How to make the face for my sausage dog cupcakes.

I made these sausage dog cupcakes for Billy’s sisters 21st birthday party. It was pretty difficult to make a dog face as I try to avoid fondant icing. I had wanted to do the face in cake but I didn’t have time to do it in time to still be fresh for Friday. In the end I bought a polystyrene heart from HobbyCraft and used this as the base for the head shape.

I made 63 chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream and I used recipes I’ve posted before. I did 7 batches of the chocolate sponge from my twix cupcakes and two batches of chocolate buttercream from this caramel egg cake. I think the buttercream is my new favourite because it’s so smooth and silky with a very rich chocolate taste. Yum!

The Bow

I made the bow first by rolling out the pink icing and cutting a 15cm strip which was slightly thinner in the middle. Fold the ends into the middle and pinch it to create little folds. Cut a smaller strip and put it round the middle over the seam. Leave aside.

The Eyes

Cut out two circles of white icing, a slightly smaller brown and an even smaller black. Place on top of each other and finish with a little dot of white icing. Make sure both eyes are lined up the same or else your dog will be cross eyed.

The Face

I used the remaining white icing to mould the face as in the photo below. I covered it with rolled out brown icing and made a little black stripe. You can do whatever markings you want. I cut out big black ears and used a little water to stick the ears, patches and eyes on.

Step 4
Mark as Complete

I made two brown and two black paws just by shaping the icing into a pear shape and drawing on lines for the ‘toes’ (do dogs have toes?) and finally I made a little tail.

Arrange the cupcakes into a long sausage shape with the face, paws and tail placed around them.
