Doggy Cupcakes

Last year, my dog’s birthday rolled around and I wanted to make her something delicious. I celebrate my dogs’ birthdays more than I celebrate my own, so I knew I needed to make her something delicious from scratch. Yeah, I love baking, and it’s mostly because I love to feed everyone. It’s how I show people I care. So I had to make G something yummy. And I’ll be making these again tomorrow for her birthday (her 10th!!) this year. Here’s the result!

Spoiler alert: Both dogs devoured them. And you can have one too! Make a delicious chocolate frosting (like this one!) if you’d like to sweeten one up for yourself. Share in the celebration with your pups. It’s fun. I promise. Enjoy!

I plan on posting more recipes for dogs on the blog, so if you’re into that kind of thing, let me know what else you’d like to see! And you can find all dog recipes on my blog by clicking right here. I have doggy cookies and doggy treats coming up, but I’m happy to experiment with something new! And I’m sure my dogs will be eager taste-testers. 😉

Let me know if you try this recipe (and you/your pups like it)! Comment below, rate the recipe, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. Happy eating!
