Make National Cupcake Day™ the sweetest day of the year with these drool-worthy pup-cakes
Making “pupcakes” is easy and fun for the whole family. Get your entire family involved in making a special treat for their furry friend in honour of National Cupcake Day™ for SPCAs and Humane Societies, presented by Milkbone® and Robin Hood®. You may even already have the ingredients kicking around in your kitchen. Another great part is these pup-cakes can be enjoyed by your kids, too!
Now, you may be asking what a “pup-cake” is. Well, it’s exactly as it sounds – a delicious treat for pups made in a muffin tin, baked in the oven and 100% drool-worthy!
We’re sure this recipe from our friends at Milk-Bone® will get your dog’s tail wagging. View the recipe here. This recipe along with some cupcakes for humans can be found on our recipes page at nationalcupcakeday.ca
We tested this recipe with four-year-old Lola, a Beagle-Bulldog mix with an appetite, who supervised the baking of this recipe. With her Beagle nose, she knew she was in for a sweet surprise as soon as the peanut butter jar cracked open!
It didn’t take long to mix up all the ingredients for the pup-cakes and get them in the oven. Once cooled, our taste tester Lola stepped in. She wasn’t thrilled to be asked to sit and give paw before receiving her pup-cake – although she happily obliged after getting a taste of these delicious pup-cakes!

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves. My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are. Thank you SPCA.
