Peanut Butter PUPcakes

Peanut Butter Pupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting (Dog Safe) |

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or any other special occasion, I hope you had a joyous one.

Today I’m a bit late sharing a recipe I made as a little Christmas gift for my two fur babies, Grizz-Lee (right) and Chocolate (left).  If you’re new to URBAN BAKES, then you may not already know, these two are my angels.  I’ll go through great lengths to ensure they live a happy and comfortable life.  One example is Grizz-Lee’s first birthday party.  You can read about it HERE.

After hurricane Sandy hit in 2012, my Facebook newsfeed was suddenly flooded with updates on lost/misplaced pets and more than ever, shelters were in need of extra help in donations and volunteers.  One organization that caught my eye was, Rock & Rawhide.  At the time I was a student at Mercy College and employed at a veterinary hospital in Westchester.  My time was limited but I knew there was something I could do to help.  I searched my home for anything I could donate.  Clothes, toys, blankets, leashes… anything!  I remember that Saturday afternoon heading out to the Petco at Union Square with several small bags of laundry and toys, and a spare carrier.

I met Kylie, the co-founder of Rock & Rawhide, who by the way, is the sweetest person with the biggest heart for running the organization.  It felt great to give back.  Since then I get email updates about several events and foundations held in New York.  I try to participate when I can.  One of which was with a small donation of $10, you could have your pets’ photo taken with Santa and 100% of the proceeds goes back to the organizations to help furry friends in need.

But before my trip to see Santa, I surprised my babies with Peanut Butter PUPcakes topped with my homemade Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits.  They LOVED it!  Especially Chocolate.  She’s my little piglet.  She’ll eat just about anything.
