Who doesn't love a party? And better yet, who doesn't love cake?! Most of us do, and guess what? So does your fur friend! Of course, just like humans, it's never a good idea to load up on sweets, but a piece of cake here and there can't hurt, right?! Especially when it's someone's birthday...like your dogs'! If you are like us, then you look forward to showering your fur friend with love, and you really pour on the love when it's their birthday am I right? You bet! Just recently, we had a birthday party for our most senior Resident, Champ. He's a whopping 13 years old, so we pulled out all the stops! We invited all his friends, got decorations, had some Mc Donald's plain cheeseburgers, presents, and even made a doggie cake! The party hats may have been a flop, but trust me when I say, that there was not a crumb of cake left by the end of the day, because Champ and all of his friends made fast work of seeing it into their tummies. ;)
With these few ingredients, you can make your fur friend his very own cake.
* 3/4 cup flour (all-purpose is fine)
* 1/2 tsp. baking soda
* 1/4 tsp. baking powder
* 1 large egg
* 2 tbsp. peanut butter (no xylitol)
*2 tbsp coconut nut oil melted
* 1/4 cup applesauce (can substitute with pumpkin or banana)
* 1/2 cup shredded carrots
For the icing I used
low-fat cream cheese Please remember that this is meant to be used as a treat on special occasions and not something to be given on a regular basis or in large quantities. By doing so, it may upset your fur friend's tummy. To see how we made the cake, click on the video:
I embellished the cake with a few Good Dog, Buddy homemade dog treats, which of course, Champ got to have one of. :)
And here he is, the birthday boy, licking his birthday cake plate clean!
It's safe to say that he and all the residents of Woody's Place enjoyed the doggie cake, and had a great time at the party.
