Doggy Birthday Cake Recipe

As many of my Chowbabies know, yesterday was my beloved Golden Retriever's 6th Birthday. Nino turned 42 in dog years yesterday and we celebrated by gifting him with a homemade canine cake.
Here are some pics documenting Nino's feedback on the cake. I think he liked it! Recipe follows.

Peanut Butter Pooch Cake

1 cup white or whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)
Mix together flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a ring mold sprayed with a nonstick spray for 40 minutes. For frosting i mixed a couple of spoon fulls of peanut butter with a splash of milk and microwaved for 1 minute. Pour over the top of the cake.
