It's time for the other member of the family to turn seven, or is it one? Regardless, a birthday cake for the dog has become the order of the day and you are on the hook for it. Not to worry, just a couple of things to keep in mind; the age of your precious poodle is something to keep in mind, if your snappy schnauzer is approaching the senior citizen ranks he will need a cake with his digestive tract in mind, on the other hand if Bruno the boxer is hale and hearty the following recipes should be fine without modification.
The main ingredient derives from chicken based dog food, if it's from a can use it as is. Anyway twelve oz. chicken, four eggs, one cup flour, 1/2TSP baking powder, 1/2 cup oatmeal, ½1/2cup corn oil, here is where the older dog might have a problem, cut the corn oil back as much as you can for older dogs whilst still maintaining a cakey consistency, ½ cup grated parsley and ½ half cup grated carrots, for icing a 1/2 cup of cream cheese will be just right.
The oven needs to be 180c, finely chop the chicken and place in a blender with the eggs and corn oil, grate the carrot, and chop the parsley add the veggies to the mixture in the blender till mixed. Put the flour baking powder and oatmeal in a mixing bowl slowly stir in the blended mixture, pour into a cake greased cake pan and cook for sixty minutes. Viola a Birthday cake for the dog. Don't forget to top it off with a covering of cream cheese and some lovely candles. Serve sparingly, it's still a richer snack than he's used to.
