3D Doggie


I just made 20 liters of Chocolate Mud Cake batter, 5 liters of Chocolate ganache, and 5 liters of Passionfruit Curd, in less than an hour, but what I am proud of is this Doggie! My first attempt at doing a Softie with panels that make it stand called "gussets". I was SOOOOO confused about what was the "right"side was, and how it all went together I was almost going to cry, but then I dragged Mr messyfish away from the Vanilla batter he was making and asked him to work it out for me. What a gem! Now I am ready to do another, and another.... by the way...what the hell is ladder stitch , and whip stitch? Why does the book I am using not explain this with pictures? The words make NO sense....aarrgghhhh....

Nice looking 3D doggie standing up on his own. Good thing Mr. Messyfish figured it out. Now you can make as many as you want. Looks like fun!

I think your standing doggie is great. I have heard of the terms you mentioned before but have forgotten just what they meant.

OH! Look how adorable! He looks very soft and squishy, just right for cuddling. That top photo, especially, looks like he's in a new car showroom.

I also liked hearing about all the yummy-umminess going on in your kitchen! nom nom nom nom!

Hello. Ladder and whip stitches are embroidery stitches, which I am guessing could be used to decorate the seams. Your pup looks cute just as it is.
That's one hell of a lot of batter, I'd have licked quite a lot off the spoons.
