Oreo The Dog by Sharon Zambito

Last night I made a cake for one of my favorite little clients. Her request was "Make Oreo like you did Remy, and lots of white icing." How cute is that?

I know that Eva loves pink and all things girly, so I added some of that to the cake was well.

Oreo is her dog. I snapped a few in progress photos. Once again, I am living proof that owning a good camera does not a good photographer make:



I printed out several pictures of dog figurines too help me do mine. First I did the basic body shape with indentations where the legs and arms will attach. I scored it up with a metal tool to give it some fur texture.


Then I added the hind legs and one front leg. Every piece starts as either a ball or a sausage, and then you refine the shape from there.


Then I realized that Oreo had white front legs, so I had to change that. I added a thin piece of white to the back paws and his chest and scored that up too. Looks like a roasted turkey to me. Or maybe I am just tired. Or hungry. (Trying to lose a few pounds before the next DVD shoot.)


Then I got so absorbed in making him and I forgot to snap pics of the making of the head. That took a little trial and error. I suck. Sorry.



He looks surprised, or scared, or maybe he had too much doggie botox.


Figure modeling is not one my strengths by any means. I was hoping he would just come out decent. If you can guess what breed of dog he is, that would make me even happier.

Oreo with his kibble.
I hope Eva likes it.
