Doggie Birthday Cake

My doggie's birthday falls on the 29th February, so she only gets to celebrate her birthday once every four years. ;-)

For her 4th birthday, I made some cupcakes using a recipe from Allrecipes site. I tweaked the recipe slightly by substituting grated apple for carrot, and I also reduced the amount of honey as I feel that the cakes should be sweetened by the grated apple already. Soft, moist and fluffly, I was pleasantly surprised that these cupcakes actually taste good! I don't mind making the cupcakes again for my own consumption, LOL!

Happy Belated birthday to your doggie ! And I am amazed that she can actually see in front of the muffin and let you snap pixs away. If it's my dog, the muffin would be gone long before I knoew it !
