Anyway, I went online and googled "dog birthday cake recipes" and clicked on the very first link, which unsurprisingly is called "Dog Birthday Cake Recipes."
Here's the recipe if you'd like to give it a try...Sage was VERY interested the entire time I was baking!
I thought green frosting would be appropriate. (If you're new to our blog, you can read why I chose the color green, here.)
They actually smelled pretty good coming out of the oven!
I decided to make it a two layer cake because what dog doesn't deserve a two layer birthday cake?! (and one of the mini loafs was significantly smaller than the other one.) However, as you can see, I ran out of icing...but I think I played it off well!
I thought it turned out pretty cute!
Obviously I couldn't let Sage have all the fun, so I made some human-friendly cupcakes with cream cheese icing & cute dog bone sprinkles!
Sage reluctantly waited as I took this picture...I'm pretty sure she was drooling!
I let her have one little lick for the picture and then snatched it up before she could take a bite! My husband wanted to be a part of the party and he didn't get home until 6.
So this is Sage actually eating her birthday cake, which she devoured almost immediately! (NOTE: In order to avoid tummy aches, Sage was only allowed to have a little slice...)
Apart from a little oven burn on my wrist, we celebrated Sage's birthday with a bang! Next year we'll have some friends over!
Happy birthday Sagey! Let's hope your next year of life will be less eventful...
