I made this one year for my dog and she ate it all up. The honey is optional, but it makes it sweeter for the dog...and yes, I tried some. It's pretty good.

First off, let me just state that upon finding this recipe, i was so excited to make this cake for my dogs. Both have sweet tooths and will consume just about anything. After reading so many 5 star reviews, i thought i struck gold. After making the cake exactly as instructed, both my dogs sniffed and walked away. Thinking maybe they were just full (which is near impossible because theyre bottomless pits when it comes to food) i left it out gor them. the following day i find it untouched. Read More

I made this recipe into pupcakes and donated them to the humane society for my birthday. Not before I let my Cookie try one--She loved it, and it didn't make her sick =) Read More

Made these last night for Milly's 2nd birthday & both of my dogs loved them! I followed the ingredients exactly as they were, but I filled jumbo foil cupcake baking cups placed on a cookie sheet for baking them. 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes and they were done! Read More

Used this recipe to make pupcakes for my Dudley's 4th birthday. The "kids" loved them. Used extra peanut butter to frost, and yogurt drops to decorate. Thanks! Read More

We had a family party and 4 dogs were there, all but one had a birthday right around our party. I made these birthday cakes for the dogs and they LOVED them. I added a little bit of cinnamon and a small amount of salt to the dry ingredients. When I was mixing the wet into the dry, it was too dry (I didn't reallly measure the PB so that might be why), so I added some chicken broth that I had. I did use the honey. I baked them in small aluminum pie pans that are for chicken pot pies. They were perfectly baked in the 40 minutes. My husband decided to try a piece to see what it tasted like and he really liked it. He kept feeding one piece to the dog and one piece to himself hahahaha. I will definitely make this in the future for the pups!! Read More

It was fun to make with my boys and the dogs loved it! I was worried because the recipe did not call for water but it turned out perfect. We made it for our sweet Daisy's 70th (10 in people years) B-day! Read More
