Brandee and I spent the last two wonderful days creating two cakes. The inspirational theme was our animals, Bella the Cat and Jackson the Dog. Bella’s cat cake is entitled: “Happy Furr-Day” and Jack’s dog cake is entitled” “Happy Bark-Day”.
Below is a slideshow and a video of the wackiness! Hover your mouse over the image below to navigate the photos.

I had a vision to do something special for Brandee's Birthday so the idea of a cat cake and dog cake was born.
Animal Cakes - Artist details
As we started to get involved in the project our ambition became even more tremendous so we started including great details.
Cat cake ingredients
These are the ingredients for the Furr-Cake masterpiece that will eventually-be.
Cat cake start
This is the fresh cake prepared to eventually become designed in Bella's likeness as the "Furr-Cake".

The Furr-Cake taking shape as Brandee performs her magic.
Cat cake done
The Furr-Cake is done! Or is it? It needs a few added touches we think!
Fresh out of the oven, the dog cake design team of Brandee and Kevin outline our cutting plan.
Brandee makes the initial cuts into the fresh (and terrific smelling) Bark-Cake.
The outline of the Bark-Cake in Jack's likeness is now clear with floppy ears, waggy tail and all.
The final versions of the Bark-Cake and Furr-Cake. What a wonderful day and great memories! We gave the cakes to friends :-).
