The Party – How to Throw the Best Doggie Birthday Ever

The lights dim as the cake, wreathed in candles, is ceremoniously carried in to a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday.” Eager eyes follow its progress and little Sparky holds his breath in anticipation. Liver cake is his favourite.

The Cake
The cornerstone of your event is the doggie birthday cake. This
recipe from Paws and Tails Bakery will have your guests sitting
up and begging for more. Or skip the fussing about in the kitchen
and order it directly from them at

Banana Birthday Pupcake
2 bananas
1 3/4 cups water
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 egg
2 Tbsp honey or molasses

Preheat oven to 350˚ F. In a bowl, combine bananas, water,
vanilla, egg, and honey or molasses and mix well. Add flour,
baking powder, and cinnamon and mix well. Pour mixture into
an 8-inch greased cake pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15
minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes
out dry.

In a mixer combine the following:
12 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp honey
For carob frosting, add 3 tsp of carob powder to the frosting

As most human guests likely won’t savour a slice, presentation
is paramount. A cute idea is to use Pup-Peroni sticks instead
of candles. And edible “candles” ensure no Poodle-do’s go
up in flame—very important! Or try decorating the cake with
crushed, dried banana chips and pipe a design on top of cake
using contrasting carob frosting, or spell out the birthday dog’s
name with little dog bone-shaped cookies. Aww.
