For the girls’ birthdays (8th and 2nd), we had a combined party at the end of February. The party was puppy-themed and I experimented with decorating these cupcakes to go with the theme. I’ve been meaning to post these photos for a while but I kept forgetting.
It really was much easier than it looks. I used canned frosting and baggies with the corners cut off (no icing bags or tips required here!) to get all of these looks and I think they turned out just fine. I also used large marshmallows, jellybeans, mini m&ms, tootsie rolls, and starbursts to make the various ears, noses, tongues, and eyes.
I got some ideas from the web – if you’re interested in making these or other animals just google it and there are all sorts of photos & tips available.
Who knows what you could make with an adventurous spirit and a little experimentation!
