Canine Cake

Happy Birthday to Caesar! My little boy turned 2 years old today. It seems just like yesterday that we picked him up from a farm in Maine.I baked him a Canine Cake this morning for his little celebration. The recipe is from Hannah's book, My Sweet Vegan, and it was fast and easy. We are not vegan, but I enjoy baking all sorts of baked goods, so DH got it for me as one of my Christmas gifts last year. I baked it in a mini Tulip-shaped silicone pan to fancy it up, but I don't think he cared. :-)Look at his self control! DH taught both the boys "the wait" command when they were puppies.I cut it in half, so that Napoleon can have a piece of cake, too. I tasted a little bit of it and it's not bad. It's like a peanut butter carrot cake.The boys ate cake for lunch and will be getting steak for dinner. Every year, I always grill up a steak for them on their birthdays. Since you can't give it to one without giving it to the other, they get to eat it twice a year. Lucky dogs!

I want to play in a field with Caesar, and then eat some cake (human for me, doggie-version for him). Oh so sweet!
