Birthday cake (for dogs)!Posted: December 3, 2011
We had a great time celebrating Lance and Jackson’s 2nd birthday last night. I had no idea how to make a dog cake (I really don’t know how to make a cake, period, since I don’t bake). I just kind of gathered together some ingredients that I thought would work and hoped for the best! Seriously, it’s not like they wouldn’t eat pretty much anything…
This is what I got together to make the masterful birthday cakes:
Everything was mixed together and divided into two Pyrex dishes to bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes.
I took the cakes out of the oven and let them cool for a bit before applying the frosting.
At this point, both Greg and I tried a bite. And they were actually pretty good! I didn’t use a lot of honey, so they weren’t overly sweet. They tasted like banana bread with a little peanut butter aftertaste.
For the frosting, I just mixed up some peanut butter, kefir and cornstarch.
I added a little dog cookie on top for decoration (even though Greg thinks we should have gotten candles!?).
I took a video of the boys digging in, which you can see here (and you get to hear my amazing commentary):
And Greg snapped some photos of the action.
As usual, Jackson was done eating way before Lance! He’s my little piggy.
Greg actually stopped by the natural dog food store and bought them ice cream, but we decided to save that for later. Besides, they were licking peanut butter off of their legs and chest for the rest of the night.
AAfter the birthday cake was gone, the humans ate pizza. I was too lazy to make pizza crust, so a Flat out wrap was used for mine, and a piece of Naan bread for Greg. Mine was topped with tons of veggies and two flavors of Rice Shreds. It was (seriously) very delicious!
Jackson continued to give me a pathetic look- like he knew he still had ice cream waiting for him…
What a great birthday night!
Hope you’re having a great Saturday- it’s beautiful and sunny here!
