Peanut Butter Frosted Apple Pupcakes

A wonderful treat for your dog that is Absolutely dog approved! Fresh apple chunks, creamy peanut butter, and bacon crumbles in the shape of a cupcake will delight your pet.

This weekend, this adorable little girl turned two! You can see by the look on her face that she is overjoyed to be a big girl now.

She’s all grown up (I hope) and knows all kinds of tricks. She still insists on having her leash in her mouth for at least 50% of each walk to ensure I’m doing it correctly.

She still has the same amount of energy she had when she was six months old. When it comes to napping, she’s still in Stage 5.

She still has feelings for everyone and everything she encounters, even inanimate objects (pinecones, sticks and balls are basically the best things ever, in case you werent aware). On a daily basis, she is still the happiest dog in the world.

So I always have to make sure that my beautiful, adorable, goofy, not-so-little furbaby gets her very own birthday pupcakes. Last year, I lit her meal on fire, and she was devastated by the experience. She handled it like an adult this year, entirely disinterested and mildly frustrated by the delay in getting food into her stomach.

It’s kind of amusing to see the many phases of her emotions when she receives her birthday pupcakes. Here is how it works:

  1. What exactly is it? OHMYGODISTHATFOOD?!
  2. I’m so thrilled about meals ONLY FOR HER.
  3. Uncontrollable drool from pure excitement.
  4. She regained her composure, but she couldn’t take her grin off her face.
  5. I’m wondering why I’m putting a large lump of colored wax into her meal.
  6. Recalling what happens when a large lump of colored wax becomes lodged in her meal.
  7. I’m annoyed that I’m doing this again.
  8. I’m relieved that the fire has been out and that we can return to stage one.

Let me to demonstrate

Stage One:

What exactly is it? OHMYGODISTHATFOOD?!

Stage Two & Three:

Intense delight accompanied by unrestrained slobber (drool not pictured, but I promise its there). ONLY FOR HER, I’m really thrilled about eating.

Stage Four: 

She regained her composure, but she couldn’t take her grin off her face.

Stage Five: 

I’m wondering why I’m putting a large lump of colored wax into her meal.

Stage Six: 

Recalling what happens when a large lump of colored wax becomes lodged in her meal.

Stage Seven: 

I’m annoyed that I’m doing this again.

Stage Eight:

I’m relieved that the fire has been out and that we can return to stage one.

Fortunately, she forgives me very immediately after I blow out the candle for her (shut up, it’s lovely) and then inhales her birthday goodie with proper zeal.

This year, I made Apple Pupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting and crumbled bacon for her. Peanut butter, bacon, yogurt, and pumpkin are among her favorite foods. This dish employs three of the four ingredients, so I believe she’ll be OK with it.
