Husky Cupcakes

I made these cute cupcakes for the Iditarod craft fair... they were a huge success.  I can't take all the credit because the idea came from here

I took some photos of how I made these....

Take a regular size cup cake put some frosting in the middle as glue and stick a donut hole on top.  Take a mini marshmellow and using scissor cut a circle.  it will be in the shape of an almond.  Cut the almond in half to make ears.  and use the remainder of the mini marshmellow as the nose.  Attach with frosting.
I used a size 13 star tip for the fur.
Pipe stars around the base and front. Smooth frosting with your tip around face and nose.
I used dark chocolate frosting and piped using the same #13 star tip around the ears and back of head all the way down to the base.
Fill the rest of the base of the cupcake with white frosting.  I piped a small chocolate nose, and used pink fondant for his tongue (you could use taffy if you don't have fondant) and some frosting under the tongue to hold it in place and to give him a bottom lip, finally add eyes.  Isn't he adorable?

Of course I didn't just stop here.  I also made Iditarod musher cupcakes as well but I forgot to take step by step photos...
