Dedicated to the Mutt Hut

Standard

So, for the past year, I have worked for this amazing company called Muttropolis. Since my last day there is coming up next weekend, I decided to do a practice run for the cupcakes that I would be making for my coworkers on my last day. And guess what? I LOVE how they turned out! The frosting could have been a little thicker, but I’ll add more peanut butter and powdered  sugar next time. Here they are:  
So the cupcakes: I made a simple vanilla cupcake with a peanut butter frosting. As always, the link to the recipe is at the bottom. I did not use peanut butter cups. I also eliminated the baking powder simply because I did not want to go to the store to buy baking powder when I only needed 1/2 a teaspoon. I also used vanilla extract instead of vanilla beans, which in no way harmed my flavor. 

For the frosting: I did not use the one on the recipe, although I’m sure it’s delicious. I whipped some heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar then added a little peanut butter for flavor. Next time I will add more powdered sugar and peanut butter, because I did not like the consistency so much. 

So once the cupcakes were in the oven, I started on my paw prints. I melted some red candy melts, which were then transferred to a plastic bag, which I cut a small hole in the corner of.  Then I made these bad boys. Some of them sucked, but I think I finally got the shape down. 

 
So there you have it. My Mutt Hut Cupcakes. Now all my coworkers will know which cupcakes they are getting for my last day.
