Earlier this week Steel turned 3 years old and we had quiet the party!! Dad always says the little humans and Mommy celebrate their birthdays for a week and we celebrated Steel’s birthday for a week too!! Mom made some birthday cupcakes for Steel’s birthday and since she had never made them before she decided to give them a try before his birthday actually got here.
Making sure the cupcakes were dog friendly and not going to upset Steel’s tummy was pretty important so she used a lot of ingredients that she already knew wouldn’t bother his tummy.
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 whole banana (we freeze bananas so she just thawed out one that was frozen)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup local organic honey
- 1 brown egg
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
She started out by mixing all the wet ingredients together first and then added in the baking soda and finally slowly added in the flour a little at a time.
One of the little human’s borrowed her six cupcake pan for sorting toys so she had to use the big one. To make sure the cupcakes didn’t stick to the cupcake liners she sprayed the cupcake liners with coconut cooking spray before putting the batter in the cupcake liners.
When Mommy cooks we know its usually for us, so we made sure to stay in the kitchen under her feet the whole time.
Then Mommy baked them on 350* for 20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
After the cupcakes cooled, Mommy iced them with peanut butter and placed a dehydrated banana chip on top!!
Since Steel is the birthday boy he got the first cupcake!!
Mommy took lots of cute pictures of Steel with his cupcake so make sure to watch for some outtakes of him on Instagram over the next few weeks!!
