Not JUST Fake Bakes. I Can REAL Bake.
You Can Too !!!!
I have a tendency to concentrate on the "Crafty" part of this site and neglect the "Party" side. Often a cake is a big part of your party. It not only tastes good but is usually the centerpiece of your party. Bakery or Store Bought Cakes are costly and not as much fun as one you can make yourself. Although I am going to tell you how to make a Cute, Inexpensive Puppy Cake, the main point of our Cake Ideas Page is not to give step by step instructions. It's set up to give you helpful ideas and tips for making your cake, no matter what your occasion or theme. Decorating ideas, tips on frosting and fondant. There are a lot of cakes pictured on this page it's more about helping you come up with your own ideas.
I used a 8" Round pan and a 6" round pan. 1 boxed cake mix to fill Both. $1.00 Oil and eggs $ 1.00
I simply cut the 6" cake in half and placed them on each side of the 8" to make the ears.
1 Chocolate, 1 Vanilla Canned Frosting $3.00
You don't even have to smooth it. I purposely swirled it in small strokes with a knife to give him texture. Add black food coloring to some of the chocolate for the eyes and nose. If you don't have decorating bags and tips you can cut the corner of a ziploc bag, fill it with the black frosting and use it to draw the mouth and eyebrows.
For $5.00 you have a cute, easy cake. However if you splurge for $2.00 more you can get the Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough, which I only used 1/2 of the package. (And yes I got the ones you don't even have to slice. just pop them on a cookie sheet and bake) Add chocolate frosting circles and now you have a whole display.
Like Crafting making cakes is FUN. Unlike The Fake Bakes they are also EDIBLE !!!!
