Doggie Birthday Beef Cake
Make something special to celebrate your pup's birthday!
1 pound ground beef
1⁄2 cup peas & carrots fresh or frozen
peas & carrots extra for decorating (optional)
1 medium sweet potato peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine ground beef, egg, peas and carrots in a large bowl. Form into patties and distribute evenly into mini pans. Place pans on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven.
While baking patties, bring water to a boil in a large pot to boil sweet potatoes. Boil sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, drain and allow to cool. Mash sweet potatoes with a potato masher or fork.
Allow both the beef patties and sweet potatoes to cool completely before assembling the cake.
Sweet potatoes can be spread on to the beef cake with a knife or small spatula. If you would like to get fancy, put mashed sweet potatoes into an icing bag with a decorative tip and pipe as you would a regular cake.
