1. Remy's Sweet Potato Pup Cake
This pup-friendly mini-layer cake by Tess over at Sweet Style is simply adorable! It contains absolutely no nasties, with ingredients including sweet potato puree, shredded carrot, oats, honey and eggs. Tess’s cute Frenchie, Remy, definitely looks like a fan!
Whilst Tess’s recipe calls for the tiniest amount of PB in her cream cheese frosting, you could totally substitute it for almond butter if your dog has a peanut allergy, or leave it out completely if you’d like to make it totally nut-free.
2. Grain-free Birthday Cake for Dogs
This grain-free pup-cake by Lindsay at Cotter Crunch is just so pretty! It was created for her sweet Vizsla pooch, Oakley, on her 1st birthday and is both grain-free/gluten-free and egg-free, making it the perfect choice for pups with sensitive tummies.
Key ingredients include chickpea flour, cinnamon, coconut oil, mashed strawberries, honey and greek yogurt (or coconut cream) for the topping. Check out the recipe on her website.
3. Raw Dog Birthday Cake
You might want to give this raw, meat-based birthday ‘cake’ a miss if you’re a human, but if you’re a doggo, you’re gonna love it! Ingredients include minced duck and beef, coconut oil, berries and dehydrated sprats – a super easy, species appropriate pup ‘cake’ if you ask us! Cudos to the creators at Mojo and Friends 👏 .
4. Coconut-Honey Doggy Cake
Super simple with only a handful of ingredients (5 to be exact), this yummy looking coconut-honey pup cake by Michelle at Brown Eyed Baker is perfect for celebrating your pup’s birthday! Ingredients include coconut oil, honey, eggs, flour and yogurt (for the ‘frosting’). Michelle’s cute Golden Retriever, Duke, looks like he can’t wait!
Head on over to Brown Eyed Baker for this super easy recipe. Be sure to check our her dog treat archives whilst you are there too – so many cute treat recipes!
5. Pumpkin Banana Pupcake
Casey from The Mindful Hapa whipped-up the above batch of scrummy looking pumpkin banana pupcakes for her pooch, Theo, for his first birthday (aww!). They’re completely nut-free with a base of pumpkin, banana, eggs and coconut oil.
Casey used a greek yogurt/low fat cream cheese mix for her frosting instead of all full-fat cream cheese as it is much kinder on Theo’s sensitive tummy.
