I don't know where the idea to make these even came from. Well, actually, I do. My sister decided she wanted to make a "dog themed craft", then suddenly emerged with the idea of "pupcakes". How she comes up with these things, I will never know.

Either way, these actually turned out really cute, and they were delicious too! They were fun to make and we got to use our amazing (can't you tell?) artistic skills. If you're a great cake decorator, I bet you could make these look amazing. Even with our sub-par cake artistry, these turned out pretty darn cute.

If you're looking for a fun cupcake idea, try these puppies out.

Cupcake recipe adapted from Baking Bites
Makes 48 mini cupcakes
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. white vinegar
  • chocolate frosting
  • Starburst candies
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips 
  • Peanut Butter M&Ms
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tins with liners.

In a large bowl, mix flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 

In a seperate bowl, combine vegetable oil, milk, vanilla and vinegar. Pour into dry mix, and stir to combine. Divide mixture evenly between muffin tins.

Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt white chocolate. Drop onto wax paper in small circular shapes, small enough to work as "eyes" for the puppies. Melt semi sweet chocolate and prop on top of white chocolate circles. Set aside to harden in fridge.

Next, unwrap pink Starbursts and put in microwave for about 10 seconds, just so they soften. Mould Starbursts into "tongue"shapes. Set aside.

Let cupcakes cool completely before frosting and decorating (according to pictures).
