Your pup deserves a treat! A batch of Peanut Butter Pupcakes is perfect for a doggy birthday party! Peanut butter cupcakes with peanut butter frosting!
In case you didn’t know, I’m kind of a crazy dog lady.
I mean, maybe.
Just a little.
Sometimes I look at my Instagram and think, “Omg, I’ve got to post some food or some mountains or SOMETHING before all my people unfollow me because of all the dog photos!”
But anyway, Clementine turned 4 on Sunday which is CRAZY to me. How has 4 years passed already?!
We got her right after we moved to Colorado – I made my husband drive up to Black Forest to put a deposit on her before we even had a house! And I’d had her name picked out for literally years.
So for her birthday I made her some Peanut Butter Pupcakes because what pup doesn’t like homemade, dog-friendly cake for their birthday?
I can’t really vouch for their taste but both dogs gobbled them up and they were a lot of fun to bake. Less stress when you’re baking for dogs, that’s for sure!
