Frolicking in the meadow

During December I was set the task of creating a birthday cake that had a little old lady and a black labrador on top – descriptively I was told it should look just like my labrador friend Louie…I have to say I had so much fun making this cake!

I decided to sit the old lady in a green meadow picking flowers in the grass with her faithful friend sitting next to her, the final characters turned out so cutely!  I have since found out that the birthday girl who received this cake loved the little characters so much she wanted to keep them…but her actual doggy companion had other ideas and quickly devoured them whilst left alone for only a few moments! All I can say is typical labrador behaviour!

The cake hidden under the fondant icing is a rich dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache buttercream.
