My friend Amanda's dog, Scout, had his 2nd birthday a few weeks ago. He had a gathering at the dog park, and of course, a doggie birthday cake. I say of course because there seems to be a plethora of such cakes popping up all over, and they're not yesterday's biscuit with a candle. You've never seen such fancy treats for dogs.
Scout's cake came from the ever-popular Three Dog Bakery, which makes things that any self-respecting adult could feasibly eat, but I started surfing around and found a bakery in Westchester, New York that makes cakes straight out of an elementary-school glycemic breakdown. They're fantastical! Plus, they're made of meat (your choice: lamb, chicken, turkey, white fish or duck) and laced with a cream-cheese frosting. MMMM-mmm. Cream-cheesy meat.
Anyway, I hear that Scout loved his peanut butter special, even if it didn't have plastic dogs marching all over the top of it. Fun was had by all.
Happy birthday, Scout!
