Puppy Cupcakes

Time really flies. No really, it does!  It seems to go faster and faster every year! Last time I featured dog treat cupcakes on my blog was for my beloved dog Versailles. My newest pup, Sienna just turned one, and I decided to bake her some cupcakes.

Her sister Stasia, and brother Dallas also enjoyed these treats. They are super easy to make, and contain zero calories (for the owner). Believe me you do not not want to eat these! The ingredients are all human grade, but they do not contain any sugar which is obviously bad for puppies.

The frosting is the most important element. I like this icing, because you can actually pipe it, which is not very common for dog icing.

Sienna had a very special first birthday. The cupcakes were definitely the highlight of her birthday!

Loving the icing!

If your pup is having a birthday, I recommend these cupcakes. They are sure to be a hit!

Cupcake Recipe Adapted from: Crazy For Crust Frosting recipe from: Pizzazzerie

You will need:

For Puppy Cupcakes:

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda1/2 teaspoon baking powder1/4 cup peanut butter4 tablespoons vegetable oil1 mashed banana5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon honey
1 egg

For Frosting: 

(8 0z) package of cream cheese at room temperature
2 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Peanut Butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tins with 12 mini liners, or
fill a standard pan with 6 liners
Blend together: peanut butter, oil, mashed banana, and honey.
 Add egg, mix until well-blended.

Add Flour, baking soda, and baking powder.

Evenly scoop batter into each liner
bake for 12-15 minutes until cakes spring back
(when touched),  and start to turn a golden color. 
Cool cakes completely on a cooling rack, before frosting.

Beat cream cheese in a bowl for two minutes. Add peanut butter and honey,
and mix for an additional two minutes. Add desired coloring. 

Spread icing on cupcakes, or pipe onto cupcakes.
Top with accents (I did not let my dogs actually
eat the bows. They are just decoration)

Your puppy is adorable! What a lucky girl, to get such pretty cupcakes on her birthday. I am going to make these for my black lab, Sammy.

These look good enough to eat. I have never made homemade treats for my dogs, but I may have to start.

I can't wait to make these for my dog, Rocco! They are so cute. I love the little bones too! :)

The bows are awesome! Where did you get them?

Hi Whitney,

I am so sorry for the delayed response! I found them at Target in the holiday section around Easter time. I thought they were to fabulous to pass up. I have not seen them at any other store, but Wilton does make similar icing bows.
