Mozzarella Pupcakes

Peanut Butter and Mozzarella Pupcakes

My bestie turned two yesterday – can you believe it!?  He still acts like a clumsy, playful pup most of the time, only now he’s got 32 kilos of fluff to throw around which – obviously – he completely forgets when he’s charging around the house (…and I’ve got a massive hole in the plasterboard on my staircase to prove it…). Before having a dog, I’d have been one of those people who’d have thought it totally weird to bake a dog birthday cakes. It is a bit weird; I mean it’s just another day to him, right? And he doesn’t know what cakes are! But honestly? He’s such a legend; he makes Sunny and I laugh every single day, cheers us up when we’re feeling low – and just generally makes life a little bit – a lot – better (even when he wipes his butt on the sofa cushions or inhales a whole pile of expensive cheese straight off the kitchen counter…). So why wouldn’t we celebrate and spoil him a bit? He deserves it! 🙂

Bungle only gets these special cheesy Pupcakes on his birthday.  He’s got a couple of food allergies so we’ve got to be careful what we give him – but these I know are safe!  And he loves them!  They’re full of dog friendly ingredients and treats, with a piped cream cheese and peanut butter frosting.  Watch out if your dog can’t handle dairy, though, as these are full of the stuff!
