Puppy Cake!

Standard

The morning that I baked scones that my Foodie Penpal sent me, I decided to bake for our pooches, too! It was about time to make the Red Velvet Puppy Cake that our pooches received in their Holiday Barkbox. I had intended to make them for Sophie’s birthday earlier in January, but that day came and went. She is now an eight-year-old pooch! I can hardly believe it. Some days, she still acts like a little puppy. She still loves to play!

Puppy Cake batter

I just added egg, oil and water to the mix to make the batter.

out of the oven.

Immediately after removing them from the oven, I popped them out to let them cool.

What makes them red? Beet powder!

Once cool, I just added water to the "frosting" mix to turn them into frosted cupcakes!

All natural, human grade ingredients!

I love this short list of human grade ingredients.

The cupcakes are wheat-free, making them easily digestible for dogs. And yes, because they are made of human grade ingredients, I just had to take a bite to taste one. Of course, they weren’t sweet like a true cupcake. And there was a very strong beet flavor. So, nothing I’d really enjoy, but they weren’t meant for me… So it was time to see what the dogs thought.

After I served Rob and I our scones, I put one cupcake on a plate for Sophie and one for Benny, knowing that as soon as I put them on the floor, they would devour them. Just as I suspected, Benny put his mouth around it and put the whole thing in his mouth! It was gone in seconds. Sophie, on the other hand, daintily licked all of the frosting off before biting into her cake! It was very difficult to get photos of all this in action, but I tried:

I think by the fact that they finished their cupcakes in seconds and that they accepted pieces of the cupcakes as treats throughout the week with no problem, I would have to say that Puppy Cake was a winner. You can find out more about Puppy Cake products on their website.

Do you cook for your pets?

If so, what are your favorite recipes?

I still want to make these Peanut Butter Dog Cookies made my volunteer for the Wags and Whiskers 5k!

  1. Too cute! I think it’s adorable. I don’t have a dog, but my old pup used to occasionally get those doggie ice cream cups in the summer months.
