  • How to bake a Twinkie cake. Twinkie Puppies - Step 1
    Step 1

    Unwrap Twinkies and Tootsie Rolls. Soften candies in the microwave or in your hands and flatten to about 1/16th inch thickness.

    Use kitchen shears, knife, or metal cutters to cut the following pieces for each Twinkie dog:
    2 white (vanilla) eyes (I used a large round plunger cutter)
    2 brown (chocolate) pupils (small round plunger cutter)
    1 pink (strawberry) tongue (tear drop cutter)
    1 brown nose and mouth (kitchen shears)
    2 brown ears (cut with kitchen shears then shape into a curved ear)
    2-6 brown spots (kitchen shears)
    Draw a line down the center of the pink tongue. Poke a hole on either side of the Twinkie, about 1/2 inch from the top. Fill the hole with chocolate frosting. Stick the pointed end of an ear in each hole.

  • Step 2

    Use small dabs of chocolate frosting to attach all the facial features to your Twinkies putting the spots in a variety of places to give each puppy character.
