Cat-friendly Tuna Cheese Cupcakes Recipe

What’s the best way to celebrate your cat’s birthday? With cake of course! Now before we get started, one point that is important to add is cats and dogs have very difference taste receptors and nutritional needs. For example, our feline friends are carnivores and are unable to taste sweets, so your kitty cupcakes will bypass the fruit and peanut butter and focus on every cat's favourite – fish.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 15-18 minutes | Total Time: 20-25 minutes | Recipe Yield: 2 cupcakes
