Read on to learn how you can make a birthday cake for your dog too!

If you are like us, you love to spoil your dog. he has more toys than any of my kids had, and don't get me started on all the pet treats we make for him.

How to Make a Birthday Cake for Your Dog

For starters, you need to find the right size pan for your dog. For this recipe, we chose to use a 6″ round cake pan. You can also use this bone-shaped cake pan if you like.

For the actual cake, we used —

  • flour
  • peanut butter
  • Cinnamon
  • eggs
  • applesauce
  • bananas

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 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.

If you find the icing too runny, you can pop it in the freezer to let it set up some.
