Happy 4th Birthday Remington – Homemade Dog Cake and Dog Treats/Biscuits – Kansas City Pet Photography

Today I am celebrating my furry best friend’s birthday. Remington turns 4 today and what better way to celebrate than with his first homemade cake. I usually will pick up a cake from Three Dog Bakery, which are fabulous, but this year I thought I would try something a little different and even more cost effective. It smells delicious – and Remington was quite tempted this morning during his photo shoot. But as you can see, he is the perfect model and followed instructions to pose pretty by the cake – but not eat it just yet!  He will have the chance to dig in with his furry sister Abby tonight!

Remington, you are the inspiration behind my logo and my career. You are the best model and do anything I ask of you for the perfect shot. You are the first dog I had on my own and have taught me many things I would have missed out on – like learning the unconditional love a pet can bring. Happy 4th Birthday, my baby boy!

Doggie Birthday Cake

1 egg
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
1 cup shredded carrots (I placed in food processor for even quicker shredding)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray. Combine the egg, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla, and honey in a large bowl; blend well. Stir in the carrots and mix thoroughly. Sift together the flour and baking soda and fold into the carrot mixture. Don’t worry if the batter appears really thick – the recipe doesn’t call for water or any liquid, but it turns out great. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes. I then used a combination of honey and peanut butter to frost the cake and decorated with a candle and bone-shaped treats.

And here is a fun and easy recipe for homemade dog treats that I made for Remington’s buddies at daycare.

Peanut Butter and Honey Homemade Dog Treats

1 1/2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix until the dough forms and then shape into small balls and place on cookie sheet.  Bake for about 10 minutes, or until treats are firm to the touch.
