DIY Dog Cake & Cupcake Recipes

I love special occasions.

Birthdays. Christmas. Halloween. The Summer Solstice. Random Tuesdays. I love a cake occasion. In fact, one of my favourite hobbies is making fancy human cakes, so it seems like a no-brainer that I also love creating delicious homemade cakes and cupcakes for dogs.

Dog Cake and Cupcakes Recipes You Can Make for Your Pooch

Frequently Asked Dog Cake Questions

Why are so many of your dog cake recipes grain-free?

My first dog Felix was a hot mess of allergies and food intolerances. Feeding him foods with wheat, corn or soy often turned him into an itchy hot spot mess. Since many of our recipes were developed specifically for him, a lot of them are grain-free. I am working on testing a lot of them with regular wheat flour to see if they can be made both ways. I will post updates as I can.

Can I substitute the flour you have used for another type?

Maybe? Flour can be a fickle ingredient. Some items sub really well; others not well at all. For example, if I made a recipe with grain-free baking mix, you can probably use regular wheat flour without an issue, but if you tried to use coconut flour, it would be a disaster. Use ingredient subs at your own risk, but if you find one that works great, I would LOVE to hear about it!

How long are dog cakes and cupcakes good for?

Tough one. After all, treats are supposed to be a small part of your dog’s diet, so it can be hard to use a whole dog cake or batch of dog cupcakes before they spoil. Typically, I store fresh baked dog treats in the fridge for 3 – 5 days and then pop the rest in the freezer for up to 3 months. Freezing your leftover dog treats is a great way to preserve them longer and offer your dog fun surprises when they least expect it.
