Doggie Bone Cake--How-to and recipe

Ok, I've to admit i couldnt find the mould for the doggie bone, and I lost my rectangular pan. So, I had to do with what i, this is what i did.

Any recipe works fine with this. Butter cakes works very well.

The 2 side parts are part of a small cake.And the 2 middle ones are 2 muffins.

For the small cake: cut the top and bottom part off, trangular shape.Make sure it's cut off equally. Then, cut it apart, and put the 2 muffins in the centre. The muffins sides have been cut off to match the height and also to stand nicely.

Then, ice it with white icing.
( Do all this on a baking sheet, so that later all the mess can be cleared and transfer over for presentation)

White icing recipe:
3 cups icing sugar
1 cup butter
2 tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 salt

Start beating all of this together on low till it's all mixed well. Then, continue beating on medium for 5 minutes. If you see that the icing is quite thick, add A LITTLE milk till right consistency. (Spreadable, not too thin)

Take 4tbs icing out in a small bowl. add a little more water (1 tsp). Now, spread it on the sides of the muffin to stick it with the other parts. Next spread it on top, it's ok if some crumbs come out. Stick it in the fridge for 5 mins or till it's a bit hard on top.

Then, spread your actual icing on the top of the cake. To make it smooth, get a cup of hot water, put a metal spoon in it. After a while, quickly use a clean cloth to wipe off the spoon, and use back of spoon to apply heat on the icing to smoothen it.

It's a lot of work to ice the whole cake, so if you are already tired, you can actually pour it the top and leave it like that too.... :0)
