Birthday Mosaic

I can't believe it, but our youngest just turned 8!

She is big-time into dogs...
real dogs,
stuffed animal dogs,
walking, barking, stuffed dogs,
American Girl dogs...
you name it, this girl's got it!

So a dog themed party was in line.
Especially when my way-cool girlfriend, Amanda
offered to make the dog bowl cake!

She made the bone of fondant
and decorated with bling-bling.

The "dog food" are Whopper balls
which she kept in position with chocolate.
The base of the cake has pink fondant balls
rolled in pink sprinkles.

The favors were also doggie themed!
Human "Puppy Chow", packaged in
pink, red & green boxes,
topped with glass doggie ornaments.
(One little girl prefers cats, so there was one cat ornament.)

Human "Puppy Chow" is an easy and sweet treat -
perfect for sharing over the holidays.
I'll post the recipe on my other blog
later today.

Linking up over at Mary's - be sure to check out the other
wonderful mosaics!
Also using this as my sweet shot submission.
