  3. Divide the dough into 5 equal pieces.
  4. Add two pieces of dough into a single ball and, place onto lower center of baking sheet.
  5. Round the remaining 3 pieces of dough and then add to the tray, placing each above the original piece in a row touching each other and the original piece.  These will create the upper three pads of the paw print.

  11. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds and then remove and continue to stir until carob is uniformly melted.
  12. Scoop a small amount of carob onto the center each of the three outer parts of the paw print and, using spoon, flatten into small circles.
  13. Snip the corner tip of the plastic bag and add remaining melted carob into bag.
  14. By squeezing carob out of the snipped corner, write your Birthday message onto the body of the cake.
  15. Refrigerate up to one week.
