It was an awesome day meeting people, meeting rescue groups, selling treats, meeting awesome dogs and their foster families, and eating great food from Ragin’ Cajun, and Cake Bar.

Please check out Cake Bar’s website if you are in the LA area, the owner Grace is wonderful and we were so happy to see that she was a vendor at this event as well!

Carrot Banana Sticks These now have flax seed meal instead of corn meal, which we all like even better.

We took all these to an event at Camp Run-A-Mutt! Julie (the awesome manager) set us up with a spot and a table to sell our treats/cookies! The pet parents reactions were very positive and the dogs loved them!!

And Sunday night after the event Lindsey came up with a new one!!

Chicky Crisps!
These came out so good once again we couldn’t stop eating them. We think they need to be a people treat too!

9- Fill with your favorite filling (using a star tip pastry bag)

Lindsey made the filling while I was making red velvet cupcakes so I don’t know what exactly it was, but I to know it was amazing!

Here’s what I know was in to but this isn’t a complete list-
Cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, vanilla, and probably a little cinnamon.
