Assembled entirely from two round cakes, this pink poodle is paws-itively perfect for posh parties of all kinds, including bashes with a spa, Hollywood, or '50s flavor.
Cut the cake as shown.
Assemble the cake according to the layout at right. Use your hands to press the tail piece into a ball.
Spoon 3 tablespoons of frosting into a ziplock bag and set it aside. Frost the entire cake, then sprinkle coconut fur on the poodle's body, ankles, head, and tail puff. Snip off a corner of the ziplock bag and pipe the tail.
Frost the cookie ear and set it in place. Snip eyelashes and a tongue from blue and red fruit leather and press them in place. Add the malted milk ball nose and a candy collar.
