How to Make Poodle Cupcakes
Be the party with the prettiest pupcakes on the block. Poodle cupcakes are a hit for 50's-themed parties and lovers of the fair-haired pups alike.
What You'll Need
A few simple ingredients are all you need to make a too-cute poodle cupcake. You can make your poodle any hue you like, but we're gaga for this sweet pink shade! Follow our step-by-step guide, then see the recipe to get started.
Lay the Foundation
A cupcake with significant frosting needs a strong base. Shape Rice Krispie treat into a ball about the size of a golf ball to serve as the head, then attach a peanut shaped candy to each side of the treat for ears.
Add the Fur
Pipe frosting over the entire cupcake
Attach the Nose
Cut a small piece of fruit roll and place on cupcake for the nose.
Make the Bows
Use the fruit roll or another moldable candy to form bows. When complete, place one blow on each dog ear.
Create the Eyes
Add small chocolate candies for the eyes.
Perfect the Poof
Using the piping bag with a #14 or #16 star tip, pipe a hair “poof” on the top of the head, between the ears. Carefully place pink sugar pearls, or round candy, around the "neck" for a dog collar.
Best in Show!
Take home a blue ribbon for your pink cutie. See the recipe to get started.
