Happy Birthday Sisci Godzilla!

Sisci Godzilla is one year old today! Look what a good puppy she is! I had to hold Brisbane still for his first birthday picture.

The Dog Biscuit Cake

I finally got around to trying out the dog treat maker my mother gave me last summer. It bakes four bones at a time, in about ten minutes. It's basically a dog-biscuit-waffle maker, and mine really, really came out waffley.

These are made with tapioca flour, beef-and-vegetable baby food, canned parmesan cheese, and plain yogurt. They came out kind of cheesy with a slightly crunchy outside and chewy inside. My friend Liz who hangs around on my couch, brings the dogs french fries, and suggests we taste dog treats, tried a couple and found them quite tasty. She likes to bite fingers and says these have a similarly satisfying feel. Make of that what you will.

After baking, the bones cooled down in about 20 minutes and I was able to frost them. This is just plain whipped cream cheese with a few drops of food coloring. I was going to add sprinkles but someone has eaten all my dessert-decorating supplies. I think the resulting tower of bones came out pretty cute, and the dogs really loved them. Even Ru ate a whole one.
