Happy Birthday, Chubby!

Baker's Birthday came and went. I am so happy that he's 11, healthy and still full of personality. I see quite a few birthdays in his future! Not a day goes by where I don't think I'm the luckiest for having him. He's the best companion and not to mention the cutest mutt around!

For his party, I made up a carrot cake and a spicy pretzel mix for our guests to nibble on. We gave Baker a piece of cake which he housed in three bites- a true chow hound!

Happy Birthday, Chunk!

Pretty sure he hated that birthday hat...

Pretzels and almonds... Yummm

Spicy Pretzel Mix
1 cup raw almonds or any nut
2-3 cups pretzels
1 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil

Mix everything together in a bowl and spread onto some parchment paper. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, stirring every 10. It will be a hit!

The cake went too delicious and went fast to take a picture of it finished and individually sliced! It was that good!

Carrot cake sliced in half, ready to be frosted!
Batch of cream cheese frosting- delicious and very unhealthy!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
