Abba Zaba Cheesecake

I love creating unique cakes for my dog Abba.

From a giant 1 foot cupcake with perfect-piped frosting to a pulled pork meringue pie. Abba (pictured below) is now technically a senior (who still acts like a puppy) so this dog-friendly cheesecake is enriched with anti-inflammatory extras. Make sure you have Honest Kitchen cookies on hand for this super tasty special treat your dog will go wild for.
