Lovepup & Dog Cake - Nuts About Pups


Haha... Some dog themes going down at Coco Cake HQ lately. First, an invitation from Chatelaine.com to create a "Valentine's themed" cupcake for their 14 Days of Valentines Cupcakes feature. Forgoing the usual hearts and flowers route, I made a funny little dog-faced lovepup cupcake. Say that five times! Pretty darn fun feature idea, over 14 days they reveal a new "cupcake" as created by one of 14 bakers across Canada. Fun to see all the other creations! Coco Cake's lovepup was revealed on Day 2!

Along with the lovepup, I also recently made a dark chocolate mocha woofer cake for the lovely Nishidha, wife of Sandeep, to celebrate her birthday! Sandeep told me she wants a dog so this was his way of appeasing her wishes... ! Rich dark chocolate ganache filling and chocolate mocha buttercream piped hairy-style all over!

And on a final doggish/ridiculous note, as my family and some friends will remember, Coco Cake sole proprietor and boss hog LKS has a real thing for Pound Puppies. This video makes me laugh so hard... I'm ridiculous. I think it's the extra funky bassline and the dog panting sounds. But I do remember watching this cartoon on Saturday mornings surrounded by my Pound Puppies!!!
