Of course, there would be no cake without Jimmy's help, so he had to pose with it...
It would have been prettier if I had removed it from the box, but I erred on the side of caution. 1) to save it from becoming covered in dog hair and 2) to act as somewhat of a barrier from Jimmy's drooling tongue!
Of course I couldn't put it out for people to eat with a dog-bite sized chunk missing, so before it was all gone, I saved a slice to bring home.
So here it is!
Proof that you can indeed have your cake and eat it, too!
This isn't the photograph I had in my mind's eye, but I made three or four tries and each time the bite disappeared so quickly, I could barely snap a picture. I couldn't keep feeding him more and more sugar, so I cut my losses and this was the best of the lot!
Oh, and in case you are wondering, that dark blue icing, once digested, turns a dog's poop bright kelly green! I should have taken a picture of that, too! LOL! Well....maybe not.
Jimmy's breeder, Anne, and her husband drove over three hours (one way!) just to join in the celebration. Look at the lovely flowers they brought me.....
Anne also hand-made me an adorable garden flag featuring Jimmy taking a jump. I put it out as soon as I got home and don't have a picture yet. Thanks, Anne, I love it!
