Hi and happy Friday! No friday 5 today, sorry folks. Instead this post is for all you people who love your dog. a lot. Like maybe too much.
I get really upset with people who say that animals aren’t like children because 1) it’s not cool to say how other people feel, 2) some people for reasons out of their control cannot have human babies, and a pet is the closest thing those people get to being parents. And I can bet that they will treat their fur baby JUST as well as they would have a human baby if they had been given that opportunity. 3) I can guarantee that I got up with my stinkin dog in the middle of the night just as often as I would have with a newborn, and potty training was rough too.
The best part about this cake is that it’s made 100% from puppy safe human food so you can enjoy a piece with your pup! It’s not super tasty but I’m not even lying when I say it was totally edible! My mom and sister even said that if they hadn’t known it had been made with a dog in mind, they would have actually enjoyed it! Haha. I got the recipe from Pinterest, but here it is for ya.
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda (for anyone concerned, I did research! While not good in large quantities, this amount of baking soda cooked in a cake will do no harm to your furry friend)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup shredded carrots (to be honest, I think I used way more than this because 1. My dogs LOVE carrots, and 2. I didn’t measure. I just took about 4 carrots and “shredded” with a peeler and then chopped them up)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
Basically throw the dry stuff in a bowl and stir and then throw in everything else and stir again and then put it all in a greased 8″ pan and bake for 24ish minutes at 350 or until a toothpick comes out clean. I checked it at 20 and then obsessively checked it every 30 seconds until done because for some reason i’m skilled at the art of over-cooking.
For the frosting: melt together equal-ish parts honey & peanut butter with a dash of milk and frost when the cake is cool.
That’s seriously it! Sooo simple even I could do it 😉
How do you celebrate your dog’s? If you have cute pictures, please leave them in the comments!
6/26/15 update: I wrote this post last night, but I have to add that today I am SO PROUD to be an American. If you aren’t aware, today the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is legal in all 50 states. Like I have said on the blog before, I believe that everyone deserves the right to a lifetime of unhappiness, so I always have and always will be a supporter of gay marriage. If you don’t like the idea of gay marriage, don’t get gay married! It’s as simple as that. Today, #lovewins
