Doggy’s Birthday Party – Happy 12th Birthday, Lisa!

DSC_3606The day I’ve been looking forward to, for quite a while, has finally arrived:

Lisa’s Birthday Party!!!

Everything¬†started with making the birthday cake, of course. I didn’t had to hide, because she had no idea it’s for her. I guess this is the advantage of planning a birthday party for the furry kid ūüôā

Choosing a¬†cake was very hard, but I’ve decided to go for her favorites (outside the meat department): carrots, bananas, peanut butter and the never-missing treats.

Birthday Cake Recipe 

Sponge Ingredients (I used the blender to mix them) :

  • half a large banana
  • 1 egg
  • 5 gr baking powder
  • honey (optional)


  • peanut butter
  • apple sauce
  • 1 boiled carrot
  • small size doggy treats

making the cake

The cake had 4 tiers, the size of a small coffee plate, all¬†cooked in a no-stick frying pan. For the filling, I’ve used the¬†boiled carrot, cut into thin slices, and the peanut butter / apple sauce, as glazing.

I’ve used the remainder carrot to write her name on the top tier, being very grateful her name isn’t Marmaduke or Scooby Doo, or something even longer.

Next on the list, bringing the cake to the birthday girl. Blowing out the candles Рthank you Violeta for your help Рand making a wish, followed shortly by her favorite part: eating the yummy cake, what else?


My wish for her was to live for many many years and be as healthy as a dog can be.


Opening the birthday gift box – exciting!

Last, but not least, giving the birthday cuddles and kisses.

Happy Birthday to our sweet Lisa, and to many more to come! xo
