Here is my contribution to the Blue Peter Pets Exhibit at Cake International at NECBirmingham last month.

My very talented cake chums (assembled by the gorgeous Molly’s Creative Cakes) and I were allocated our pets by the team at CBBC team and I was given Iggy, the guide dog puppy. Blue Peter has had a long association with guide dogs, which stretches back to 1964 – captivating millions of viewers and helping to transform the lives of thousands of visually impaired people. Iggy joined the shoe in June 2014, working with presenter, Lindsey Russell. She went on to successfully complete her guide dog training and left the show on 12 May 2016.

I knew that I wanted one of the dogs in our collection to be standing and my co-collaborators were happy to let me bite the bullet on that one! Thanks guys! 😂 The structure was a new experience for me and I designed and made it myself (with some help from the Father-in-Law). Iggy was mainly decorated using Renshaw products, with a dash of Vera Miklas modelling chocolate, airbrushed using Dinkydoodle Designs colours and my Clairella Cakes airbrush.

Thanks for looking…
