Cute dog themed cupcakes.
You will need:
Tools- Circle cutter to cover the cake, Number 1.5-2 piping nozzle, piping bag (or grease proof paper piping bag), straight edged modelling tool, small dry paint brush (for sticking).
Materials- Green, blue (or chosen collar colour), grey, white sugar paste and black royal icing.
Pipe an arc of black royal icing, pipe 3 small dots over the arc to make ‘toes’.
Roll a narrow ‘sausage’ of blue paste as long as the diameter of your cake. Flatten between your fingers.
Roll a medium size ball of grey paste and squash it flat into a circle (or roll out sugar paste and cut out small circle with a circle cutter).
Lie the blue strip along the cake about 1/3 down.
Stick the disc on to the cake under the blue collar. Mark a hole in the top with a modelling tool.
Roll a small narrow ‘sausage’ of grey paste. Tuck it under the collar and into the hole in the nameplate with your modelling tool.
Write the dog’s name in royal icing.
