Step By Step Paw Patrol Style

 
 Last week we created a Paw Patrol cake that was absolutely adorable! See how this cake came together!



Here was your sneak peek- were you able to guess what these toppers were?!

Here is another clue for you!

Edible badges are cut from edible paper.

Using a touch of water, they are attached fondant.

They are then cut out again.

The base cake is then covered with blue fondant.

The base cake is then doweled to support the upper cake.

Blue beads are created from a mold for the base of the cake.

The top cake is covered with pink fondant
and smoothed out with a smoother.

The badges are then applied to the base of the cake.

The upper cake is then stacked and doweled through.

Using a cookie cutter, bones are cut from white fondant.

A number 2 is created from rolled fondant.

Using liquid food color, a happy birthday
 message is written.

The banner, bones, and logo are applied.

Here is the cake with the finished toppers! HOW CUTE!
