Dog Versus Cake

I just had to share this….

I made this RV cake last month. After I heard back saying that the parents freaked out over the cake so much that they didn’t want to eat it and wanted to preserve it for the long run!!! (I suggested freezing, but with no guarantees.)

But recently, I got this very interesting – and in my opinion, hilarious – update:

Here are her words:


“…Funny follow up to the motorhome cake: my parents saved it because they didn’t want to cut into it. It sat out for a couple of weeks on display in their living room.  They had guests come for a weekend so my mom put it on a table down in the storage room. Next thing they know is that the dog is sick, they couldn’t figure out why, so inconvenient when the guests are there, etc.  my mom just happened to go down into the storage room and the dog had eaten a chunk off the back end of the cake!!!!! But the best part – the front and the figures are still intact so they hope to preserve that.”

And then she sent me a photo!

Tactfully named a_dog’s_breakfast.jpg:

dog eats cake

LOL! I’m speechless. It’s like he started licking the board… then made his way to the fondant on the side, where then he uncovered what was underneath and went all out!

(P.S. The dog is doing just fine now. 😉 Poor guy, I can’t imagine how he felt after eating that much chocolate cake!)

Fifth Wheel RV Motorhome Cake

Recently I had the opportunity to work on a vehicle cake. This time, it was a RV/motorhome cake – specifically, a fifth-wheel trailer!

This cake was for Bill & Livia’s 70th and 65th birthdays! This was a surprise to them from their lovely two daughters.  Bill & Livia are a couple who have their birthdays just a few days apart, and who LOVE to go camping! And they always go RV-ing with their chocolate brown lab. They have been married for many years – 43 to be exact –  and apparently they compliment each other very, very well!

From concept:

To cake:

Happy Birthday and Happy Camping to Bill & Livia!
