Dogtoberfest 2011- and BACONCAKE!

It's that time of year again... Halloween around the corner, Oktoberfest celebrations, doggie Halloween parties...
but what trumps them all?  

Dogtoberfest! This was our second Dogtoberfest, but it was actually either the 4th or 5th ever.
Every year (for at least the past 4 years, anyway), the dog owners in our
neighborhood get together for a picnic/barbecue and doggie get-together in our local park. 

We were blessed with very warm weather (maybe a little too warm for those of us
that have gotten used to temperatures never straying from the 55-65 degree range!),
sun, and plenty of neighborhood dogs & their owners out to enjoy the day.

Arguably the biggest draw to Dogtoberfest? The bacon cake!
Every year a fabulous dog-owning mom whips one up fresh for
the dogs, who absolutely love it.
This year's cake:

          Shaped like a cat, so the dogs can finally have their cake and eat it too ;-)

          It's a very orderly process, making sure the bacon cake is evenly distributed
and every dog gets his/her piece.

Time to line up!

Waiting.... waiting.....

At last, the dogs' moment of bacon cake bliss arrived ;-)

          Captain loves the bacon cake...

 But it was gone in 60 seconds. He quickly moved on to looking for leftovers:

Crumbs? Did somebody say crumbs?
Ah-ha! I knew there was more. I'll take some to go, please!

Another Dogtoberfest success!


  1. Oh I would if I had it! Our neighbor made it. But I think it has flour & oats & bacon grease, bacon (of course)... and some other stuff... she told me last year but I forget! I tend to stick to making non-meaty homemade treats.

  2. There's a little more about the cake ingredients from a post last year- not a recipe, but more info!

  3. Hi Y'all,

    Captain, did you get some to go?

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  4. How awesome that you have a dog party! Love the cake :)
