Special Events other than weddings are also a great time to have cake. When was the last time you went to a birthday party where they didn't serve cake? (uhhhhh???? probably never)
For the next few days, I'm going to spotlight cakes that are not geared for the bride to be... but for us regular ol folk who need a fabulous cake for a special event.
Cake #1 in our series is an adorable puppy cake for a little girl who is obsessed with dalmations. Her whole birthday was a dog theme. 12 little 5 year olds acting like puppies for an hour an half! I bet mom was ready for that party to get over :) The puppies are made out of gumpaste... a sugar dough that dries hard so it becomes a great keepsake for the birthday girl.
