Dog Treat Recipe of the Month:

Banana & Peanut Butter Dog Cake Recipe - This dog cake can be made into a layered cake with cream cheese dog treat frosting, or into flexible muffins and mini muffins.

It is time to P-A-R-T-Y! Whether you have a casual party in your backyard, an easy going free for all at the local dog park, or a private party for you and your dog, our cakes and dog treat icings are what you need. Homemade dog treats turn a ho-hum party into something to remember.

Our favorite version of this dog cake recipe is the mini muffins. They are the perfect size for smaller dogs to split into a couple servings, and just right for the medium and larger dogs to have one or two muffins.

The muffins also travel well, so if you're going to a dog party, you can bring them as a hostess gift. Or, if you are hosting a party, make extras for a sweet favor for the dog parents to take home with them.

The layered cake makes a grand impression. Especially when you cut it open to reveal the two layers with icing or bananas in the middle. Just be aware of the serving size that your dog is enjoying. An upset tummy can quickly ruin an otherwise special event or day for your dog. Keep the dog cake slices or servings about the size of similar dog treats your dog would eat. This should keep your dogs tummy in check and keep the celebration one to remember.

Do you love to decorate homemade dog treats? Or do you dream of helping dog parents create memorable and fun dog parties complete with homemade dog treats? Then you may want to consider starting a dog treat business. To help you get started, read my review of the book about how to start your own dog bakery business.

Dog Treat Baking Tips

What Can You Substitute?

Some dog treat recipes call for a can of tuna to be ground or pureed to make a healthy dog treat. But, are you limited to only using tuna?

Most definitely not! You can use the higher quality albacore tuna, canned salmon, canned chicken or even turkey.

What if your dog is cutting back on meat in her diet or treats, then you can puree veggies that are equivalent to the amount (by weight), to the meat dog treat recipes.

Don't hesitate to make your dog delicious homemade dog treats, substitute your way to a healthy treat you and your dog will be happy about.

Share your dog treat tips with your fellow bakers! We know you have lots of great ideas, ways of making dog treats, and creative ways of decorating homemade dog treats.
