Petcakes Birthday Kit Reviewed

 Every pup deserves a Birthday cake! This year I decided to try the Pupcakes Birthday Kit to make a dog bone shaped cake for the big day. So easy for those who don't cook, do not like to cook or are in a time crunch. A few minutes in the microwave and a fun bone shaped cake is made with no muss, no fuss.

What's In The Box?

The petcakes are so easy to prepare!  The Petcakes box contains 1 package of cake mix, 1 package of frosting mix, 1 bone shaped pan and a Birthday Candle.

All you need is water plus a small amount of greek yogurt or peanut butter to make the cake. 

The frosting requires a small amount of water and yogurt. Honey is optional. 

Microwave is required.

Anyone Can Make This Pupcake

A few common ingredients and a microwave is all that is required to make this Pupcake in under an hour (and most of the hour is waiting for the cake to cool so it can be frosted.)

Or skip the frosting and the cake is ready to go after cooling. The directions state 15 minutes cool time after removing from microwave. I found a half hour is a better timeframe to ensure the cake is cooled.

Decorate the Pupcake

Keeping in the edible theme of cake decorations I used dog food nuggets as a cake decoration. The cake can be kept in the refrigerator up to a week after it is made. The ingredients are dog friendly: Organic oat flour, brown rice flour, flax seed powder, carob, cinnamon.

The cake was a win for my furball. (Admittedly this furball is not a picky eater)

Reusable Cake Pan

The dog bone shaped cake pan is reusable so save it for the next healthy Pupcake for your favorite furball or pass it along to a friend for their birthday pup!

  1. What an adorable way to treat your pup on his or her special day! Using kibble “polka dots” as a decoration was smart, and obviously your sweet furball enjoyed every aspect of this special Pupcake.

  2. What a great treat for your furball on a birthday or any day. Pupcake sounds like a sure winner to keep you dog happy.I'm sure you furball appreciates the treat.

  3. Even our pups deserve a special birthday treat. What a clever idea. I'll have to tell my bro & sis-in-law about this for my fur-niece Abbi.

  4. How adorable! I love this idea and I'm sure Merlin would greatly appreciate the special treat. I used to buy him a special birthday treat from a doggie bakery, but making one for him would be a lot better.

  5. That is so sweet. I'm sure your pup was having one heck of a great birthday! Sounds like a lot of fun for the whole family, especially the kids to make for their favorite fur baby!

  6. Are these ever cute! The dog lovers in my family would get a kick out of these - In fact, there are two dogs in our house now, so I could give this one a try too.

  7. How wonderful! I'm pretty sure my fur kids are going to want this for their next birthday celebrations. Of course, why wait, they say. Every day with loving puppers is a day worthy of a special treat like this. What a great gift for fur parents, too.
