Hey everyone!

Bailey's 7th birthday is tomorrow, and I wanted to make her a birthday treat. I was going to make her a cake, but I don't think a normal human cake would be very good for her. I searched for some doggie cake recipes, and didn't really like any that I saw.
Do any of you have a good recipe for a special treat for Bailey's birthday? Cupcake...cake...anything like that?

Thanks!!

Two recipies that I have tried and liked.

Salmon Crack Dog ( or cat) Treats
1 large can drained salmon
2 eggs
1 cup flour or corn meal
dash of garlic powder (although many people feel garlic is not good for dogs... so if you prefer skip this ingredient)

Spread mixture on a greased cookie sheet....... sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
For soft version bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour
or bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cut into small pieces. For a crunchier version leave in oven longer.


DOGGONE BIRTHDAY CAKE

Recipe submitted by Jennifer Latshaw of PA
Obtained from the Petfinder.com Library at http://www.petfinder.com/journal/index.cgi?article+566

Ingredients:
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup softened butter
¼ cup corn oil
1 3.5oz jar of strained beef (baby food) or strained chicken (Read the baby food label to make sure it does notcontain onion powder, garlic, or garlic powder.)
1 cup shredded carrots
3 eggs
2 strips bacon fried and crumbled or may use dog beef jerky

plain yogurt for icing or cottage cheese

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour an 8-inch round pan. Cream butter until smooth. Add corn oil, baby food, eggs, and carrots. Mix until smooth. Gradually adding flour and baking powder continue to mix until smooth. Add crumbled bacon (or beef jerky) and fold into batter. Pour batter into greased round cake pan. Bake time: 60-70 minutes (depending on your oven – cake should bounce back.) Let cool. Top with plain yogurt or cottage cheese. Refrigerate any remaining portions

By the way... I freeze all homemade treats or cakes as they have no preservatives.

Your such a good Mom. I use a puppy peanut butter cookie recipie and bake it off then top it with melted white chocolate and sprinkles if you like. I make a few small ones for the others and big one for the pup - like a jumbo cookie but a little thicker.

we usually make a cheeseburger, shaped like a cake for Faith's b-day. one year i covered it in mashed potatoes to make it look like frosting, but the potatoes left her belly upset for a few days, so we haven't done that again.

So, do any of you just make a real cake and give your pup a tiny piece? I see a lot of ideas are very close to people food, but I didn't think it would be good for dogs?

I tried this for Loki. I made a mess with the blender, but he liked it.

1 quart vanilla yogurt
1 large banana
3 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
3 tablespoons honey (may also use molasses)

Blend everything together in the blender and then pour into little cups and freeze. Or you can pour them onto a sheet and let them start to freeze, then use cookie cutters to cut them into shapes and let them finish freezing.

If you want to be real lazy (like me) go to the store and buy a pint of fat free vanilla frozen yogurt. Dip it in some warm water so you can get it out of the carton, put it on a dish, and decorate with a little peanut butter.
Instant birthday cake!

Treats

There are a lot of recipes online for baked doggy treats, you can use traditional baking recipes, just cut back on the sugar and no chocolate! PS all dogs LOVE peanut butter, its the number one flavor among dogs according to studies. I wonder how statisticians are able to get doggy opinions lol!
