When it comes to dessert, us pups are often forgotten. So I thought I'd share with you the recipes for some of my favourite sweet treats, so we canine companions are not left out. 
 
We have a great idea for parties and birthdays, a healthy carrot cake with frosting. I think this one might be my favourite recipe, as I just love the frosting!
 
First up, you'll need to get your human to help you gather the following ingredients:
 
- 65g of rice flour (or any flour your dog can digest)
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 2 medium carrots (grated)
- 3 tablespoons of honey
- 118ml of olive oil
- 115g of cream cheese
- 2 additional tablespoons of honey for the frosting
 
Then once you've measured everything out, pop on your chef’s hat and follow the method below...
 
Step one: In a big bowl, combine the eggs, oil and honey and thoroughly mix.
 
Step two:  To the mix add flour and the baking soda to make a smooth but thick mixture.
 
Step three: Add the grated carrots gradually until combined together well.
 
Step four: Place the mixture into cupcake cases within a muffin tin, so they keep their shape. Cook for about 15-20 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius till a little golden on top.
 
Step five: Once cooked, place on a cooling rack.
 
Step six: For the frosting, pop your cream cheese (you can use cottage cheese or yoghurt if you prefer) and honey in a bowl and whip with a hand whisk.
 
Step seven: Once the cupcakes have cooled, decorate with the frosting, either with a spatula or a piping bag.
 
Step eight: Invite your friends round for a party!
