Please help. icon_confused.gif This newbie needs pointers. I have seen many great cakes on CC. I have a request for a dog cake from my granddaughter. (I have eight grandkids so I get lots of practice.) She will be turning seven. She wants two dogs, a Yorkie and a Pug with a dog house. Of course, Memaw said no problem! thumbs_up.gif I have studied many pics of dogs. I am thinking of doing the dogs out of cupcakes. (The party will only be for about twenty quest.) Buying the Wilton house pan for the dog house and putting this on a 9 x 13 pan.
I can see how you could use cupcakes, but I do not have a clue on how to make the muzzle (or nose) for either dog.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just bought the book Hello, Cupcake! and they have great little dog cupcakes in there. If you'd be interested I can take a picture of the pages for you and than take it from there...

I have hello cupcake book like eyecandy. I can scan the book if needed as well. Good luck!

A scan might be nicer, haha... I don't have one so a picture of the book would have to do and it's not that great. icon_lol.gif

Karen Tack's directions. (more on the link)
7. First make the head. Working with a different color for each cupcake, pipe a small dot of frosting on the lower half of a mini cupcake, just below the center. Press a large piece of marshmallow, pointed side up, onto the frosting for the muzzle. Pipe two dots of frosting on opposite sides near the top of the cupcake and attach the ears, sugared side up. Pipe several lines of frosting to cover the nonsugared portion of the ears.

Then, starting at one ear, pipe 1/2-inch strokes of frosting around the edge of the cupcake, working your way below the muzzle and up to the other ear, always pulling the frosting away from the center. Next, start at the top of the head and pipe long lines, first to the left, then to the right, working your way down to the marshmallow, then covering the sides of the marshmallow. Pipe smaller lines on the front of the marshmallow (leave the marshmallow exposed on the white Westie). Pipe small tufts of hair between the ears. Add 2 of the black sunflower seeds for the eyes and a Red Hot for the nose (use a black sunflower seed for the nose of the white Westie).
