Ingredients:

Cupcakes
White frosting, 2 cups
Orange food coloring
Marshmellows
Chocolate sprinkles
Tiny brown M&Ms
Black food gel
Sliced almonds

Equipment:

Toothpicks

The amounts are for a half dozen doge cupcakes. Adjust as suits your needs and number of cupcakes.

I had baked cupcakes beforehand. You’ll want your cupcakes completely cooled before decorating.

Put the frosting in two bowls, one cup per bowl.

Add a small drop of orange food coloring to one bowl. Add about two drops – you may need less, so add a drop and add more if need be – to the second bowl. Mix. You’ll want one bowl of frosting to be a very pale orange, another a deeper orange.

Add chocolate sprinkles to the left and right of the tiny brown M&M for the whiskers.

Add a large curved sprinkle for the mouth.

Add two tiny brown M&Ms for the eyes. Using a toothpick, take some pale yellow frosting and add to the left side of the eyes.

Frosting the right eyeball. Ignore the ears, I decided against the Starbursts later on.

Outline the eyes with black food gel. If it gets a little runny, squirt out some on a paper towel and then quickly outline the eyes. The first squirt is sometimes a little watery.

For the ears, take a whole sliced almond and coat with frosting.

Push into the top of the cupcake. Take a smaller slice of almond and add on top of the ear to create the inside of the ear. Repeat for all cupcakes.

Dip a toothpick into the black food gel and dot between the nose and mouth.
