Another wedding, but this time, the cake was for the groom. The bulldog, made to look like the University of Georgia’s mascot, was created by Elizabeth Forkey at EBCakes in Georgia. The large confection, made with chocolate pound cake and a mocha buttercream filling, fed 85 people.

Here comes the wedding cake! Pugsley became one couple’s lemon-scented butter cake (with raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream) thanks to Lisa Bugeja at Flour Confections in Toronto. “The couple loved their dog Pugsley and really wanted him to be part of the wedding, but since they couldn’t have their dog at the wedding, this was their next choice,” Bugeja says.

This cake, another made for a groom, represents some major loves in his life: Virginia Tech and Brutus, the terrier mix. Kara from A Cake to Remember in Richmond, Va., says she had to create Brutus’s “fur” out of chocolate clay pushed through a garlic press.
