Healthy Doggie Birthday Cake

The 27th was my dog Junior's 1st birthday!!  Although he is spoiled year round, I thought it would be fun to make him a homemade doggie birthday cake!  I searched online for a recipe with bananas (his favorite fruit) but most of them included butter. I decided to substitute applesauce for the butter and omitted the nuts.  For the icing, I just used non-fat greek yogurt and shredded carrots (for decoration).

Happy Birthday Junie!
