  • Lemon cupcakes
  • Regular buttercream icing
  • Chocolate covered raisins
  • Chocolate chips
  • White and pink squashies
  • Dog patterned cupcake cases if you can find them. “We found ours in Mr Price.” says Val


  • Make a batch of cupcakes and ice them with the buttercream icing.
  • Fluff up the icing on each cupcake with a fork to “roughen” it a bit.
  • Use chocolate chips for eyes and chocolate covered raisins for the noses.
  • Then take the Squashies sweets and use the white bits for the ears and pink for the tongues.

“We had good fun making and taste-testing them!”
