Dog & Cat Critter Cupcakes

I love creating these types of cupcakes. Trying to figure out the best way to make them look like the animals they represent is fun!

When I set out to make the dogs and cats I had a purpose in mind. I wanted to create a tutorial for other people to learn from. I went through each stage of making the cupcakes and took pictures. Building a tutorial was challenging, but I was very glad I did it in the end.

My favorite part about making the dogs and cats are the little dog bones and fishes I put in front of the animals.

I wanted to use a light brown color for the dogs and a sandy orange color for the cats so that the colors would compliment each other.

*Sweet Advice: When making these cupcake animals a large part of making them look so good is attention to detail. Don’t try to rush and be patient!

*Sweet Change: When I make the dogs and cats sometimes I add pink for the ears.

    I love your cakes! I recently tried to make some kitty cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday. They didn’t turn out nearly as nicely as yours but I had fun with it. I did link to yours in my blog though so people would know what I was TRYING to achieve. (

    Great work! I have something to aspire to!
