Westie Cupcakes!

We have two dogs in our house- one is a West Highland Terrier, and is so good with kids.  I saw these cupcakes on the cover of a Family Circle magazine this spring, and just HAD to make them for my daughter’s birthday.  She calls our dog Jo-Jo (his name is Bailey, but for some reason we have given him this nickname), and she was SO excited about her Jo-Jo cupcakes!

These weren’t that hard to make-  just time consuming. But, the kids loved them, and that made it totally worth it.  I think it was making 24 of them that set me over the edge ;)

Half of a marshmallow was used to make the snout part, then cut a mini marshmallow diagonally, dipping it in pink sugar to make the ears.   Mini M&M’s made the eyes, and Raisinets for the nose.  The best part was the tounge.  I took strawberry Starburst, rolled them out with a rolling pin, then cut them into quarters.  You pinch into the shape of a tounge, and use a knife to make the line in the center.  I used whipped icing and a pastry bag to make the fur.  This was really my first time piping icing, so I was pretty happy there were no major catastrophies.  Luckily, the magazine had step by step instructions with pictures- I totally need visuals when I’m attempting food projects! :)

Enjoy!
