Sparkly Dog Cake

I was all set to make a dog birthday cake, when I got the request for a "sparkly dog cake".  What exactly does that look like?  Well I made the base in pink icing and then added edible glitter to fill the request.  The collar is red licorice, the nose is a cut piece of tootsie roll as are the eyes and the mouth is a piece of a starburst candy. The birthday girl was thrilled. 

Of course I always learn things when I do this. Afterward I decided my time honored technique of putting a little wax paper under the edges to keep it from getting icing on it, was not really worth it.  I think next time, I just need to pipe some stars or a border around the base to cover the little mess.
