I cannot believe that our little pup is already 6 years old! We have a photo frame with her sweet face in our living room and on the frame it says “who rescued who”. It’s so true, 5 years ago I adopted her from a local shelter and I’m 100% sure she saved me too. After adopting her my life took a wonderful turn; I met and fell in love with my fiancé, I graduated from college, started my career, and I even got a new phone number all in the same year! This year for her birthday, we still made her a special cake to celebrate and had a small party with us and both our parents.
I’ve included the recipe for this meat cake below. Do you have any special traditions for your dog on their birthday? Comment below!
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 1 lb. organic beef
- ½ cup organic frozen peas
- ¼ cup organic rolled oats
- ¼ cup shredded cheese
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Peel and chop the sweet potatoes, place into a medium saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until sweet potato is soft; about 20 minutes.
While the sweet potatoes are boiling, combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
Divide into 3 patties and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until meat is well done.
When the sweet potatoes are soft, transfer to an electric mixer with the whisk attachment and mix until smooth.
Allow both the meat and the sweet potato “frosting” to cool slightly before assembling.
On a plate, place one meat patty then spread a small layer of sweet potato puree. Repeat with the remaining two patties. Then spread the sweet potato puree on the sides and top of the cake similar to frosting a cake.
