Fun cake for a dog's birthday
The-BEST-Dog-Birthday-Cake-for-your-Fur |

I love my dogs more than anything. I’m seriously obsessed. I’d do anything to make them happy, including creating a fun dog cake recipe for my fur baby’s birthday!

My family has always celebrated our dogs birthdays…. And, by celebrate, I mean go ALL out. Please see the following photo for an example. 

Puppy Party with the Best Dog Birthday Cake |

For years, I wanted to make a relatively healthy birthday cake for my dogs. My parents’ would insist on store-bought, human cakes. I never felt right feeding them all that sugar. This year, I FINALLY created a recipe from scratch. I included the birthday girl’s favorite things (CHEESE, bacon, and peanut butter).

It was a HUGE hit with both of my dogs. They truly could not get enough!

Creating the recipe from scratch was not easy. I definitely had to make adjustments as I went.

I wanted to layer the cake with peanut butter in between. At first, I didn’t have enough batter to fill the two small pans. I played around with the recipe to increase the amount while still maintaining the right consistency, combination, and taste.

Side note: Have you ever tried baby food?!?! I tasted the vegetable beef baby food… Oh my, it was TERRIBLE. I immediately felt bad for human babies everywhere. It works IN the cake though. No worries. 

More importantly, the dogs LOVED it.

The cake can be consumed by humans too. I tried it… it wasn’t bad. It’s more suited for our furry friends though! 

Pup Cake Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 5 eggs
  • 1.5 cups of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp of honey
  • 4 oz Vegetable beef baby food (I used this one.)
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 4 oz. Cream cheese
  • Peanut Butter as needed
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • Mini Milkbones (for sprinkles!)

Pup Cake Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the eggs, oil, honey, and baby food. Stir well. 
  4. Crumble 2 slices of bacon. Add and mix.
  5. Pour mixture into desired sized pans. (I used two 8.5 x 6 x 1.5 inch pans.) 
  6. Bake for about 20-25 minutes (or until done).
  7. Combine cream cheese and peanut in a bowl for frosting. I kept adding peanut butter to the 4 ounces of cream cheese until it was thick enough to spread without dripping. 
  8. After the cakes have cooled, spread peanut butter on top of one cake. 
  9. Layer the other cake on top. 
  10. Top with the peanut butter and cream cheese mixture.
  11. Sprinkle shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and mini milk bones. 
  12. Add candles and sing to your pup! 
  13. Be LOVED even more. (Is that even possible?!)
