I love to celebrate my dog’s birthdays and part of the fun is making a dog friendly Birthday cake. This grain-free beef dog cake recipe is baked inside trachea ring dog chews making it an adorable pupcake sized treat.

Today is my fifth birthday! I‘m all growed up.
Lookit how little I was. Lookit my tiny little bobblehead. ROOOOOO!
I don’t know about you, but think the best part of any birthday is the cake.
When I think of all our tasty birthday cakes over the years, they are some of my absolutely favourite treats. There was the doggy cheesecakes, the frozen cakes, the pupcakes, the list goes on and on.
This year is no exception.
Since the Mama is abandoning me to go to BlogPaws later today, she decided to go all out and create a really special birthday pupcake.
It’s a chewy. It’s a pupcake. It’s a pawty in my mouth and you’re all invited.
the Mama bought Felix and I a bag of beef trachea rings to try. We loved them. Mama is always looking for meaty treats and chews that she can feel good about giving us. She wants our treats to be tasty, meaty and above all safe, which is why we don’t get any skin chews. These trachea ring pieces were a hit and the Mama knew those treats were destined to become something more.
This year, Mama came up with a beef dog cake recipe and she made that cake inside trachea rings!
What the woof?! A tasty cake inside one of my favourite dog chew? Woofles and gentlepaws, THE MAMA FTW!
