Anyone have any good “pupcake” recipes? I found a few online that sounded interesting (baby food and grated carrots in the batter) but wanted to see if y’all had any tried and true ones that you would like to share? Our dogs will eat most anything if they are allowed- so I wanted to make something healthy and fun just for them!

@Lolasmomma: I don’t, but I have to say, that is freaking adorable that you’re throwing your dogs a birthday party, LOL!

I don’t have any for cake, but I have a couple for cookies. Happy birthday to your dogs!

I wouldn’t give them too many carrots. A few carrots are good for their teeth (baby carrots but I’m not sure if shredded carrots would do the same thing), but if they have too many, it can make them really sick :(. My vet told me this a few months ago.
If you have a Barnes & Noble bookstore, you should stop by & see what they have. I got my mom a book there that tells all the yummy things you can make for your dog! I know another Bee put a recipe on here too. I may have a book at home that gives good recipes, so I’ll check later.

I ordered a cake from a local dog bakery. They loved it:) And it looked like something a human could eat. But you definitely wouldn’t want to.

I made a cake for my dog’s birthday and used chicken baby food in the batter. Topped with unflavored yogurt and bacon for “sprinkles”
I can’t seem to find the recipie, but want to say that the only ingredients were flour, eggs and the chicken baby food.
She loved it! Here she is with her cake!

I made a cake for my dogs first b-day. I got the recipe from this site: http://www.dogbirthdaysandparties.com/dogbirthdaycakerecipe.htm
I made the Peanut Butter Carrot Cake and I used cream cheese as frosting – she loved it!

I can’t help but share. We had a 1st birthday party for my golden. I made yogurt cups (frozen, plain yogurt + a little peanut butter mixed in) and after Baxter ate his, he decided that he was entitled to “help” the dogs that weren’t eating quickly.
This is after I scolded him for stealing his doggie friend’s yogurt:

First (and unrelated to this topic)…I live in Morrisville! Hi neighbor!
And second, I’m late for this, but this is an archived post from my favorite vet blog where she specifically lays out an awesome doggy cake she made, with recipe:
Baking With Brody
@canthugallcats: I have never heard this; I recommend baby carrots to clients all the time. Some may not like them, or have slightly more trouble digesting them if you give a huge amount I suppose, but I have never heard of them getting sick over carrots.

I only have cookie recipes, but I am so glad to know I’m not the only one that would throw a birthday party for my dog. I mentioned this to DH as one of our dogs birthday’s is in April and the other’s is next week and I wanted to have a joint birthday party for them. He thought I was nutty. lol I typically just bake them homemade bacon-peanut butter cookies and get them doggie ice cream. They love it.
