Addie's Birthday Celebration

For Addie's 6th birthday last week, we had a little mini-celebration to remind her how special she is. She's been feeling a little neglected for the past several months since Grayson made his arrival, so I wanted to make her day extra fun.

I went out that day and bought her several little gifts. A couple of new toys, some Busy Bones, and some treats. Then I cooked her homemade puppy cupcakes. I normally do a cake, but I decided to switch it up this year. She's a tiny dog, so a cupcake is about the right size for her.

I've had the recipe pinned for quite some time now, so I was excited to finally get to try it out. I must say, it was definitely a hit. She couldn't gulp it down fast enough! Since the recipe made around 10 cupcakes I gave a few away to some of her doggie friends and froze the rest. 

Here is the recipe as I found it from one of the sweetest bloggers I "know", Amanda from Maggiano Takes Austin. I followed the recipe exactly other than the shredded carrot, and I used cottage cheese as the "icing". I would highly suggest this for any of your doggy friends :)


1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots (I just did a little shredded carrot)
1 tsp vanilla 
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix together flour and baking soda
3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well
4. Pour mixture into a 12 cupcake cups in non-stick muffin pan 
5. Bake for 30 minutes 
6. Let cool for about 5-10 minutes.
