Dachshund Cupcakes

Kara’s friends gave her this book for her birthday. Who knew you could transform cupcakes into just about anything… a golf course, lobster, apples, squirrels, the list goes on and on. When I saw these Dachshund Cupcakes I gasped.

Those long dogs with short little legs are the cutest pups ever. I have a doxie, so I am biased. My heart melts at every dachshund I see. A mini dachshund lives in my building and whenever I see the little guy I want to offer the owner (complete stranger) to dog-sit.  I’m also a sucker for anything dachshund related.

My little girl at the dog beach a year or so ago

Needless to say, we had to make these cupcakes…stat. We used our favorite chocolate cupcake recipe (minus the coconut) and the rest was just some basic assembly. It really couldn’t be any easier! If you’re a dog lover…or a cupcake lover…you’ll swoon!!

Here’s what you’ll need

Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness

We used a stencil to cut the face, ears and tail

After the cookies are baked and cooled it’s time to assemble…like so!

Use chocolate covered almonds for legs and nose and brown pretzel m&ms for eyes

Use Cheerios for dog food and Scooby Doo Graham Crackers for treats :)
