If you are lucky enough to have dogs in your life then you know how joyous it is to celebrate their birthday! Lincoln turned two-years-old last weekend and we had the best celebration! We started the day at the trail and he and Roxy spent two hours running, exploring the river, and enjoying all of the vitamin-d. After our trail adventures, we went to our favorite Starbucks and got Lincoln and Roxy a puppacchino. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a cup full of whipped cream.

Going through the drive through was the highlight of the day! The crew at Starbucks sang happy birthday to Lincoln and wrote happy birthday on his cup with paw prints. Yes, I totally saved the cup. He sang right along with them and so did Roxy. It was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen and I’m happy to report I got it all on film. Then, we came home and gave Lincoln his new dog toys and treats. I picked up a flamingo, tuff shark toy, and rawhide chews from Petco. Although, true to German Shepherd form, he takes the raw hide chews and strategically buries them all over the yard. It’s hilarious to watch because he’ll never put the raw hides in the same place. They have to be in different places. Boy dogs have a lot of similarities to each other and I find myself thinking of Harley often while I observe how Lincoln acts. One does not replace the other, only adds to it.

We wrapped the day by making a Lincoln a birthday cake! Dog-friendly birthday cakes are super easy and if you haven’t tried it, I highly suggest you do! I created this recipe from years ago when I made Roxy and Harley a birthday cake for their birthdays. That was before I was a recipe developer and I modified today’s version, but it’s basically the same one I came up with before. This cake is also human-grade friendly too!

This dog-friendly birthday cake is a lot of fun to make and have your pup join in the fun while baking it. All you need are a few simple ingredients and you will have a dog-friendly cake in less than an hour. I used gluten-free flour because Lincoln is on a grain-free diet and also used organic, sugar-free peanut butter and eggs for the base. I also added in two cups of shredded carrots and some vanilla extract (you could use carob extract as well). For the frosting I whipped together peanut butter and organic whole-milk yogurt, but you could sub in Greek yogurt as well. Making a dog-friendly cake is one of the easiest things to do and it’s a lot of fun!
