Your pup will be drooling when they catch a whiff of this dog birthday cake!
I have a confession to make. I go all out for Rocket's Birthday. I'm talking balloons, confetti, homemade party hats, dog birthday cake, presents and party music.
This is a text message that I sent to my mom while shopping for B-day supplies for Rocket:
“Should I feel embarrassed that I'm at the party store picking out supplies for Rocket's Bday while everyone else is shopping for their kids?”
Her answer: “Never.” Thanks, Mom!
This year Rocket turned ten years old. 10! As you can imagine, I went the extra mile since he is in the double digits now.
In my effort to make Rocket's 10th Birthday special, I decided to make him the best dang cake he has ever tasted! No party is complete without a dog birthday cake, right?

This recipe calls for all-purpose flour, but I do want to mention that flour can be the source of allergies for many dogs. Digestive problems and flaky skin are typical reactions.
If your dog has allergies, you can substitute rice flour, almond flour or coconut flour. Keep in mind that if you do use a white flour substitution, the measurements may be slightly different so check the packaging.

Oh, guess what? You can eat this cake too! Mind you; it won't taste great because there isn't any sugar in it. If you drizzle it with extra honey or dip it in ice cream, it will taste better. Ice cream makes everything taste better! It's just fun to be able to share this treat with your pup.
If you make this dog birthday cake, please send me a photo of your pup with it! I'll upload your photo here! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Dog Birthday Cake” in the subject line.
