Eddy Turns 4!

My sweet, sweet chihuahua turned four and it’s become tradition to make him cakes every year! Not just any cakes though, meaty dog cakes :)

In case you missed the last post about this, check out: Eddy’s 2nd Birthday! and Eddy’s Third Birthday!

I sort of make up the recipe every year as I go along… flour, eggs, chicken stock… some sort of protein like chicken or beef, carrots, beans… good stuff. I pulsed it all together in the food processor and poured it into a greased pan.
Yum? lol
I baked it at 350F for 45 minutes.
Then I made mashed potatoes with no butter or anything, just a little water. I tinted them with food coloring and used them as frosting.
End result:

With all the banner panels my friends made for him!

He was a tiny bit scared of the fire haha.
He really wanted some cake though.


Thanks so much to everyone who helped make Eddy’s birthday special! He was such a happy pup! Can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Very happy to announce this cake has been featured on musthavecute.com! I love being featured there! Spread on the cake joy!

    This is way too cute. Oh my goodness. Glad he enjoyed it! I will definitely have to consider doing something like this when I have a dog to love on. :)

    Love it! I’ve used mashed potatoes for faux-icing in the past (cake/pizza) and loved it!
