Do you bake a puppy cake for a dog birthday? This year our pup did not have her traditional dog birthday. I know it sounds crazy but I usually make a dog birthday cake or dog cupcake recipe and give them to some of the neighbor dogs on her birthday which also happens to be National Dog Day. Knowing that most of her pup friends were out of town this year, I was thrilled to find an Impossibly Easy Four Ingredient Dog Cake for One. As much as Chloe would like to enjoy a piece of a dog safe cake daily, this was the best option to keep her weight in check.
Four Ingredient Dog Birthday Cake for One
For this super simple dog cake you only need four ingredients. Most likely you have everything in your cupboard already. The most challenging part of this recipe is grating the apple. That was a joke people, not a hard task, my 11 year-old did this for us. This is also a grain free recipe incase your dog has any allergies.
All you need to do is simply mix all the ingredients and dump it into a Jumbo cupcake tin. You could make two smaller muffins too if you wanted to use a regular size muffin tin. Just be sure to reduce the cooking time.
Now for the dog cake decorations.
While this dog cake would be easily devoured like this, my son and I found some fun alphabet dog treats and could not resist buying her name for a topping.
For the dog cake frosting, we lathered a thin layer of Zero Fat Greek Yogurt on top of the dog birthday cake.
Now the true test is to see what Chloe thinks about her Dog Birthday Cake…
It is always torture to get her to pose for pictures with something delicious in front of her.
Check out the drool on this picture.
If you saw her instagram post for her birthday, she chomped this in only a few bites…
