Peanut Butter Banana Pup-Cake

Today is our Little Layla’s 2nd birthday! I remember hearing from the breeder two years ago today that the puppies had been born and that we were first on the list for a female. We got lucky because Layla was the only girl in the liter! It is hard to remember our life before Layla. She is the sweetest, most loving dog with boundless energy and endless kisses to give. 

I made this Peanut Butter Banana Pup-Cake to celebrate her birthday over the weekend. It a peanut butter banana cake topped with a creamy peanut butter frosting and decorated with an assortment of Milk-Bone biscuits. 

This cake is doggy heaven. TREATS & PEANUT BUTTER?! In Layla’s eyes nothing could be better! Well, maybe bacon, she does love bacon… but, luckily she’s not too picky about special treats and seemed pretty content with this years creation ๐Ÿ™‚ (you can check out her 1st birthday recap here)

They say that when a puppy turns 2 they are officially a dog and out of the puppy phase. That is 100% not true with Layla. The Vizsla breed is one of a kind in terms of their extremely high energy levels that keeps them fully charged with puppy energy which, we have heard, may never fade! With that, sometimes hard to control, energy comes more love and companionship than we could have ever imagined. 

Layla was not a fan of her party hat at first, but once she dug into that cake all of her hat woes were forgotten. She embraced the hat and entered full party mode! 

True love is sharing your birthday cake with your boyfriend ๐Ÿ™‚ 

First they devoured the Milk-Bones, then licked off all the frosting and finally went to town on the cake. We probably should not have allowed them to eat the whole cake in one sitting… but you only turn 2 once right?! 

Happy Birthday Sweet Little Layla! Here’s to another year full of adventures, snuggles and treats ๐Ÿ™‚
