This Fondant Graduation Dog is Top of the Class

June 4th, 2015 by Desiree Smith

It’s graduation party season! When Beth from Hungry Happenings sent me her latest blog post on this autograph hound, I first thought I was looking at a stuffed animal. It wasn’t until I read the headline that I realized the little guy is made from fondant!

Fondant Graduation Dog


Continuing with the theme of education, Beth learned how to model fondant recently in a class at The Wilton School of Cake Decorating and Confectionary Art. There are plenty of tutorials available on 3D Modeling and Beth also walks you through how to make a fondant autograph dog of your own.

Great job, Beth! We give you an A+ for this graduation dog.

    This is nice but this post needed to be sent out at least 6 or 8 weeks ago for the rest of us to do anything with it. College graduations began taking place back in early May and the one we had in my family was actually on May 16th. Even many of the high school graduations are over here in this area. It USED to be, long ago when I graduated from high school we thought it was pretty neat that we finished several days earlier than the rest of the kids and would have graduation ceremonies about the 2nd week of June. That is of course when school didn’t begin till after Labor Day in the fall. Now the so-called leaders of the school systems around here start the kids earlier and earlier each year. It’s become so bad in parts of the state and impacting the economy of the beach areas that the State House of Maryland is working on a STATE wide law that no schools can begin before Labor Day. Perhaps then graduation ceremonies will go be to their schedule of the middle of June. Until then, I guess I’ll just store this away in the archives for another year.

    2 years ago I made the Monkey Waterfall cake. I am now working on another jungle animal cake and wanted to make Giggles the Monkey again. I can not find the step by step instructions for the Shape-n-Amaze system anywhere on your website or the internet at all. Every link you provide takes you back to the 3D character page, but no instructions. Can you tell me if you still offer them?
