Puppy Cakes - Lick them before they lick you!
Pin ItTonight's project was decorating miniature cupcakes with my sister-in-law H for our niece B's birthday party. B turned 3 on Thursday, and she is so cute! Anyway, these little cakes were H's idea (the creative genius). She baked them in a miniature cupcake pan, mixed up some basic buttercream icing, and brought them over to my house for the fun part. I got to help decorate them. Neither one of us has ever taken a cake decorating class (which I would still like to do), but I am very proud of how these turned out. One mini cupcake is the base, while half a mini cupcake is attached with a toothpick or icing for the head. We mixed up the different colors of icing and used sandwich bags with the corners snipped off to make the "fur". We used cut up pieces of chocolate chips and raisins for eyes and noses and finished them off with little pink icing tongues. They almost look like they could give you wet puppy kisses. I think the kids will lick them first though! They were a lot of fun to make. Now I just need an excuse to come up with another cake decorating project.
