Now that birthday season for my family is rolling around, I thought I would share photos from last year. For my son’s first birthday we picked a dog theme because it was one of him first words and he was obsessed with animals. I came across an idea for these puppy cupcakes and went from there. I had to guess what they use but I am happy to share what I used, maybe it will inspire someone else.
I made a basic cupcake and frosted it with chocolate frosting reserving some frosting in a fine tipped piping bag.
The ears: Nutter butter cookies split and laid frosting side down
Eyes: mini marshmallows cut in half, with a dot of chocolate frosting on them
Mussel: mini vanilla wafer, with chocolate frosting mouth and a dot to hold an m&m on
