Cooper's Birthday cake recipe

 Friday is Cooper's 6th birthday and like any good doggie parent , I have to celebrate. Last year I made a cake and will make one this year too. Previous years I used store bought cakes like 3 dog  bakery ( out of business in my area now). They do look nicer especially his name but this is so much cheaper.

Peanut Butter Delight Dog Birthday Cake

1 cup flour ( I use brown rice flour as I want to avoid wheat as much as possible)
1tsp 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 flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into greased 8" round cake pan and bake at 350° for 30 minutes

Banana Cream Cheese Frosting

1 Ripe Banana
6 ounces non-fat cream cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mash the banana with a potato masher in a bowl. In another bowl incorporate the vanilla with the cream cheese. Fold in the banana with the cream

cheese mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Sprinkle with carob chips and enjoy!
