Xander's Birthday Cake





Behold...the ultimate doggy Birthday cake, made up under the creative mind of your's truly ;) .


For those of you wondering, here's how I made it :P .


First find a little kettle with a removable handle (use a screw driver ;) ). This will be the cake pan. Spray with non-stick cooking spray thusly (why thats a cool word now isnt it? I've always wanted to use it too...).


As for ingredients...



3 cups of Iams Large Breed Dog Food, ground up fine with a decent meat grinder ;)

3 large eggs

3 heaping tablespoons of whole wheat flour (doggies cant have that All Purpose crap so dont try it!)

8 ounces of butter or margarine (about half of a little tub), plus 1 tablespoon to be mixed in with the peanut butter as it melts

3/4 cup of peanut butter, melted down with 1 tablespoon of butter

1/2-3/4 cup of milk



A lot of peanut butter ;)


Writing and Decor

2 tablespoons of peanut butter

A little food coloring

2 doggy treats


Combine dog food, eggs and softened butter. Melt peanut butter down in a separate kettle and add 1 tablespoon of butter to it. After it has a creamy consistancy, stir in whole wheat flour until mostly integrated. In a large bowl, combine dog food mixture and peanut butter mixture. Based on dryness of cake, add enough milk to result in an almost cake-batter consistancy. Spoon 1/3 of the mixture into the sprayed kettle and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cake gives a little with a fork and said fork comes out clean. Bake the remaining 2 layers as did the first one, cooling each one after coming out of the oven. Once all three layers are baked, put the 2nd-best layer down first to be the foundation. Frost the top of it with a decent layer of peanut butter. Place the cruddiest looking layer in the middle and frost that one the same way. Then place the best looking layer on top, frost the top, then frost the entirety of the side of the cake. Then to write on the cake, take a little thing off of your standard Bic pen that you can blow air through, slightly snip off a corner of a baggy and stick the pen tip in the baggy and voila! a homeade pastry bag! Then, add a few spoonfuls of peanut butter and about 10 drops of (I used blue) food coloring and mix it up by squishing the peanut butter around inside the baggy, being careful not to squirt any out the tip. When ready to write, chances are that the peanut butter at the very beginning didnt get integrated with the food dye, so just squirt out a little on a plate until you see a difference in color. Write your canine-buddy a birthday greeting, garnish with the treats, and you're done!! :D


Yeah I've pretty much lost it but I love that dog! :wub:

Xander is lucky to have you! You pay attention to him, walk him and play with him. :great:


Way too many people just put their dogs in the back yard and don't give them enough attention. Then when they act up, they say stupid dog when it's really a stupid owner. :thumbdown:

Well I like watching the show Good Eats on Food Network and thanks to it have learned a great deal of science behind food and just worked from that. I wanted the dog food to be the basis of it, and had I just added water, it would have just baked back into a sheet of dog food, so to give it moisture and softness in the final product, I added the eggs, butter and milk and for some structure in the cake, it needs flour, and dogs cant have All Purpose so I used whole wheat. The peanut butter in the cake was for a little more flavor. Hehe, I should post this in some dog forum or something....
