Are you planning what to prepare for your pet’s birthday? But what’s a birthday without a cake? Yes! Rev-up your pet’s birthday celebration with a customised birthday cake that’s complete with toppings and frosting. You can choose to order a pet-friendly cake from a local bakery or cafe, or you can dig in your pantry and whisk a gorgeous birthday cake for your fur baby. If you do decide to make the cake, be sure to use ingredients that are not harmful to dogs. The most common ingredients that are used in doggy birthday cakes include:
Choose whole-grain flour, such as wheat flour, because it’s a healthier option compared to all-purpose white flour which is extremely processed and has a very low nutrient count. If your pet is sensitive to wheat or is on a grain-free diet, you can use non-grain flour such as coconut flour.
Seedless apples, carrots, blueberries, peas, pear, potatoes, strawberries, and pumpkin
For the cake’s frosting, you can use applesauce, low-sugar yogurt, pumpkin puree, mashed potatoes, bananas, peanut butter, coconut oil, honey (small amount only), and sweet potato puree.
If you’re not confident about your baking skills, there are delicious no-bake cakes that you can make for your fur baby, such as frozen yogurt delight, peanut butter cake, pumpkin and peanut cake, and cheesy bacon log cake. Here are some of the mouth-watering cake recipes that will surely have your pet drooling for more.
The ingredients are really simple! Just banana, eggs and a little coconut oil! If you’re a terrible baker (like me), this would be the pawfect starter “birthday cake” for your furkid! Check out this video on how to make your own banana pancakes.
What dog can’t resist a meat-filled cake for his birthday? Simply cook some meat and piece them together like a cake! Then add some of your dog’s or cat’s favourite ingredients or favourite treats! This hard-to-resist birthday cake is jam-packed with proteins and other nutrients.

For those that are feeding your pets a raw diet, do not fret! Your cat or dog will not be missing out on a birthday cake! Get yourself some raw ground meat or mince it yourself, use a cake mold, and simply start building! Alternatively, get yourself some freeze-dried raw food, rehydrate and mold into the shape of a cake. Add some freeze-dried raw treats as toppings!
