Happy Birthday Milo!

Milo at about 1 week old

Our teeny tiny puppy turns 1 today! Of course such a big milestone couldn't pass by without a bit of a celebration!

We made a special puppy friendly birthday cake just for Milo. You can find the recipes at the Dog Treat Recipe Exchange. We made the Peanut Butter Delight Cake with the Cinnamon frosting.

Peanut Butter Delight Cake
From the Dog Treat Recipe Exchange

1 cup white or whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1 egg


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)

Mix together flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a ring mold sprayed with a nonstick spray for 40 minutes.

Cinnamon Frosting
From the Dog Treat Recipe Exchange

Combine the following ingredients and blend thoroughly:
12 ounces nonfat cream cheese (room temperature)
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp honey

A new toy for the birthday puppy!

New toy destroyed an hour later, for such a little guy he is really destructive!
