Doggie Birthday Cake
This dog birthday cake is super fun to make. I made this for my dog, and she ate it all up. The honey is optional, but it makes the cake a sweeter treat for the dog. And yes, I tried some — it's pretty good.

Awesome Recipe!!! I made it for my dog, Sparky's first birthday! We went to the dog park and all of the dogs got a piece. All of them went crazy over the cake and couldn't get enough of it! I did change one thing...I made icing out of honey and oeanut butter. Thank you so much for this recipe!!! :PRead More
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 =)
I threw my puppy a birthday party for his first birthday and made this along with a couple of other doggie dishes. This turned out awesome! I cant wait to make it again next year.
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!

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!
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!!
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!
Happy 10th birthday Mackie! I baked this in a 8x8 pan. I followed ingredients as directed. I spread some peanut butter on top as 'icing' and she loved this! Cute idea. THX
I made this for the first time today for my puppy's first birthday, and it was super easy and fun. I doubled the recipe to make a total of 12 cupcakes and only baked them for 20 minutes. They came out perfect- rose just enough to make the tops nice and rounded. I iced them with cream cheese+peanut butter and topped them off with a milk bone. The dogs all loved them. I expected them to get the runs, but they were all fine! I will definitely be making these every year.
Made for my puppy's 1st birthday...he and his friends devoured them. I made as "pupcakes" and the recipe yielded 8.
I made the recipe into "Pup Cakes" for my Labs' birthdays. I added a couple shakes of cinnamon and substituted applesauce for the oil. These looked better than most of my regular cupcakes or muffins with perfectly rounded tops. I tried a small piece and it tasted like a very bland muffin. I made a frosting of peanut butter mixed with a little cream cheese and piped it on top. Our dogs thought they were fantastic! I was a little concerned because one of my pups swallowed his whole.
A great Doggy Recipe! I made these in mini muffin pans! Decorated with Fat Free Cream Cheese blended with Sugar Free Peanut Butter Frosting Mix. Left out the Oil. Not need for it. The peanut butter has enough oil for the cake. Also Dogs should not have white flour, You must use whole wheat flour.
This was the BEST doggie recipe yet!!! It was so easy and they smelled so good! What a treat after all the disgusting liver recipes I have made! I did make these into the small cupcakes so I food processed the shredded carrots to make them smaller and then baked them for 10-15 minutes. Perfect size for a treat!
Well the birthday boy really seemed to enjoy this cake, so 5 stars it is! I did include the optional honey. I baked this in a 9 inch round cake pan for ~25 minutes.
We had to make substitutions for our boxer who has food allergies - 1 mashed banana for the egg, rice flour instead of all-purpose, and no carrots (but only because we didn't have any on hand). I also added a dash of cinnamon to the dry ingredients before mixing it all in. Baked in cupcake pan for individual-size servings and frosted with a little dollop of chunky peanut butter. The result? The perfect banana-peanut butter-honey-cinnamon once-a-year special birthday treat!
I made these for my dog's first birthday. I did make them as cupcakes so that they were easy to share. The dogs loved them! Next time, I will make them as mini-muffins so that they are even easier to share.
my doggie does not like peanut butter. seems like most of these recipes call for peanut butter. i dont want my puppy to dislike his birthday. any suggestions on what I can replace it with?
My dogs and their friends loved this birthday cake.
This cake smells wonderful, and, yes, the birthday pup and his guests loved it! To the recipe we added only a tablespoon of honey and used brown rice flour in lieu of the wheat/white. We frosted the cake with a mixture of cream cheese and cottage cheese and decorated with some mini biscuits.
Great recipe. I was in a hurry and didn't want to grate carrots so I used pureed butternut squash from a can. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. I baked in mini muffin tins and frosted with peanut butter. They turned out adorable, and Sadie loved them. Easy recipe.
My dogs loved this! The kept crying at me to give them more. My one dog knows how to say, *I love you* and she kept screaming it at me haha. Making this for all my future dogs birthdays
Although the batter looks really dry, they bake up moist and soft on the inside. I used a cupcake tin, which made about 6 cupcakes. My Precious loves them--great treat for her 7th birthday today! Thanks!
