The black and white Dog, Wilson, her boyfriend, and the brown one, Franky, her other friend in the neighborhood. If it is too hot to bake try some Frozen Homemade Dog Treats & Dog Cakes


Homemade Dog Birthday Cakes–Peanut Butter and Carrot Dog Cake


So what to feed these sweet pups without getting them sick. I thought about buying Frosty Paws as a nice cool treat, but I really could not blog about them and felt a little lazy. I had made dog biscuits before that were well received too. A friend of mine had tried this recipe so I thought I would give it a whirl.

The recipe suggests a large cake but I made large cupcake sizes since I know they would not share nicely.

I then decided to frost them using some other fun flavors that my dog loves. Really she is not fussy she got into a bag of marshmallows in the back of my car this am….

I mixed some natural peanut butter, and non-fat Greek yogurt and a splash of honey for the frosting.

I tasted the cooked cake and it was pretty dry. It is edible to us humans just don’t think you would enjoy it. Smelled like a yummy carrot cake in the oven however! My husband was tempted to try one right of the oven. Glad he did not. I would recommend keeping them in the fridge for storage and let them get to room temperature before severing the pups. Frost only a few hours before serving.


All the dogs but one enjoyed their Dog cake treat. Chloe ate it in one gulp, we did not have time to sing she stole it out of my daughters hands!

OK the party is over I am pooped!! Now time to open the great dog products mom got me.

  1. Such a great idea to make them as cupcakes to each one can have their own!

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who does this! I layer wet and dry food in a cookie cutter, then use some dog-safe peanut butter as “icing”.

  3. Sounds like a great homemade treat. I haven’t ever made anything like that for our dogs. It would probably be better for them than the ones you can buy at the store though.

  4. This makes me so miss my bulldogs! Great idea. I know they would have loved this!

  5. Great idea! I really should make these for my dog – we didn’t celebrate her birthday this year. Better late than never…and now that I have a recipe, why not? Thanks for sharing!
