I normally make my own dog cake mix from scratch but I decided to try the pre-made mix, Puppy Cake Wheat-Free Peanut Butter Cake Mix and Frosting. It was so easy to use but definitely a little too pricey for me. I picked it up at Harris Teeter for $6.  I was really disappointed with the amount, or lack of frosting. It didn’t seem like enough to frost 8 cupcakes as the package promised. Oh, and if you don’t use the frosting ASAP after mixing it up, it will get way too hard and I found myself having to through it out. To improvise, I used regular old peanut butter for my frosting!
