5 on the 1st

Daisy's buddy, Dixie, turned 5 today!!  Daisy and I made a red velvet cake for her birthday. 
They had a delicious time woofing it down. 

Dixie is from the south, so we thought red velvet would be perfect. It's not a true red velvet cake (chocolate). This was  a doggie cake mix made with rice flour and beet juice. It made my kitchen smell pretty special. Daisy was so happy to smell the air while it was baking. 

For my class today, I made a tray of "brown e's". 
Everyone gobbled them up!


  1. OMD! She has a two-headed shadow!
