I really recommend this cake pan from HINMAY. It’s silicone and super flexible. Oh, and did I mention that icing tool is great! Just LOOK at that Icing tool! This can come in handy because later I’m going to show you how to make peanut butter into frosting.
I also love these 4-inch birthday candles from Pawsome Doggie! They’re so cute! You can use these on the cake later, but, oh! They are NOT edible.

Ingredients to Make Your Doggy’s Cake

• 1/4 cup peanut butter
• 1/4 cup cooking oil
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 egg
• 1/3 cup honey (optional)
• 1 cup shredded carrots
• 1 cup flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda

Time needed: 1 hour.

Dog Cake!

  1. Preheat!

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Now, grease a cake pan.

  2. Make the batter!

    Then, combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and honey. Fold in the carrots. In a large bowl, combine the flour and baking soda. Pour the flour-baking soda mix into the bowl with the other ingredients. Blend well. Pour into the cake pan.

  3. Bake!

    Put the cake in the oven for 40 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack before decorating or serving.

  4. Frosting!

    Put some peanut butter into a bowl, enough to frost your cake. Put it into the microwave until it is warm and soft enough to put in the icing tool. Use the tool to make a design.

  5. Design Ideas!

    Write Happy Birthday (Dog’s Name)! In the center of the cake. Put squiggly lines around the bowl. Use dog-theme candles to complete.
    Or… Not the best designer? Yeah, we’ve all been there. Just a few loop-de-loops around the edge of the cake, doggy bone candles, and some doggy safe sprinkles… and, voila!
    Also, don’t let your dog eat the WHOLE cake. That’s a lot.
