Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pupcakes

THIS POST CONTAINS DOG PHOTOS! I thought that might get your attention. My dog, Gizmo, has a birthday coming up at the end of the month. I love to celebrate his birthday by spoiling him with special birthday treats, most often homemade cupcakes, which I like to refer to as pupcakes! There are so many different dog-friendly cupcakes (though always check with your vet before giving your dog people-foods) and my dogs like them all. This particular recipe is for Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pupcakes.

Fluff Festival

Of course I had to enter, and I had so many flavor ideas! Eventually I settled on a sweet potato and maple bourbon dessert. The week before the recipe was due to the Festival, I got sick and knew I wasn’t going to be able to test recipes all week as planned.  I considered not entering the contest, but ended up submitting a recipe at the last minute.  I didn’t win, but I am so glad I didn’t bail on the contest, and I am thrilled with how this dessert turned out!  A little bit of southern and a little bit of Massachusetts: sweet potato cupcakes with a marshmallow ganache and maple bourbon marshmallow frosting!
