So mum is a self professed Crazy Dog Mum so she was pretty excited about making me my very own Pup Cake out of ice (since it’s the last week of summer here in Australia!) for my Gotcha Day / Birthday tomorrow!! Inspired by several other awesome blogs including one from another dog mum who’s puppy is also named Karma!!
Mum says her first attempt probably didn’t turn out quite as pretty as she wanted it to, but it was YUMMY and ice cold so that’s all that really mattered to me! She looks forward to MANY more attempts over the years 🙂
Here’s a little insight into the making of my ice block cake!!! ❤ Karma
First mum got lots of my favourite healthy snacks – apples, carrots and sweet potato!
Using a small heart cookie cutter she made me lotsa heart shaped love snacks with the apples n yams…. then she made beautiful little flowers out of carrots! NOM NOM!
She used a measuring container to make my cake – just filling it with the smallest bit of water and adding the first layer and letting it freeze for a couple hours!
Full disclosure – mum tried cooking beets for the first time ever cause she wanted to use the beetroot juice to color my hearts…. it was a great idea in concept, but it didn’t quite color as much as she would have liked, and then just made the ice cake pink…. I liked that but mum wasn’t as impressed…

Mum attached the carrot flowers to the sides using all natural peanut butter (yay!) and even put in some doggy bones! Another layer of water and in the freezer it went!
The final bottom layer is just too delicious (and the one I was the most keen to sink my pup teeth into!) It was natural oats mixed with mashed up banana, puree apple, peanut butter AND natural yogurt! Back in the freezer for the final time…. Can you say OH MY DOG?!?!?
Mum will post pix of me with my yummy cake (and an obscene amount of gotcha day / birthday pix of me of course!) tomorrow!!! YIPPEE!!!!
