If you're looking for an edible sweet that resembles your favorite canine pet, perhaps these handmade puppy cakes are just what you're looking for. The dessert features an accompanying decorative icing tutorial that teaches novice to advanced bakers how to replicate a dog's fur using sweets.

The trick to the design of these cupcakes is in the layering of the icing. Once the cupcakes of your choose have cooled, you can fill a pipping bag with a homemade almond buttercream made with egg whites, sugar, butter and almond flavoring. The bag is topped with a 1M Wilton tip used typically for creating roses but lends itself well to recreating fluffy fur. The icing is piped in arches and downward strokes to recreate the furry face and topped with M&M chocolates for eyes and a mouth.
