Planning children’s parties can be a lot of work, so I always shop online for what I need. Target.com is definitely my one-stop-shop for everything I need when planning a party or event. American Greetings has a cute line of Paw Patrol party supplies at Target, so I went to Target.com to buy everything I needed for the party and the Paw Patrol cupcakes.
My son loves chocolate, so I knew I had to whip up a batch of delicious homemade chocolate cupcakes for my DIY Paw Patrol cupcakes. These moist chocolate cupcakes are full of flavor and will melt in your mouth. The Paw Patrol cupcake toppers were simply chocolate sandwich cookies and chocolate candies placed to form a puppy paw print. The kids and their parents absolutely loved them!