My german shepherd LOVED LOVED LOVED this cake. He ate the entire thing! Did the same as others used peanut butter mixed with honey. Placed his kibble on top, and I sliced some of his doggy bacon strips in thin pieces and lined that around the side of the cake.
My dog loved this from the time I prepped it to the time I gave it to him. I wanted to make him a cake for his first birthday. I followed the directions other then using a sifter (I used a fork to sift the baking soda into the wheat flour). I also didn't have a cake pan so I used a pie pan. I dont know if its because I used a gas stove, but mine was good to go in that pie pan in 25 min at 350F. I used a frosting of whipped cream chz, plain yogurt, honey and some cinnamon. Just mix to the consistancy you want. Add the whipped crm chz first then the yogurt little by little. It stays thicker that way. Put it in the fridge for a few hours then I frosted the cake added a few pup treats and carrots for decoration. My dog LOVED IT! It was easy to make too! Im definitely using this recipie again!
Great base recipe, i used pumpkin instead if carrots and made cupcakes (12)they did not need the full 40 min, just cook beyond 20 min until top springs back. Made a yogurt, pumpkin and honey glaze and topped with mini bones made with peanut butter and iced with pumpkin cream cheese. I crumbled some dog treats and covered the cupcake edges with them. They were perfectly moist and tasty, considering they are dog treats.
I made these for my 10-year old yellow and black labs! They turned out fantastic and let me tell you how much my babies loved them! I made exactly as written and instead of putting in a cake pan, I used a muffin pan and made 8 muffins. Will definitley make again!
I just made this for my mini dachshund's, Frankie, 1st Birthday. He absolutely loved it! I made a mini layer cake with Easy Bake Oven pans, and made mini pupcakes with the rest. I also used cream cheese and peanut butter for frosting. The only thing I changed was that I cooked them for about 15-20 minutes instead of 40. This is a wonderful recipe!
This was awesome! I had a doggie party of 6 dogs, made into cupcakes so the owners could feed their own pets. They loved it..I think some owners 'shared' their cupcake.
My Jack loved this for his 5th Birthday. And really slap some cream cheese frosting on this and it could make for a human carrott muffin treat.
It's my dog's birthday today, so I wanted to bake something delicious for him, and these definitely did the trick. I cut the recipe in half and made 4 decently-sized cupcakes in foil baking cups on a cookie sheet. I didn't have any carrots, so I added a bit of chicken broth for moisture and then fried up two strips of bacon. Most of the bacon went into the batter, and I saved four small pieces to put on top of the cupcakes. While the cupcakes were baking, I poured just a little bit of chicken broth into the bacon pan and scooped the resulting mixture into a bowl and added a little more peanut butter for a "frosting." He. went. crazy. I had more fun watching him devour the cupcake than he did eating it, I'm sure. Great recipe. :)
My dog gives this 2 paws up! Super easy to make, and my dog loved it (although she loves everything, she's a Lab). I frosted with peanut butter and decorated it with some o's cereal I had in my cupboard. I would definitely make this again!
Made these today for my pups first birthday! Hopefully everything turned out alright, the batter seemed more like cookie dough batter than anything, but once it was cooked it all seemed fine. Tried them out on my little brother, who thought they were delicious! hopefully the doggies like them!
What can I say...my Alex loved it! Great recipe!
I am giving this recipe a 5-star because I gave it to 3 dogs, and they ate it right up fast. I made around 12 cupcakes with this mix, but I didn't have any honey, so the batter was pretty dry. I only baked those for half an hour. I was a bit curious as to whether the dogs would actually want it, but they certainly did!
Made this for my Samantha's 1st birthday...both she and her doggie sister, Lucy LOVED them!! Will definitely be my "go to" recipe for future doggie bday celebrations!!
After looking through several dog cake recipes online that involved alot of liver and beef which i'm not to keen on cooking, I settled on this one for Giacomos (my 1 year old pom) first birthday. I iced it with a peanut butter and yogurt icing which mimicked human icing as much as possible in look. I gave him and his dog-friends a slice with a frosty paws ice cream and he loved it! My mother's greyhound did steal the rest though.
I made this cake for my English Bulldog's 2nd birthday. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a paw shaped baking pan. She loved it! I made icing with organic creamy peanut butter and low-fat cream cheese, just a little to put over the paw pads to make the shape more noticeable. We shared it with 3 other dogs and they devoured it as well! Very simple to make, will definitely make again and definitely recommend you try this recipe for your fury best-friend!
