A Wolf Cake For Wolfgang

cute wolf cake by coco cake land

I made this cutie pie wolf cake for the dang cutest little guy named Wolfgang for his laser-tag birthday party back in October. I was in a pretty bad creative slump, post-book-completion. I thought I might give up cakes all together, I was kind of hating on the internet, and felt ready to try something totally different. I wasn’t sure what … you know all those books about careers and following your dreams and doing what you love doing?? I tried to think about what it was that I loved. Was it too late for med school? LOL. Should I try and get a job at some digital ad agency? Should I get a job in a kitchen chopping vegetables? Should I go back to teaching art to kids?? But then, through the making of this cake, I realized… well shit. I actually am doing what I love. I love drawing. I love baking and being super-anal about my cake designs. I love making kids happy. I love photography and food styling, and I love writing… So… thank you Nancy, for asking me to make this and coaxing me out of my cake hibernation!

    Sooo cute!
    I don’t know if you remember me but, you made our wedding cake! It’s still one of my very favorite cakes ever. I was wondering if I could also help with the coaxing out of cake hibernation, I would love for you to make a birthday cake for our son who’s turning 6 at the end of February.

    That is so adorable, I want to make for my daughter who is wolf-crazy. Are the insides of the years, the eyes, nose, cheeks, and tongue all made of fondant? Hopefully you see this, I know you posted this quite a while ago. Thank you!

      Hi Katie! Thank you! Yes, those pieces are all fondant, but you could use candies or pipe the features with buttercream too! :P
