Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shaped pans make creating "masterpieces" easy! I took this cake a step further by making it a cat instead of a dog. I made the nose more triangular and the ears standup and pointed. My little girl loved it! This took me a while to do, but that may be just me. I seem to take a long time on any shaped cake I've made, but I am always pleased with the outcome
