I made this cake for Ben's 7th birthday. This puppy has turned out to be one of my favorite cakes. My little Anna liked him so much that she asked me, "can we keep him?" and when I told her it was for someone else's birthday she let me know "but then I will miss him so much." That's how cute he was. The picture just doesn't do him justice.
This was a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling.
