Dog cakes

How much is that cup cake in the window? Dog cake tutorial (part 1)

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.

Paw prints

Pipe an arc of black royal icing, pipe 3 small dots over the arc to make ‘toes’.

Collar cake

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.

Have fun!
