Need a special homemade doggie treat? Make your furry friend an easy dog birthday cake to celebrate! Yes, you can have a piece too! 🙂
Last week was my big guy’s birthday! Happy 8th Birthday Bronx!
Like many of you, our pets are truly part of our family so just like we would do for anyone else, we had a little birthday celebration complete with his very own dog birthday cake 🙂
This peanut butter carrot cake is safe for your dogs as the main ingredients are carrots and peanut butter…two of our favorite treats to give our furry friends. I simply spread peanut butter on the top and decorated with some dog food.
It was so easy and inexpensive to make and both of our dogs loved it! They definitely learned a new word, “cake,” over the few days that it lasted!

While the recipe is completely edible and safe for humans, you might want to skip the dog food decorations if you plan on enjoying a piece of cake with your pooch.
Or you can be like my daughter and just eat around the dog food. I found her licking the peanut butter off the top and she said, “What? I stayed away from the dog food.”
Dog Birthday Cake Recipe
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup peanut butter + additional for icing
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 egg
Mix the flour and baking soda together then add peanut butter, vegetable oil, shredded carrots, vanilla, honey, and egg. I simply combined them using a wooden spoon...no mixer necessary.
Pour into a greased 8" round cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cool and spread additional peanut butter on the top for icing.
I only had a 9" round cake pan so I used that. It won't need to bake quite as long since you'll have a thinner layer so check around 20 minutes to see if it's baked. When a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean you're good to go.
