Look at these cute cupcakes we made for the Dog Days participants that are viewing their images this week!
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sift before measuring 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 1/3 cups sugar 2 eggs, beaten until frothy 1 cup mashed cooked or canned pumpkin 3/4 cup milk 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preparation: Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a bowl. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs. Blend in mashed pumpkin. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the milk, blending until batter is smooth after each addition; stir in chopped walnuts or pecans. Spoon batter into well-greased and floured or paper-lined muffin pan cups. Fill about 2/3 full. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Frost with cream cheese frosting, whipped cream, or leave plain. Makes about 24 cupcakes.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract
Every year we hold a benefit for the Humane Society called the DOG DAYS OF SUMMER. For this event, we waive the sitting fee (normally $150.00) in exchange for a 20lb bag of dog food AND give you a free 5x7 of your dog. Of course we don't discriminate against any animals, all pets are welcome!
Call us at 901-737-8021 to schedule your appointment!
And the folks at Ful have donated an "canine crib" dog carrier. Each person that participates in the 2010 Dog Days Of Summer event will have their name put into a drawing for the carrier.
