Last week, me and my family were visting my cousins that lives in LA and last tuesday was their dog, Spencer’s, 1st birthday. So I decided to bake a vanilla almond birthday cake with buttercream frosting. I had many ideas for decorating Spencer’s cake but in the end decided to go with making a “textured” dog bone cake with a big red fondant bow on top. I guess the cake wasn’t really a dog cake since only humans could eat it, but we did let Spencer have a little piece of it. It was really fun making the cake since my cousin was helping me. I made cupcakes with the extra cake batter and used a bag striping technique to frost them. Here is a picture of the cake and Spencer.
