JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - Students with learning disabilities at Jupiter High School have started a company creating cakes for canines.

The Jupiter teens have created the company 'Pupcakes and More'. It's dog delicacies created in the kitchen at Jupiter High School.

The recipe for success: teamwork. The students work together to make the pupcakes, and they have gone out into the community to sell the treat. Along the way, they're learning lessons about making money, marketing and math.

"I hope they learn skills for life, so when they leave this campus, they can do the best they can do," said teacher Terri Clement.

The pupcakes sell for $2 a bag. All the money benefits the Jupiter High School Special Education Program.
