And that's when I said "to hell with it" about my big plans. Besides, when I'm up at the cottage, the last thing I want is to be stressed out. We had a great time and no one said "Gee Anne, you know, it's just not the same without a homemade fabric 'Happy Birthday' banner and dog-themed hanging decorations". I forfeited an elaborate dog cake (Rowan LOVES dogs) for some simple dog cupcakes.
|The '1' candle was a little to much for the cupcake!|
Here's how they were built:
Pipe size 18 (Wilton brand sizing) stars in buttercream icing all over the top of the cupcake. At the bottom, add a swirly mound of icing for the snout. Retro serving platter optional.
Add a chocolate covered peanut for the nose.
Cut a cube of caramel in half and shape each piece into an ear shape with your fingers.
There ya go, zero-stress dog cupcakes!!
I highly doubt that I will be finishing his gift anytime soon. My little Husq-y is still in the repair shop. So maybe I'll just share what I've got so far. Next time.
