    Just found out today that its my foster dogs birthday on sunday. He will be one year old. It probably won't be long before he is leaving us so would like to make it special and make him a cake. Yes, I know he wont know what day it is lol.

    Any ideas for recipes for doggy cakes. Most that I have found on the tinternet are from American sites and I just don't work in cups - makes me feel like getting my bra off lol.

    BTW he is a labrador if it makes any difference

    What about liver cake or instead of using liver you can put tuna in it or how about making Icy Paws ( wasn't me that called them that :p )


    Icy Paws

    • 2 cartons plain or vanilla yogurt (32 oz each)
    • 1 small can tuna in water (8oz.)
    • 2 tsp. garlic power
    • 24 3 oz. plastic cups (not paper)

    Open yogurt, if they are full to the top use a spoon & scoop out one cup. ( so you can get the tuna in ). Put half of the can of tuna in each yogurt container add the garlic power (1 tsp. in each) & stir thoroughly.

    Use a spoon & scoop the mixture into the cups. Place on a tray & freeze overnight. Makes about 24 treats. ​



    There's probably other things you can put in it that's just the recipe I was given, not tried it though.

    Those icy paws sound great and will defintely be making those when the weather warms up again. I was n't sure about a liver cake. I have made it to be cut into small pieces as treats but wasn't sure if it could be eaten in larger quantities.

    I have fond memories of watching Blue Peter when they brought in the big birthday cakes for their dogs and wanted to be able to do something similar.

    I wouldn't give liver cake in chunks but then the dogs don't seem to mind that they only get tiny bits at a time :rolleyes:, how about making it with tuna just don't use the one with brine as it would be to salty, you could perhaps substitute the liver for some jars of baby food. I ran out of liver and made it with mince :rolleyes:, mince doesn't do to well in the blender :lol:, they still ate it though it came out looking like a meat loaf.
    Last year I did a stall for rescues at our local gala day and I had some liver cake on the table for people to give to their dogs, a woman walked past picked a bit up popped it in her mouth and kept on walking, my daughter and I just stood there with tears rolling down our faces.
