If you're an animal lover like me, your pets always come first, whether it's buying them a new toy over a new pair of heels for yourself or even making them their own baked goods. My family and I will often throw birthday parties for our furry friends (and yes, other pets are invited), and they deserve a good cupcake too. In case your pet’s birthday is right around the corner or you're just being a good dog mom, here's a "pupcake" recipe that'll make them drool.
