Who doesn’t love dog birthday cakes?
If you’re new to the dog cake world, allow us to break it down for you.
A dog birthday cake is simply a special treat made from ingredients that are safe for dogs.
They’ve become increasingly popular and there is a growing number of Australian small businesses who specialise in dog birthday cakes.
Many dog cakes are decorated to look extra cute or are shaped like bones and hearts.
You can bake your own cake for the special day.
In this article, we’ll share with you everything there is to know about dog birthday cakes. Let’s get started.
What kind of cakes can a dog eat?
Some dogs will eat almost everything, but many types of food aren’t safe for dogs.
That’s why you should get your dog a special doggy cake for their birthday, and not a cake made for humans.
When it comes to cakes for dogs, you can either buy one from a small business, or you can make one yourself.
If you make one yourself, you can bake a very simple cake with just a handful of ingredients, or you can go all out and bake a super special cake.
Whichever option you choose, be sure to exclude all ingredients that aren’t safe for dogs, as well as the ones that you know your dog doesn’t tolerate very well.
Additionally to cakes, you can also make pupcakes and cookies for dogs, made from dog-safe ingredients.
