Doggie Birthday Party!!!

Today we are celebrating the 2-year and the new (official) adoption of our dogs, respectively. I made doggie and people food. The people food was sort of supposed to look like doggie food.

The Birthday Cake- Peanut Butter Icing and Carob Cream Cheese Icing (cooked potatoes/soy milk/natural peanut butter in food processor and Tofutti Non-Hydrogenated cream cheese/agave/carob powder using beaters, respectively). Do NOT use cocoa powder. It is not safe for dogs. Carob is a dog-safe roasted bean powder, like chocolate. The flavour isn't the same but they like it. It's different.
The Ice cream- frozen Silk yogurt in ice cube trays. Easy.

"Bones"- Chocolate Chip Cookies, some with macadamia nuts, cut with Dog Bone cookie cutter, but m
ost spread so you can't really tell the shape. Served in "dog" bowls, of course.

Mini-Cakes-Golden Cupcakes from VCTOTW. Got the papers at Michael's craft store.

If doing minis:
Cook only 10 minutes, let cool 5 minutes in tray, transfer to cooling rack.
Fill with a tea-spoon (one you use to eat with) so they are about 1/2 full. If they are too full they will spill over and stick to the sides, and not have cute rounded tops. Decorated with the Cream Cheese frosting (same book), some with the chocolate variation. Coconut extract instead of vanilla for the frosting. It actually isn't too coconut-ish, it just tastes really creamy.

"Meat" Lover's and Combo. "Meat" lovers has seitan (with fennel seeds added), Tofurkey Italian Sausage and Lightlife Pepperoni and some veggies. Combo has all sorts of things. Made with Follow Your Heart Cheese.

Whole table and the birthday boys!
