Banana Dog Cake

I'm so sorry that I have not posted in about 2 1/2 years, I can't believe it has been that long!  I definitely needed to take a break from blogging because it is time consuming so I give credit to all those bloggers who post on a regular basis.  Thank you for all those who continue to visit this blog!  I may try to post more but not as often as I used to.  But I really want to share this banana dog cake recipe!  My dog turned 14 years old and he absolutely loved this cake (along with his dog friends).  I decorated this cake using dog treats and dry dog food.  Hope you make this cake for your dog's next birthday!
