Made these mini cupcakes for a doggy birthday party a friend was throwing. Her mini Aussie, Rolo turned 6 months old, and the theme was pink! We had a variety of dogs at the party and all her canine pals enjoyed them very much.
Hope you give these a try for your furry friend. You can color the frosting to whatever you prefer, I recommend using gel coloring, and sprinkle with a touch of sugar, or garnish with a carrot coin.
