Hugo loves dogs. Not only. But we decided that there should be a dog on his birthday cake as he is so excited every time he sees one. We made this decoration using a dog stencil that we cut out ourselves and cocoa powder. Very easy! Look at the bottom of the post for the stencil. You can also create your own. There are lots of ready stencils on the internet.
Print out the stencil and place on the cardboard, attach with masking tape. Cut out the shape using a draper knife (ask an adult to help you!). When done, remove the paper and hold the cardboard stencil close to your cake but try not to touch it. Sieve the cocoa powder carefully over the shape.
