When my youngest turned 4, he insisted on having a puppy birthday party.  He has several stuffed doggies that he just loves and his favorite is his Pop Out Pets: Stuffy, Fluffy and Furry. (It is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen but he loves those dogs, especially the “British Bulldog”. 😉 )With his birthday he was really hoping to get a puppy birthday cake that would look like his dog “Spots” (dalmation).  This turned out so cute and he loved it!

  2. Let cool and remove from pans.  Cool completely.
  3. Position round cake pan in the middle of large cake board.
  4. Cut the heart cake in half and position on each side of the round cake for the ears. I cut a little bit of cake out on the inside of each ear so it fits snug up against the round cake.

  5. Crush chocolate cookies in a bag.
  6. Frost the entire cake white. Cut cupcake in half and position as the snout (or place ding dong on cake).  Frost white.
  7. Cover the ears with crushed chocolate cookies and place as many spots on the dog as you want.
  8. Put two Junior Mints for eyes and a mini Oreo for the nose.
