I did this cake and cupcakes for a Paw Patrol-themed party, without infringing on their copyright! 😀
The bottom tier is my vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream, the middle tier is a chocolate cake with caramel buttercream, and the top tier is a dummy cake – purely for decoration.
The bottom tier is green decorated with brightly coloured pawprints and little white bones. The middle tier is white with Dalmation spots and a red collar, and the top tier is on fire, with the birthday boy’s #6 made to look like brick, also on fire, being hosed down to put the fire out.
The chocolate and vanilla cupcakes have a topping of white vanilla buttercream and brightly coloured vanilla buttercream, with a little pawprint on the side.
I am especially pleased with this sugar paste cowboy boot cake topper, with its red and white paisley bandanna.
Made completely freehand – no moulds or cutters – it stands about 12cm tall!
I had to make my own plan for the boot, so I used pictures of cowboy boots to make it up as I went along – I think I made four boots before I had one I was happy with! 😀
The two-tiered wild West rodeo-themed cake was a lot of fun to make too, vanilla cake top tier, chocolate cake bottom tier, decorated with a tooled “leather” belt and buckle, stars, horseshoes, little stetsons, and rope.
The cake design is not completely original – I took design aspects from various Western-theme cakes on the internet.
