Looking for a fun and easy way to celebrate your dog?  Why not make some adorable dog cupcakes for humans!

– 1 cup all-purpose flour – 1 1/4 tsp baking powder – 1/8 tsp salt – 2 large eggs at room temp – 3/4 cup sugar – 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1/2” cubes – 1/2 cup milk – the higher the fat content the better – 2 tsp vanilla extract – 1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil


Make the Dog Cupcakes per our instructions and let them fully cool before decorating.

Mix the shredded coconut and food coloring to create fur for your dogs.

Frost the cooled cupcakes.  Dip that frosted cupcake into the coconut mixture, making sure the faux fur extends to the edge of the paper liner.

Apply cookie or almond ears near the top of the cupcake on either  side of the face.  Add the decorative eyes –  I like to add a little of the black icing to hold them on.

Use gel icing to create nose, mouth, tongue, and also to add detail such as dots, eye outline, etc. to create slightly different dog faces.
