Doggie Birthday Cake

Yep, you read that right!  Today our dog, Rory, turns a sprightly 8 years old, and I thought I would finally give her a proper birthday cake to celebrate.  And a little party with her toys, naturally :)

(We're forever putting things on Rory's head and snapping photos.  It's to the point now where she freezes her poses when she sees me put the camera to my face.  It's a little cruel, but totally awesome at the same time.  If you want to see more of Rory with things on her head, go here, here, here, here, or a video here!)

This little cake recipe is a cinch to mix up, and it actually doesn't taste half bad.  (Of course, I sampled it!)  It's basically a regular cake recipe with not enough sugar.  Rory wasn't sure what to do with it at first, because it was such a big treat and full of amazing smells.  But once she started licking off the peanut butter frosting, she didn't stop until we took half the cake to save for tomorrow.  She loved it!

Dogs with peanut butter tongues will never, ever not be funny to me!


  1. I really, really like how you put party hats onto her various stuffed animal friends for her birthday cake party.

    1. I have to confess - the party friends was all Bo's idea. But the hats were mine :)


I'll trade ya a comment for a smile!
