Happy 10th Birthday Buddy! I had to make Buddy a special dog birthday cake this year for his 10th birthday. Does this really make him 70 in dog years?? He sure doesn't act like it! I have made this dog cake before for Buddy and Ellie's past birthdays and its really simple. I frosted the cake with cottage cheese and decorated the cake with dog biscuits and extra shredded carrots. I also used peanut butter to write on the cake. Buddy (and Ellie) could not wait to eat this cake! You should definitely make this for your dog's next birthday or any day really :)
¼ cup peanut butter
½ cup applesauce
1/3 cup honey
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, add flour and baking soda and use a whisk to mix dry ingredients. Next add in the remaining ingredients. Stir to mix well.
Pour cake batter into an 8x8 inch baking dish. You can use a similar sized baking dish/pan of your choice.
Bake for 30 minutes. (If you make cupcakes, it would probably take about 18-20 minutes to bake.)
For the frosting – Spread the cottage cheese over the cake. I put some peanut butter in a plastic sandwich bag and snipped a corner of the bag to use for piping on the cake.
Feel free to decorate with extra shredded carrots, dog biscuits, or your dog’s regular kibble.
Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Special beef bones for Buddy's birthday present (of course his little sister gets one too)!
