The Baker Whose Dog Cake Was Pregnant With Meaning

A customer said she was having a baby shower. She asked us to make a “shower” cake. (One of our specialties is dog cakes that look like cakes people eat.) There was a special purpose for this cake: She did not know the sex of her baby and wanted it to be a surprise. Sooooo, she said she would bring me the envelope with the results of the sex of the baby directly from her doctor. She ordered a double-layer cake and wanted the internal icing to indicate the sex of the baby. When the dog begins to eat the cake, the sex of the baby would be revealed! — Todd Ruppenthal, Happy Husky Bakery, Evanston, IL
