Instructions:In a microwaveable bowl, melt the semisweet chocolate; stir to smooth. Stir in corn syrup and blend until it forms a ball and is not shiny. Turn onto an 8" sq of waxed paper. Press chocolate mixture into a 7" square. Let mixture stand at room temperature until dry to the touch, about 2 hours.
Let separated eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave white chocolate with water at 30% power until chocolate melts; cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, cream butter / sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks, vanilla and white chocolate mixture. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately w/ buttermilk. In a small bowl, beat egg whites on high speed to form stiff peaks. Fold into white chocolate mixture with pecans and coconut.
Fill four greased muffin cups half full with batter. Spoon remaining batter into two greased 9" round baking pans. Bake cupcakes at 350° for 15 minutes and cakes for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, remove to wire racks, cool completely.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla. Set aside 1 teaspoon for decorating.
Roll out chocolate mixture on waxed paper to 1/8" thickness. Cut out two 4" x 2" ears; round one end of each. Cut out two 1-1/4" circles for eyes, two 1" long strips for eyebrows and one 5" heart for muzzle; set aside.
To assemble: Cut off cupcake tops; cut a 1/4" piece from a rounded edge from each cupcake (eat it). Place cut side of 2 cupcakes against side of cake with edges touching; frost top of cake and cupcakes and sides.
Place ears opposite the cupcakes, inserting the flat ends into side of cake 1/4" from top. Fold ears over the top of cake. Position eyes, eyebrows, and muzzle.
Place a small amount of reserved frosting on the back of each mint; insert 2 for eyes and 2 for nose. Place licorice on the muzzle. Use scissors, cut fruit roll-up into a 4" strip and round one end; place straight and under muzzle for tongue. (for complete recipe visit www.squidoo.com/i-want-a-dog)
