Happy July 4! At my house, we're celebrating with dog-themed cupcakes.
These mouthwatering 'pup-cakes' were created by my teenaged daughter, our house's resident baker. She used the book "Hello, Cupcake!" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson for inspiration, but jumped off to create her own doggy designs. Word to the wise, although the subtitle of the book says the designs are simple ones that "anyone" can make, that "anyone" must be patient, careful and have good hand-eye coordination to execute breed-specific cupcakes. (Recognize the chocolate lab, schnauzer and pug in the picture?)
I think I'll keep my job as taster, rather than trying to get promoted to sous-chef.
