clear piping gel
1 - 1 1/2
Pinch off about 1/2 tablespoon piece of skin colored modeling chocolate.
Flatten and shape into Dug's head.
Press some skin colored modeling chocolate through a clay extruder fitted with a single hole disc creating long tubes.
Brush clear piping gel along the bottom (chin) edge of Dug's head and press a tube of modeling chocolate along the edge creating the lower lip.
Wrap the tube around at one corner and create the upper lip, leaving the mouth open.
Cut off any excess and pinch the two edges together to form his open mouth.
Roll the white modeling chocolate out really thin and cut two small circles and two even smaller circles using round plunger cutters.
Cut 1/4 off each circle creating teeth.
Brush some clear piping gel just under the upper lip.
Insert the four teeth up against the upper lip.
Pinch off a small piece of skin colored modeling chocolate and shape into an oval shaped nose.
Use piping gel to attach it just above the mouth.
Use a wooden skewer or lollipop stick to make to indentations for nostrils.
Attach two candy eyes using piping gel just above the nose.
Frost a cupcake with chocolate frosting smoothing out the top.
Set a modeling chocolate Dug face on top so that the chin matches up with one edge of the cupcake.
Spoon chocolate frosting into a pastry bag fitted with a grass pastry tip.
Pipe frosting hair around the face.
