#CAKE FOR DOGS – DOGGY CAKE GOOD ENOUGH FOR HUMANS

Good Friday Morning !

So on the 29th of July 2014 was my Neapolitan Mastiff Nina’s first birthday and I just had to organise her a cake and prezzies.

Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS: CAKE

1 Large apple or two smaller ones
1,5 cups rice flour/gluten-free
1/4 cup corn flake crumbs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda

1/2 cup plain full cream yogurt
1/4 oil
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
3 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

INGREDIENTS: FROSTING

1 tub low-fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons plain full cream yogurt
2-3 tablespoons rice flour/almond flour

METHOD: CAKE

Preheat oven to 200 deg C
Core apple then grate it, set aside.
Sieve the dry ingredients in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients, add the cheese and apple.
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Fold together and pour into prepared small cake tin or cupcake tin.
Bake for about 30 min until golden brown.

METHOD: FROSTING

Mix all the ingredients together until it’s a smooth consistency.
I added edible colour and glitter. (optional)
I used a zip lock bag to do the piping. Just spoon the frosting into the bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner and let the decorating begin.

So give it a try! Nina also received some gifts and of course shared her cake with Donatella! Let me know what you think and comment below! Also remember that a healthy dog diet should consist of good quality pellets with a higher percentage of protein. Cooking food or left overs is not good for your pet. Dogs can’t digest cooked bones, it’s not good for them. This cake is a treat that my dogs will be getting on their birthdays. Just as we have treats on special occasions. Some of us more than most. lol.

Remember that your pets should be treated with respect and love, but as the Dog whisperer puts it… remember that: first it’s an animal, then a species, then breed, then a pet.

Lots of Blessings

Muchluv, Sandylashxx

Animal Nursery Editorial Controversy

Hi Poutlings

upton3

Here are some photos from a Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot featuring Kate Upton and some exotic fur babies. There is a lot of controversy, of course, as there always is with Miss Upton. However, before I touch on that, please can I confess – I love Kate’s styling in these photos. It’s very retro, but it’s incredibly flattering. I love the fact that no boobs are pushed on you when looking at these images, and I lovelovelove the fact that Bazaar has some hair and makeup people who weren’t hypnotised by her boobies and actually put some great effort in to make her look great!

The controversy? The editorial is aptly named “The Animal Nursery” and the theme is that Kate, is not only a largely talented breasted model, acting as a nurse to baby animals, and she poses winningly while holding up various kinds of animals.

The shoot was styled by Carine Roitfeld and it will appear in all 26 international editions of the magazine. This is hardly the first time a major fashion magazine appears tone deaf about how fashion editorials are accessorised. Vogue recently went under fire by using actual babies as accessories for fashion shoots, and just a couple of months ago, Vogue did an absolutely terrible shoot in the areas of New York which were drastically affected by Hurricane Sandy. So, where does “using endangered baby animals”” fall on the list of editorial disasters?

Fashionista reached out to Harper’s Bazaar, but no one at the magazine would issue any statements. Fashionista also reached out to Zoological Wildlife Foundation, which apparently provided the animals for the shoot, and they wouldn’t go on record either. But, as always PETA did, FYI – I am not a fan of PETA however their statement was interesting…

“The gibbon featured in the photographs is an infant and should be with his mother at all times. Besides the emotional trauma that he has undoubtedly suffered as a result of the separation, his delicate immune system is still developing, and he is susceptible to illness that humans carry. All the animals in the photographs are endangered and should be protected rather than being treated like props.”

Now, PETA, are melodramatic all the time, however – if all of what they are saying is true, (I’m not claiming to know because I am not a vet), then the gibbon should most definitely be with its mother. Damn. As for the little tiger… I think he is adorable. I wish he would follow me home and he could be my tiger for life. I bet he has super sharp kitten claws though… and to honest, that is what bothers me most about this shoot – that they had all those babies together on the set. What if the baby tiger thought the gibbon was a playmate and those kitten claws come out and then…? Disaster.

Anyway, what are your thoughts?