This was fun and easy. I made the following adjustments based on a dogs diet: 1) Almond Flour vs white or wheat flour. (Rice flour would work as well) 2) one banana vs. canola oil (apple sauce would work if you don't have a banana). We used organic honey and natural peanut butter (lots of oil in natural PB). I used some cream cheese, a little peanut butter, a splash of milk and a splash of water to make icing. We baked this in a 9in round pan. Baked for 35 mins and it looked over done but was not. The birthday boy and his guests devoured their treat in minutes.
My Ziggy turns 14 today so reason to celebrate. Had never made him a cake before, always biscuits, but when I saw this recipe & reviews I had to try. I made mini cupcakes (so he could share with his friends) and got 36 from this recipe - 12 minutes in the oven. Made no changes (& do use the honey) and he absolutely loves them !! As soon as they came out of the oven he was ready to do a quality control check :-) Did ice them with a cream cheese & honey mix. Everyone loved them. Great recipe - Thank You
This was very good cake, both for our birthday pups and us! The people servings had ice cream on top, otherwise it is fairly dry. I admit I had to make a few substitutions due to allergies (almond butter and grain-free flour), and I added a sprinkle of cinnamon, but the flavour was wonderful. I baked it in a dog-shaped pan (from Ikea) in a convection oven and it was done in 20 minutes. I think I will play around with it to make it a bit more moist for people!
These deserve 10 stars according to my dog, Jay. : ) I used a chunky, natural peanut butter and canned pumpkin instead of carrots since these were a last minute decision to make, and the pumpkin was easier. I also used plain greek yogurt for half the oil, and I used olive oil for the rest of the oil. I did use ww flour, and I also added a couple tablespoons flaxseed meal for some added health benefits. He absolutely loves them, and they were a perfect b-day treat. I've already shared with my fellow dog-loving friends! Thanks for the recipe...I am definitely making them again!
This cake was awesome. I made it for my dog's 1st bday party and she and her friends enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
I just made this for my Pug, Frank's, 5th Birthday. I didn't have any carrots on hand, and didn't feel like going to the store, so I substituted 3/4 cup organic pumpkin puree. It worked beautifully. I frosted it with peanut butter. All 4 of my pugs loved it!!!
my pups loved these..and i love that my husband didn't mind them either (i tried them..kinda dry, but doggies didn't mind one bit).
I thought it came out a little dry but the pooch loved this!
It was super easy, but our puppy wasn't too sure about it...she eventually ate it, but she carried a piece of it around for awhile before she did!
I made this for my dog Eva's 2nd b-day and she loved it
I made this for my dog's (Chihuahua mix, Beamer) birthday. He and his visitors (four other doggies, 3 Westies and another Chihuahua mix) loved it! I will definitely be making this for his next birthday. :) Thanks for the recipe!!!
VERY good recipe!!! Simple, on hand ingredients, dogs loved it! I frosted it with low fat cream cheese and a touch of honey whipped together. Then I wrote on the cake with " icing" which was one grated carrot. I pureed the carrots, added some peanut butter.....then scooped it into a small zip lock bag, snipped off a tiny corner of the bag to make a sort of pastry bag to write with
Babysitting our fur nephews this weekend while their parents were away in Las Vegas. I made this for a 6th birthday for one of them. It was a big hit with all 3 dogs! Very simple to make!
I did this same recipe in January for one of my dogs Oakey he's a dachsund, he loved it but I noticed it was dry followed the recipe exactly, so this time instead of 40 min I did 25 min only and it was perfect. Oakey still ate his pup cakes, still loved he noticed I made some today for my lab Mack it's his birthday as you see in this pic he's excited lol!! Love this recipe thanks!!
I didn't have a bundt pan so I made cupcakes instead. My dog loves these pupcakes!
What a fantastic recipe. I used 1/2 cup carrots and 1/2 cup shredded apples and my dogs LOVED it..Great recipe:)
My french bulldog loved theese ( no suprise here , he would consume anything ) , this is the only recipe that I found that didn't include anything disgusting so it was a pleasure to make :) , today I'm making it as a christmas treat for him.
