For today’s blog Shereen is posting a Step by Step tutorial on these incredibly cute pug cupcakes so if your barking mad about dogs then you’re going to love these!
- Ivory Sugarpaste
- Chocolate Brown Sugarpaste
- Pink Sugarpaste
- Black Sugarpaste
- Sugarflair Nutkin Brown Blossom Dust
- Tala Circle Cutters
- Plain Black Cupcake Cases
- A soft Brush
Ice your cupcake in the middle and cut a round disk for your cupcake – about 4mm thick
Cover your cupcake and using some dark brown make a mouth shape as pictured below
Work fast with your sugarpaste so it’s warm and ‘tacky’ so you don’t need glue, it will just stick to the cupcake, put the mouth on as pictured and shape a tongue from pink sugarpaste
Attach your tongue and use the quilting tool to make a little line in it
Add the snout
Make some lines in the snout and some little dots with your ball tool
Use your large ball tool to indent the top of the snout for the nose to fit in to. Roll a sausage shape as pictured and stick across the top and side of the snout
Repeat sausage shape for under the mouth
Add some icing above both eyes and use your shell tool to make little hair effects on the icing
Roll some more sausage shapes and stick them above the eyes … bring down into cheeks and around the mouth … see the left hand side
There should be a little gap on each side of the face make a little shape to fit in and texture it too
Fill all spaces on the cupcake with folds/rolls as I did with this chin
Add a piece right at the top between the eyes and use your blade tool to make grooves in it for the forehead
Shape some ears using your hands, they don’t have to be identical
Attach your ears and add a little sugarpaste at the top of each ear to blend in with the face
Add tiny little white icing dots to the eyes for character and using your soft brush, dust first black around the eyes and then brown around the eyes and just in the folds to give a little depth
I used some confectioners varnish for the eyes and nose to shine them up a little bit
