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.
Roll a medium-sized ball of white sugar paste into a pear shape. This will be his body. Position it in the centre of your cup cake, use a small amount of water on your paintbrush to stick if needed.
Roll 4 small ‘sausages’ of sugar paste. Flatten the end of each and mark toes with your modelling tool. Stick on as legs. Add a smaller ‘sausage’, tapered at the end, for his tail.
Roll a small ball of sugar paste into a pear shape for the head. Make a small ball of your chosen collar colour, flatten this and stick it on the neck before adding the head.
Make 2 small triangles of sugar paste for ears. Stick a smaller triangle of pink to the under side (before sticking on to the head) if you want pink inside the ears (optional). Mark eye holes with your modelling tool.
Flatten some brown sugar paste into a rough, slightly round shape. If it looks too smooth you can tear some off of the edges. Roll a few tiny balls of sugar paste to make mud splats. Stick these on your cup cake (with a small amount of water if required).
Roll a ‘sausage’ of white sugar paste. Flatten one end between your fingers and mark the flattened end in the middle to make a bone shape.
Stick your bone to the cake at an angle so that it appears to be coming out of the ‘mud’.
