"Who Let the Dogs Out?"

So Kelly's daughter, Chrissy, asked if I would make her birthday cake. I was happy to do it and asked her what theme she wanted. She told me she wanted a "Hotel for Dogs" movie cake. I was stumped! I could not find an idea anywhere that I could copy. Luckily, I found "dog" party supplies at the Dollar Tree and decided to copy those for the cake. Here's what I came up with!

Sweet Beach

So here's my theory: if you can't get away to a tropical beach paradise--bake one instead!! We celebrated my Mom's 57th birthday today with a "luau theme", complete with a beach cake that I made and decorated. Mom loved it and hated to have to cut it but that's the best part of a cake-tasting it!! Not surprising that this evening's celebration was not without a "blond moment". When I went to light the flip-flop candles, I set the paper umbrella on fire!! Leave it to me!
