Treat of the Week—Special Edition: Bertie Dog Cupcakes

Part of living a beautiful life is learning to celebrate. Every June 11, for Bertie’s birthday, my mother bakes a very special cake which represents Bertie’s interests (dogs have interests) and his personality.

For his seventh birthday, the Bertie Dog was treated to many sweet little representations of himself with these gorgeous Westie cupcakes. Delicious butter cream icing topped rich white cake. Iced Marshmallows and smaller portions of cake create the sculptural effect. Chocolate (a.k.a. “dog poison”) free, Bertie was able to enjoy a small portion of a cupcake with the rest of the family. This was the perfect end to a really lovely day set aside to honor a very special little guy. We all feasted on hamburgers (because that’s what he wanted) and enjoyed one another’s company.

Our mission here at “Stalking the Belle Époque” is to find the beauty that still remains in each day. Some days, the beauty comes straight from our kitchens.

I'm in love with these! How cute! 'Dog Poison'...too funny. But, you have got to be careful. He's one lucky dog to have such gorgeous cake to eat.

Just looking at the picture makes me want to eat them, but they're long, long gone. He is a pretty lucky boy. He's a good boy. He deserves it.
