Thank you Mr Gingerbread Man!

This year, Riley requested a husky birthday cake.  She's an avid dog lover and has certain breeds she prefers over others.  How about cupcakes?  Nope.  "Next year we can do cupcakes but I really have my heart set on a husky cake this year!"  Ahhhh, the drama.  Of course you do!  It couldn't be a flower, a butterfly or just some plain old cake.  I hit the craft store, no plain old dog face mold, forget a husky specific mold!  So, I attempted to do it on my own.  I used a standard round cake pan and enlisted the help of my trusty gingerbread man cake mold for the ears, using the gingerbread man's arms and the husky's nose by using the gingerbread man's foot.  I created texture with the frosting and tried to use just a little gray frosting (gray frosting = yuck!) to accent his ears.  Riley was pretty thrilled with the results and I was happy to confirm that you can really trust a good man!
Also happy to report that this cake was simple and quick, it took me less than an hour to decorate, unlike last year's puppy cake....
Next year, I think we'll order!
