Festivities...

Happy 3rd Birthday Chloemonster! Despite what you'd think by her expression, Chloe's birthday was FUN! Presents, birthday hats, balloons, and doggy birthday cake. Yes, I said cake. I baked my very first cake EVER for Chloe's birthday on Sunday. It was made from a recipe that I found online specifically for dogs. Perfect. She loved it.

I took some photos throughout the day. As a disclaimer, they have little to no photographic merit. They were merely to document the good time that we had celebrating our girl's day...

Everyone's favorite part of baking... Licking the beaters!

Looks yummy, no? I tried it. Not so much. Chloe seemed to enjoy her piece but I wouldn't recommend it for human consumption. Here's the recipe if you'd like to bake for your own pup:

Peanut Butter Carrot Cake

1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 cup shredded carrots, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/3 cup honey, 1 egg.

Mix all ingredients and then bake at 350 for 30 minutes in a greased 8in round cake pan. I actually doubled the recipe and used a 9in pan and it made a big honkin cake.

Frosting was made by blending cottage cheese and adding a small amount of peanut butter.

Here's a photo of her birthday loot... Lucky girl...

It's hard work being the birthday girl...

Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll have to make a birthday cake for our "kids" for their 13th birthday!
