to carved the cake.
What are you most proud of? How much she looked like Minion & Mayhem. They said she could be their sister!
