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:

Perfect.

With all the banner panels my friends made for him!

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!

Dog Birthdays

Listen, dogs are people too. Er… well, that is to say, they’re part of the family. And since I’m evidently reproductively challenged, my dog is like my child. And that child is turning 4 on the 15th of July! *sniffle* They grow up SO FAST! Well, my tiny man is super spoiled and everyone loves him… so this is your chance to share the love!

Please download this banner template in the large size from my flickr and design your own panel! Then email it to me at plasticshakeupsnow@gmail.com and I will download and print off all the panels made! Then I will create a banner for Eddy’s party and you’ll all get to be a part of it!

Have fun with it! Use photos or ms paint, use photoshop or if you can figure out how to print it out, draw on it and scan it back in and make it the same size again, well more power to you. haha. Make Eddy’s birthday fun!

Here’s a look at his past two birthdays!

When little man turned 3 last year I made him this cake!
