Yesterday was my kitchen helper Lexi’s 4th birthday, so I made a cake for her I posted this on my personal Instagram story and received a lot of requests for the recipe (obviously there are other crazy dog parents like me) This cake is human-friendly too l, but it’s not quite as sweet as regular cake
⚠️ I would also like to say, for dog parents who have their dogs on grain-free diets (meaning no wheat, oats, rice, etc) please beware! There have been many links between grain-free diets and risk of heart disease in dogs
