Dog Birthday Cake

Mummy made us birthday cakes this year! It was very yummy and I thought I would share the recipe so you can have some yumminess on your birthday too:

1⁄3 cup (50 g) flour 
1⁄3 cup (50 g) polenta (cornmeal), bran or rolled oats 
11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 
1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder 
500 g minced chicken 
30 ml honey 
1 large egg 
1⁄4 cup (60 g) live-culture plain yogurt 
4 teaspoons vegetable oil 
1 container (125 g) spreadable cream cheese 
Dog Biscuits, as needed to decorate cake

1 Preheat the oven to 180ÂșC (Gas 4). In a medium bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Make a well in the centre and add the chicken, honey, egg, yogurt and oil. Stir just until mixed. 

2 Pour into a greased cake tin and bake for 25 minutes or until the chicken is done and a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. 

3 Turn out onto a cake rack to cool. 

4 Ice the cake with cream cheese (thin cheese, if needed, with a little milk) and decorate with the dog biscuits. Refrigerate in a covered container for up to 1 week.
