Doggy Birthday Cake: Do or Don't?

Thursday, March 22, 2018



Okay, our Jenny is turning one in April and I'm seriously considering to bake her a birthday doggy cake. Am I mad?! Last week, a friend of mine, sent me this link to Erin's recipe saying that I should totally do this for Jenny and I secretly agree with her!

The thing about me is that I show love with baked goods. So if I like you, I will probably show up at your doorstep with a box of homemade cookies or my go-to French lemon cake. If I don't, you know...

So despite knowing that baking a birthday cake for a pet might seem totally bonkers for some, I'm pretty sold on the idea, actually...

What do you think? Do or don't?

P.S: This one and that one sounds good too.
P.P.S: Plus, don't miss our beautiful earrings GIVEAWAY this week!
