Parsley is a nice addition to this potato dog treat icing. The parsley adds color and may help with bad dog breath.


  • 2 medium Idaho potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1/2 cup water (or enough to cover potatoes)
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1/8 cup fat free sour cream


  1. Peel the potatoes, and cut away any green parts (see dangerous dog treats for more information).
  2. Cut into 1 inch cubes for ease when mashing.
  3. Bring potatoes and parsley to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Stir (and begin to mash) occasionally.
  6. Add additional water if the potatoes are too dry.
  7. Remove from heat.
  8. Stir in the sour cream.
  9. Continue to stir, mash or beat until no more lumps. Add additional water if the icing is too thick to spread.

When decorating your cakes or dog cupcakes with this potato dog treat icing, don't forget about the presentation. If you are topping a dog treat that has another vegetable in it, such as peas or carrots, why not place them around the border of the cupcake. You could also spell out your dogs name or a message in peas on the dog cake.

Try mixing up a batch for your next dog party. I bet your human guests will be jealous!
