Puppy Cakes With Dog Friendly Sprinkles
Mix the Puppy Cake mix as stated in the directions on the box. Pour mixture into a heart shaped pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow the pup cakes to cool before applying frosting and decorations. Frost your pup cakes using the frosting that came with the dog cake mix or use peanut butter. Decorate the pup cakes using dog friendly sprinkles.
Your dog will love these Valentine's Day goodies!
