The Canine’s Culinary Christmas Cupcakes

The Canine's Culinary Christmas Cupcakes

Don’t forget the furry ones when Santa Paws comes to visit. Check out these cupcakes for dogs available from Hammacher Schlemmer.

The Canine’s Culinary Christmas Cupcakes:

Crafted individually in a bakery specializing in dog treats, each cupcake is made from natural ingredients such as steel cut oats, peanut butter, and milk, and topped with a yogurt-based icing.

Wait a minute. There does not seem to be any kibbles and/or bits in that description. Actually, they sound pretty good. Hmm, perhaps these holiday-themed cupcakes won’t make it to the floor. Oh, wait. Coal. Never mind. Here, boy! Here, boy!

Happy holidays to all (Fido too)!

Beer Cupcake?

Wilton Beer Mug Icing Decorations

Well, not exactly. But the Wilton Beer Mug Icing Decorations are halfway there.

It’s Official: Pie Is The New Cupcake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Stuffed Pies - This new type of pie takes inspiration from the cookie, which never goes out of style. This recipe brings the current craze for the "cookie stuffed cookie" to pie - creating hand-held pies stuffed with cookie dough.

Cupcake Measuring Spoons Also Make Muffins Maybe

Cupcake Shaped Measuring Spoons Pink Baking Tool Gadget

I would say this cupcake thing has gotten far out of control, but I doubt many would agree with me; there is no denying that cupcakes are portable and delicious.
