The Poodle on the Pillow Cake!
This cake stretched me in a lot of ways...I had never made a "shaped cake", I had never used fondant...and I had never experienced a "cake disaster" when I opened the fridge the morning of a party!
Our little pink poodle's entire head fell off overnight and sent me into a panic in the morning! Because this was my first disaster, I was not prepared...I did not have extra icing. I had to whip up a whole extra batch, tint it the correct shade of poodle pink, and repair Miss Poodle in time for the party. It all worked out and I learned a lot along the way.
