Hey guys! Today I just wanted to share with you something awesome I did for my pups over the weekend!
While shopping at Target, I came across these super cute Three Dog Bakery Cake mixes for dogs. There were a variety of flavors including carob cake, carrot cake, peanut butter, and vanilla so I decided to buy two for my pets as they were on clearance at my particular Target. They are still for sale online though). My sister and I picked up the peanut butter and carob cake and made one this weekend!
Long story short, the cake was really easy to make, came out great, and all three of our dogs loved them!
The cake mix comes with a mixture for the cake and for an icing that you can put on top. It has instructions for making a cake or for cupcakes, whichever you prefer. We decided to make cupcakes as they are easier for our dogs to eat separately.
All you need to make the Three Dog Bakery Cake is the three following ingredients:
1/3 Cup of Honey
1/3 Cup of Oil
1 Cup of Water
Once you mix up the ingredients with the cake mix, you pop those babies in the oven for the instructed amount of time and voila you have some delicious home made doggie cupcakes or a doggie cake for you pups to enjoy!
For the cupcakes, you will need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake 22-28 minutes. For a six inch round cake you will bake it in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
Once the cupcakes or cake have cooled, you can prepare the icing for your puppy’s treat! All you need to add to the icing is two tablespoons of water. My only warning about the icing is to make sure you ice your cake or cupcakes as quickly as possible. The icing will begin to harden as soon as you are done mixing it.
To add a finished look to our home made treats, we decorated our cupcakes with Nutro crunchy dogs treats and then sprinkled them with the same crushed dog treats.
As soon as we had our completed product, we took them outside to let our pups enjoy them. Needless to say, they were in love with the cupcakes. They gobbled them down right away and were begging for more!
I definitely recommend the Three Dog Bakery Cake mixes for your dogs. Not only was making them a fun way to spend the afternoon, but your pup will truly enjoy the delicious treat homemade with love!
