Meet Shakira, our newest Canine Cake!

www.cakelava.com

The month of March has been absolutely whirlwind between cakes, Canada classes, the next round of classes in June 2012,  and other exciting projects in the works. We've been on a non-stop adrenaline rush since the month started and its leading right into the month of April!  If you are a follower of "Musings from Cakeland" blog, you know we recently returned from Canada where Rick was teaching 2 classes.  We left for Ontario on Sunday, March 6th.  The last cake that left our shop was in the evening of Saturday, March 5th when Rick had an opportunity to make this super cute half Chinese Sharpei, half Australian Cattle dog mix, named "Shakira". 

We were excited to make "Shakira" sculpted out of cake for our client, who has previously ordered cakes from us before and always brings us fun and interesting projects to sculpt.  How could we not fall in love with a doggie this cute.  To see this face right before we left Oahu was a wonderful goodbye!  Rick sculpted "Shakira" completely out of cake and had him relaxing in the grass.  The cake was a gift by our client for a friend of hers and she was thrilled with the cake when she saw it.  We had grown slightly attached to the dog in the process of making him and it was nice having that spirited dog energy in our shop shortly before taking off on our big adventure.  A huge thanks to our client Traci for introducing us to the loveable Shakira!
