Smile Birthday cake okay?

Dakota has his Birthday this month and me being a crazy mom, wants to have a birthday party for him with his puppy friends. I was trying to come up with a cake idea and would like to keep with the cake theme....meaning not hamburger and potatoes and things. So I had some ideas, but wanted input on the practicality and potential fattening of my dog.


Icing:
Peanut Butter plain
Yogurt plain or cream cheese plain or both

Blended together....not sure of what proportions

Cake:
Know what flavors sound good (for a dog) but not sure how to execute such cake recipe for dog.

-Karob and peanut butter
-Pumpkin
-Sweet potato and Salmon


Any ideas?

I did a quick google and landed on this site: Free Dog Cake Recipes; Birthday Cake Fondants For Dogs

Dogs need birthday parties too! I usually make the carrot and peanut butter cake from the link that Trina posted. I used to make a cake, but now I make cupcakes instead. The cottage cheese color starts to change in the fridge after a day. So, I just put a little frosting on the cupcakes before I serve them to the dogs. So, they get to celebrate all week. Here is Molly's cake from last year:

What a beautiful cake, Elmo's Mom!

Good to know that at least one of those recipes from that site is worthwhile as I was thinking of trying one out for Max's birthday this month.

I've also used the peanut butter carrot cake only instead of carrots I used apples. I tried a piece myself and it was actually pretty good! Lol! I iced it with a thin layer of PB.

Although I dont have any receipes for a birthday cake I thought it was cute that your shepherds name is also Dakota (she's beautiful) and I also plan on having a little birthday party for my Dakota next month, she'll be 1 year (:
