Whether your dog's birthday approaches, you want to include your pooch in a holiday celebration or you're throwing a canine party, baking dog-friendly desserts is always a fun idea. Lots of meat- and vegetable-based cakes, cupcakes and other baked goods are dog-friendly, and cottage cheese frosting is one of many easy, delicious, nutritious toppings. Opt for nonfat or low-fat cottage cheese to keep things on the healthier side. The flavor won't suffer. There's no need to add sugar to this icing; it's not good for the pooches and sweetness isn't required to please their palates.
Separate the whites and yolks of two eggs. If you don't have an egg-separating device, it's easy to do manually. Crack an egg and break it in half. Hold one half in each hand over your mixing bowl. Tilt the shells slightly and gently pour the yolk back and forth between the two halves. Allow the white to spill out bit by bit into the bowl below. Discard the yolks and shells when you're finished, and always wash your hands with warm water and soap after handling raw eggs.
Add 1 cup of cottage cheese to the two egg whites.
Whip the cottage cheese and egg whites with a blender at high speed.
Sprinkle all-purpose flour into the cottage cheese frosting as you whip it. Add a tablespoon at a time until the icing reaches the desired consistency. The more flour you use, the thicker the preparation.
Apply the cottage cheese frosting to your dog's cake or cupcakes with a rubber stirrer.
Top your doggy cake with some crumbled bacon bits for more flavor and a nicer presentation.
Add 2 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter to the mixing bowl before blending for a flavor variation dogs love.
