1) Prepare cake

Stack the two 6 in. cake rounds on top of each other with a thin layer of buttercream icing between layers. Repeat with the two 9 in. cake rounds. To prepare both sets of cake rounds to be covered with fondant, ice them with a layer of buttercream icing.

2) Cover with fondant

Knead and roll out 1 lb white fondant. Place over the larger cake round and smooth using a fondant smoother. Trim off the excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife. Do the same for the smaller cake using a ball of red fondant. Place the smaller cake on the larger cake on top of a cake board.

3) Make a collar

To make the collar, knead a ball of black fondant and roll out to approximately 6 in. long. Cut a 1 in.-wide strip and wrap around the cake, then attach to cake with buttercream in a disposable bag with tip #3.

4) Make Chase's pup tag

To make the Pup Tag, tint a small ball of white fondant with a dot of black icing color to make grey, then roll out and freehand cut a 2 in. shield shape and 1 in.-long rectangle to attach to the cake "collar." Knead and roll out a ball of blue fondant, then freehand cut a shield shape slightly smaller than the grey one you just made. Knead and roll out yellow fondant, then cut out a star shape with the smallest star cookie cutter. Assemble the Pup Tag with dots of buttercream icing, layering the star on top of the blue shield on top of the grey shield. When it's dry, attach the Pup Tag to the top tier of the cake with buttercream icing.

5) Whip up paw prints & candy border

To make the paw prints, roll out remaining black fondant and cut out six paw prints with the two smallest round fondant cutters. Add a dot of buttercream icing in a disposable bag with tip #3 to the back of the circles, then arrange them around the bottom tier of the cake. To make the candy border, use buttercream to place small dots around the bottom tier of the cake and alternate red, yellow and blue Sixlets®. Add the finishing touch with PAW Patrol birthday candles, then it's ready for action!
