Birthday Cake for Dogs

Birthday cake for dogsWhen your dog is really a member of the family, you cannot let his birthday pass by without some special fanfare. And since dogs are our best friends what better way to let them celebrate than with a dog birthday cake or a special dog birthday cake recipe. Yes, you can let him have his cake - and eat it too. It can even be nutritional and good for them, which is totally unlike anything we people get. We load up on the sugar and chocolate icing with all the candies on top and then wonder how in the world we gained five pounds. We don't want the dogs to gain weight because that is bad for them too. Here is a dog birthday cake recipe that will actually be good for your pet and he will just gobble it up and he/she will be a happy dog!

We all know that dog years count 7 years to our 1 year so they really get to celebrate! Below is a super Dog Birthday Cake recipe that you and your kids can make together to surprise your favorite poochie with. This is a versatile dog birthday cake, and one that you can adjust and fit to your own particular pet's preference. You can dress these up with your own special touches and even add some nutritional extras to make the dog birthday cake healthier. Here is a tip: by adding Vitamin E it will enrich their shine on their coat. Another is that calcium will strengthen their bones. Vitamins and minerals work the same with our pets as they do with us, so another tip is to add these supplements weekly into their food to keep them healthy year round.

Here a basic recipe:

1 ½ c. Flour
1 ½ tsp. Baking powder
¼ c. margarine
¼ c. oil
1 jar strained chicken, or beef baby food
(use shredded meat if you want, and add ½ c. milk)
1 c. shredded carrots or their favorite veggie
3 eggs
2 strips bacon
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese or use cottage cheese if your pooch prefers.

Mix flour and baking powder together; set aside. In large bowl, cream margarine until smooth. Add corn oil, baby food, eggs and carrots; mix until smooth, gradually add flour and baking powder to the mixture and blend. Pour batter into well-greased and floured 8 inch round pan. Bake in a preheated 325F oven 50-60 minutes. Take cake out of oven and add shredded cheddar and crumbled bacon bits to the top. Put back in oven for 10 minutes. When cheese is melted, take out and let cool on wire rack for a few minutes before removing from pan.

You can decide if you want to make this an extra special celebration for Fido, and add a scoop of his favorite ice cream. Remember he's just aged 7 years - he deserves it! Any liver snaps or rawhide bones are an added bonus.

Have a Happy Dog Birthday party! It really is a dog's life, isn't it?