Really easy and my dog loved it. She is pretty sensitive and it didn't upset her stomach at all. The batter does look dry but bakes and rises nicely.
My "Bear" loved his 5 year birthday cake. I found a recipe for an awesome icing to top off the cake. 3 TBSP Greek Yogurt + 1 & 1/2 TBSP Peanut Butter; I did have to triple the icing ingredients for it to cover the cake, but "Bear" was so excited to lick the spatula after I mixed the icing.
I made this cake last year for Laila's 1st doggie party and ALL the dogs loved it. Well 1 os the dogs ate 3 cupcakes and it wasn't the little ones!! so that tells everything =D
This is a great recipe for dogs! I did make a few changes to it though that are not drastic and really don't require any extra work. I changed the flour to rice flour as it is easier to digest for dogs and I cut the amount of carrot in half and instead added in half of a mashed banana. I also baked them in a cupcake pan so it would be a small cake for my dog because she has a sensitive stomach. I also added a frosting made of fat free Greek yogurt and peanut butter. with a tiny bit of honey. She devoured it!
I have 3 dogs and they all loved these. I used a mini muffin pan and made them into pupcakes and topped with icing made of cream cheese & peanut butter.
I made this for my minnie poodles 2nd Birthday and he went nuts over it! It is a little dry but he didn't seem to mind ! I cut it out in the shape of a dog bone .
thank you for the recipe my dog loved it and it was really fun to make with my mom and brother. thank u
My dog did not care for this recipe.
Made this for our dogs 1st birthday. She LOVED it! I skipped the honey and the batter was very thick so I added an extra egg. I used a cupcake pan and only needed to bake them for about 20 minutes. I also shaped some of the batter into tiny cookies and our cat enjoyed those. Our pets thank you for this recipe!
We had a big birthday party for my daughter's dog, 13 in all and they all loved it! Have made it a few times since. I frost it with peanut butter (a little honey mixed in to make it spread better) and write on it with melted carob (melt at half strength in a ziplock then snip the corner to write.)
My three dogs LOVED this cake, one of my doggies is extremely picky and so we were amazed how besotted he was with this cake. Making this for them every year now!
I made this for my pups 1st birthday and she loved it!! My four year old liked it as well and wouldn't stop sneaking pieces of it lol Great recipe, Ty for sharing!!
My dog got one for her 2nd Birthday and I used cream cheese frosting she loved it so when we rescued our second dog we just made cupcakes instead of a single so they could share... It has been a tradition every birthday since.
The batter was extremely thick, not like a normal batter at all which worried me but I double checked I'd done everything correctly and put it in the oven. When I took it out it had not risen at all ) and was more the texture of a cookie than a cake so not very happy with this.
I made this cake for the 1 year anniversary of my Rez Dog rescue dog, Jasper's adoption and my daughter's rescue dog Nyah. I substituted coconut oil for the cooking oil and used oat flour instead of wheat flour. I then frosted it with a cream cheese and pumpkin frosting. It turned out great and they loved it!
Great recipe! Made this for my Shih Tzu's first birthday :-) She loved it and so did her puppy friends Photo added - Love heart shaped Thank you!
My 13 year old son and I made this for our dog yesterday and it turned out great. We used a square 8x8 pan so we only baked it for about 25 minutes.
I made this for my pup's first birthday. Both of my dogs loved it. I made an icing out of mashed potatoes, water, and purple food coloring. I also used some extra shredded carrots and chopped walnuts as "sprinkles". It was adorable and simple, my 7 year old daughter did most of the work. Thanks for the recipe!
Made this for Buddy's third birthday and he loved it! He ate three slices. I used a regular circular pan though but it came out great!
we used this recipe last year and today for my pooches birthday he loves it and can't get enough if your doing this for your dogs b-day and are having other dogs over i would recommend doing cupcakes its really easy if other dogs are hanging out to my boy scrappy who turned 6 on april 17 is going to be so happy with his birthday cake
made this tonight for my doggie's 14th birthday, sadly her health is failing so it will most likely be her last. everyone, especially her, loved it. thank you for sharing this recipe so I could do something special for her big day. kids loved it, too!
Made this today for Tyson our boxer for his 5th Birthday. I did substitute rice flour (found at Asian market) for the wheat flour as wheat is not good for dogs. Both dogs loved it! Will make it for all their special days!
