One of my colleagues, Ross, came around bearing gifts this afternoon. He’d baked… yes, he actually baked… for his dog’s 7th birthday and he brought in some yummy baked cheesecake for the humans, and some pupcakes for everyone’s dogs!!

How cool is that?!

The pupcakes are banana cupcakes with honey creamcheese frosting based on a birthday cake recipe in the Modern Dog Magazine



It was quite funny watching them trying to eat them.  They didn’t guzzle them down at all.  First they tried biting them, and then decided otherwise.

Then they both licked off all the topping,

Then once they were clean, they chomped until they were done.

Not sure how much they really liked them actually, but they like any kind of treat!

And the recipe for those not bothered to click the link above 😉

Banana Birthday Pupcake
2 bananas
1 3/4 cups water
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Pour mixture into an 8-inch greased cake pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out dry.

In a mixer combine the following:
12 oz cream cheese (room temperature)

For carob frosting, add 3 tsp of carob powder to the frosting recipe.
