It's been a while since we made a dog cake. So what better way to add to our collection of dog themed caked tutorials than to introduce you to this little guy?
We've previously provided cake tutorials on how to make pugs, golden retrievers and even dogs in aeroplanes!!! However, none of them quite have the same attitude as this guy does!!
The Street Dog would be perfect as a birthday cake and of course, a custom message could be written on the wall to suit all occasions.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to cover awkward shapes, create a brick wall effect, use edible paint efficiently, create realistic textures, cake carving, modelling, making a baseball cap and lots more! This cake is ideal for an intermediate cake designer or a beginner looking for a new challenge.

We'd love to see your take on Street Dog - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.

Remember you can use our Cake Calculator as well to make sure you get your ingredients and portions just right for this fun little fellow. You will also find that it may come in handy when calculating the ganache.
