HOUND OF THE BAKERVILLE­S!

Scottish Daily Mail - - News - Daily Mail Re­porter

KEEN baker Anna Dil­lon has truly un­leashed her cre­ativ­ity – and come up with a life-size, all-ac­tion model of her bea­gle puppy Poppy in cake.

Mrs Dil­lon, 51, was in­spired to por­tray Poppy, eight months, with her ears fly­ing as she leapt through the air. The cake took four days to make – three to fash­ion the struc­ture with wire and another to dec­o­rate it. Mother-of-one Mrs Dil­lon, who uses Vic­to­ria sponge or Madeira cake for her creations, com­petes in shows around the UK. The care worker, who is mar­ried to Kenny, 50, con­verted her garage in Cam­bus­lang, La­nark­shire, into a studio for bak­ing. She said: ‘Poppy didn’t take me that long. When I get to the finer de­tails I race through. It’s about 1ft 6ins tall, it worked fan­tas­ti­cally.’

Mrs Dil­lon has pre­vi­ously cre­ated car­i­ca­tures of stars in­clud­ing Sylvester Stal­lone and Fred­die Mer­cury.
