How to Make a Birthday Cake for Your Dog
For the actual cake, we used —
- peanut butter
For the icing, we used yogurt and blueberries. When you make the icing, if you find it is a little too runny, simply pop it in the freezer for about 20 minutes to allow it to set up some.
Once the cake was done and cooled, we put it on the wire rack to finish cooling it off completely. You want to make sure your cake is completely cooled off before adding the frosting to it.
For the icing decorations, we mixed together the blueberries and yogurt. we frosted the cake and then used these fun Jimmie sprinkles from Nuts.com to decorate the top.
Milo LOVED his cake and it really turned out great. Not only have we made dog birthday cakes, but we have also made birthday cake for cats as well.
