Puppy Party Cake

Looking for a fun family recipe – for Fido? Whether it's a birthday or brave vet visit, this special occasion cake is a sweet dog treat.

The dog days of summer are here. So how 'bout something special for your pup? After all, Fido can safely enjoy a taste of stuff your kids love, too – like peanut butter and bananas. Those are ingredients you'll find in this yummy Dog Cake, a recipe fresh from the Bow Wow Bake Shoppe in Grosse Pointe Woods.

"I go for content," says owner Lisa Bardy. "You want your treats to taste good" – and of course, she adds, be healthy for Spot. Her store's menu is a balance of both. Like the Frosted Bone Cookies, with a yogurt coating. And Brownie Bites, which have bananas and honey. "Just like we would eat," Bardy says, "minus the sweet, sweet stuff." In fact, they please people palettes, too: Bow Wow Frosted Donuts, topped with a chocolate-alternative carob-candy, are a customer fave!

It meets all the key standards, from the Association of American Feed Control Officials – to Nala, Bardy's 1-year-old Carolina-mix rescue dog. She even varies up the flour (wheat, flour, brown-rice) to accommodate for allergies. All the ingredients are listed right on the bag.

As with humans, moderation is key. Wanna whip up this sweet treat for your furry friend? Get Bardy's Dog Cake recipe here!