Made this for my chinese crested who turned 6! She loved them. made cupcakes instead of a cake. Thanks for the recipe :-)
I may make it for may make it for my dog one of these days! Loved the video!!! Real cute!!!
My pup's first birthday was today, I made the cake last night. I found it weird how the cake turned out, but I remembered..this is not a "normal" cake. Regardless, it was VERY easy to make and Kira ate it up within 5 minutes. I highly recommend it.
Great recipe...though I substituted applesauce for the cooking oil and I used a mini muffin pan since i have small dogs. Turned out perfect.
This is great. I read the 1 star review and that person must have done something wrong.
I made this cake two years in a row, my dog Mocha is now 14 years old! Her and her buddy Fergie just devour it!I suggest this cake for any of you reading this now!:)
Made this recipe two weeks ago for my dogs birthday and included some homemade icing icing and they loved it! Left not one bit! Doing it again today for my other pooches birthday!
All of my dogs LOVE LOVE LOVE this Birthday cake when I make it on their special day!!! We even shared with the neighbor dogs who all LOVED it as well :)
I made this for my puppy's first birthday.... She loved it and so did the humans! My daughter even said she wants me to make this cake for her birthday! I used coconut oil (warmed to liquid state) and added a pinch of cinnamon. I baked in a mini bundt cake pan (20 min), which made 6 mini cakes, frosted with peanut butter and topped with banana sliced. I will be make this again!
The recipe was great and my Bulldog Remy liked it for his first birthday! I added a peanut butter 'frosting' by melting it with water, soy milk and a little agave nectar.
I have been making birthday cakes for my fury babies for years using this recipe! I bake it in a dog bone shaped pan at 350 degrees about 30 minutes. Great recipe!
Made this for my fur baby's 2nd birthday today. She absolutely loves it and so does our other little puppy! Such a moist feeling cake too!
I made these for my puppy's first birthday and he LOVED them! I followed the recipe as-is and it made about 9 standard size cupcakes. I gave my puppy the largest one in the batch and he gobbled it up. Thanks! This is a keeper!
My pups loved these, so did my husband. We made small cupcakes, perfect size for my small dogs. Will definitely make again.
I made this for dogs first birthday and they loved it!! We even shared a piece with the neighbors dog and she loved it too!! Very easy and will definitely cook it again!!
I made this recipe without the honey. My dogs loved it and another dog I shared with! Awesome for doggies!
I made this for my furbaby's 3rd bday and she absolutely loved it. It gets 5 stars because my mom even loved it, so much so that she wrote the recipe down to make for herself (with a little tweaking) LOL. I personally didn't think it tasted that good for human consumption but my mom sure did. I added the honey and also added a cup of shredded apple to the recipe.
Awesome recipe!!!! I baked this cake for my dog's 11th b day. I made cupcakes and frosted them with a mixture of yogurt, honey, and peanut butter. The dogs loved them! I used grated zucchini insead of carrots because I didn't have any.
I made this cake just as a treat for my dogs yesterday (February 14), and to celebrate our only female dog's birthday. They loved it! We have small dogs with sensitive stomachs, and I was a little concerned that it might upset their bellies, but, not only did they all inhale it, but managed to keep it down! It made them really thirsty, but I was really pleased how this recipe turned out. Even our finicky Shih Tzu loved it!
I made these for my girl's 3rd birthday. Doubled it to make 12 and mixed a few table spoons of cream cheese with all natural peanut butter for icing. Used whole wheat flour and natural pb in the cupcakes as well. They tasted great and she LOVED them. My only suggestion is that 40 minutes might be about 10 minutes too long as they were a bit dry... hard to say if it's the baking or the recipe that made them so. Either way, she didn't care one bit.
Great recipe! My three dogs devoured this almost as soon as I set down the bowls.
My dogs absolutely loved this and they gobbled it up immediately! Also, do use whole wheat flour rather than plain flour for dogs! I did make quite a few changes to the recipe, by replacing the egg with banana (but banana isn't much of a binding agent so it was a little crumbly), leaving out the honey, and making it as a muffin rather than a cake. I'll try using coconut oil in the future as I feel like it'll be a healthier alternative. Also, baking time for muffins is around 15 mins. Overall, great recipe.
