My niece had her 6th birthday party this weekend. My sister planned a dog themed birthday party for her.
She made a really cute paw print birthday cake, and paw print cupcakes to match the colors in the dog theme party supplies. She used a Wilton #12 tip to make dots on the paws for both the cake and the paw print cupcakes, then flattened the icing to look like paw prints. She used the same tip to edge the bottom of the cake.
This paw print cake and these paw print cupcakes would also be really cute for a cat themed, Webkinz, Pawparazzi pets, or bear themed birthday party. The paw print cake is not a complicated cake to make. The paw print cupcakes are even simpler.
The paw print cupcakes were iced like normal, then she used the same Wilton #12 tip to make the circles for the “prints”. Just make circles with the tip and squish them flat. You could do this cake in any color combination you want to go with your party supplies, or a combination of your child’s favorite colors. Both the paw print cake and paw print cupcakes are super easy to make and super cute!
