Heavenly Hound Cake

 

 

This dog cake recipe is wonderfully healthy for your loyal familiar and infused with all of your loving, caring, and appreciative energies. The love and appreciation is what makes this cake so heavenly for your familiar. Love goes a long way in healing an animal, as it’s their biggest source of joy and healing positive energies. Even if they’re not sick, like us dogs undergo daily stress that requires daily healing. Every familiar deserves all the extra love it can get for all of their unseen help. If you’re having trouble connecting with your familiar, check out my article on familiars and crystal magic. It explains my process of understanding and connecting with my familiars and our rough start here.

I had family issues and missed my loving familiar’s birthday. Idun takes such good care of me and is so obedient she deserves to be celebrated. So to make up for it we took her to the river and made her a birthday cake the other day. I say cake, I make cupcakes so I can share those with the other animals around as my cats will get very moody if we don’t share and there are always other dogs around.

Familiars help us in so many ways on a daily basis. They help with our mental and emotional well being, often help with energy work, and love us unconditionally. They deserve our appreciation and celebration of all they do for us. My aforementioned lab has helped me overcome a lot of life barriers as well as some magical ones by giving me her loving and healing energies.

For this love infused doggie cake we’re going to use pumpkin and brown rice flour for our base. I prefer to use a more protein based flour such as chickpea or mung but those can be hard to find or expensive in flour form so I use brown rice as a substitute. Pumpkin is full of potassium, an electrolyte which helps the electrical charges in the muscles, nerves, and heart. The magical properties of pumpkin are love, prosperity, and protection. Your familiar deserves all of the love and protection you can give them to thank them for their help. We are their soul purpose of living and they have dedicated their lives to our health and happiness.

For centuries humans as a whole have held the apple to high esteem. Christianity with the garden of Eden, Pagans using the seeds as a pentacle for spells, and for the Norse it represented the goddess Idun who is my familiar’s namesake. Representing love, fertility, and beauty apples, in this case applesauce, are an ingredient to aid your familiar in every way it needs.

Peanuts carry the energies of manifestation and stability. The latter is very important for the mental and emotional well being of any familiar be it cat, dog, hedgehog, or frog. Your familiar aids you in manifesting your energies in their fullest potential so giving them apples for manifestation will help them help you.

Baking soda and coconut oil have energies of protection and banishing negative energy. In their work to aid and protect us our familiars undergo various battles unbeknownst to us be it keeping energies of ill intent from us or helping clear our own negative energies from work or school. Baking soda and coconut oil will help them from the buildup they experience from this process.

Disclaimer: please do not douse your familiar with baking soda, they will hate it and you have to clean it.

The final ingredient for this Heavenly Hound Cake is Greek yogurt. As a probiotic, yogurt is very nutritious for a dog’s overall health. Yogurt also has high amounts of calcium and protein for your familiar’s healthy bones. Because I was sharing with a pup that had allergy I I not make the icing for this batch.

The stones that can be used for this recipe are quartz and peridot For awareness and balance. Rose quartz can be used for love and healing. Kyanite can help your familiar realign and balance after all the help they give you.

I hope your familiar enjoys this cake and being celebrated, mine always do and trust me they know they deserve it. Blessed be.
