Did you know National Dog Day is August 26th. Ironically Our golden retriever, Chloe’s birthday is the same day. This year she turns five. Where has the time gone? So to celebrate a birthday day for dogs and National Dog Day, we made her another yummy homemade dog cupcake recipe.
A dog cake recipe? Yes! We believe in having fun and including Chloe, and this was a fun and silly way to celebrate her life. If you have been reading this blog at all, you know she is one of the family and we often will pick travel destinations so we can bring her along.
She actually ate three of the four cupcakes before we could grab our neighbors’ dog over to come to celebrate. We will have to stop over and bring her boyfriend’s house some of this homemade dog cake.
Simple Homemade Dog Cupcakes : Blueberry Pupcakes
This post contains affiliate links. I adapted the dog cake recipe I found on here and adapted the recipe to make only four cupcakes. I did not feel I needed 12 dog cakes, even though I know Chloe would have been excited about it..
The recipe is pretty simple and actually uses ground up dog kibble. It is simple to make and we actually made and served it the same day. I love the addition of blueberries in this recipe. Like humans, Blueberries are a human food beneficial to our dogs as well.
Bake the homemade dog cakes until they are light brown in color and when you stick a knife or toothpick to test it should come out clean.
Allow to cool and then frost. I used cream cheese with a few blueberries mixed in for our frosting.
Of course I had to add a few more blueberries in a shape of a paw for fun. All dogs love peanut butter, and this dog cake recipe was perfect for our favorite pups!
You can’t see the drool in this picture but she was one excited dog. She sure was anxious to try some of this dog cake recipe! If you want to make just a single cupcake check out this 4 ingredient Dog Cake Recipe.
