Doggie Safe Birthday Cake Recipe 

When your fur baby is turning one, and you want to celebrate, the cake can be a tough part. I have a 3 pound, sweet as can be, little girl chihuahua, Olive. When researching ideas for her first birthday photo session I knew the cake had to be puppy safe. When she was young she suffered terribly from acid reflux so it was even more important that the ingredients would be agreeable with her special diet. 

Main ingredients: 

Recipe and cooking directions.

Mix the egg, oil, and PB in a bowl. Mix well. Sift flour and baking soda directly into wet mixture. 

Mix flour, baking soda mixture with wet ingredients while adding shredded carrots.

Fold in carrots. I didn't use the full cup. It's your choice how much to add. 

Press mixture into 3 - 4 inch cake pans.

Cook for 30 minutes on 350 degrees. 

Let them cool while you work on the "icing."

I made mashed potatoes for the icing! I used 4 large potatoes. Added 2-3 tbs butter and tiny TINY bit of milk. Add food coloring, if desired! A little goes along way. I set aside 3/4 cup of white mash potatoes. After using my hands to mold the pink MP around the cake I worked with a knife to sculpt the shape. MP is very forgiving. Have fun with it! I used a normal piping bag and frosting tip for the white MP at the bottom. The tiny flowers are sugar cake decoration from Michael's!   

And there it is! So go enjoy this 100% dog & human friendly cake!
