Prepare a layer cake as above. Then place one layer on a serving plate, spread yogurt over top and place the second cake on top. Tint remaining yogurt with blue food coloring and cover half of the cake, to look like the sea. Cover remaining cake with peanut butter and sprinkle with crumbled bacon or jerky, to look like the shore. Finally, decorate with organic dog treats or spirulina sprinkles(vitamins) on the sand and dolphin in the sea, with “Pupperoni” sticks as palm trees (candle-style!).Use play play dolphins but remember that they are not edibles.If you want to create mini waves, spread some white yogurt flecks into the blue ocean part of the cake.
