Spiced Pumpkin Cup Cakes
Jasper’s Birthday Cake (For Dogs And Their Human Friends)
July 18 is a special date on our family’s calendar as it marks the birthday of our little fur-baby. Every birthday celebration would see a selection of cup cakes that would be shared as a family. He was an intrinsic part of our lives and unfortunately passed away recently due to congenital heart failure.
To commemorate what would have been another birthday milestone, I wanted to keep the tradition of birthday cup cakes alive by baking these in his memory. I know he would be licking his lips with glee and anticipation waiting for his cup cake in doggy heaven.
Jasper loved all cakes, homemade and store bought, so for this reason all cakes in our household were doggy friendly and of course human friendly.
