I cook the cake in a bread pan to get a rectangle that can be cut into a bone or other shape easily. I usually do a Google Image search for a cartoon bone, print and then lay the shape on the cake and cut around it with a knife. I then mix together some plain Greek yogurt and peanut butter for frosting and you can decorate with a Milkbone or cut a straw into a "candle".
I'll leave you with a peek at some of my favorite pictures of my rescue girl from this past year. Happy 2nd Birthday, Penny!
1 cup whole wheat or brown rice flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix flour and baking soda together. Incorporate rest of ingredients and mix well. Grease a bread pan with a small amount of oil. Add batter to pan in an even layer. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Let cool for 20 minutes and flip pan upside down to remove. Use stencil to cut out a bone or other shape if desired (discard the rest or serve to dog party guests). Mix frosting in small bowl. Frost and serve!
