Ernie is not your average dog who will eat anything. In fact, he’s the pickiest dog you’ll ever meet! He turns his nose up at almost everything, so when his birthday rolls around, a “normal” pupcake recipe just won’t do. After last year’s failed attempted (although all the other dogs enjoyed it), I knew I had to go back to the drawing board. Ultimately, I whipped up a batch of pupcakes that are sure to please even the pickiest of pups! Using Honest Kitchen’s Grain Free Limited Ingredient Turkey Recipe and fresh ground turkey, this recipe was a hit with the office cowoofers, Ernie included!
