Dog birthday cake decorating ideas

We give you some original birthday cake decorating ideas for dogs.

Use silicone cake pans for unique shapes and designs

Not only can you make dog themed shapes using these pans, but they are easy to clean and will not lose their shape. Just stick them in the dishwasher!

Use them in the oven, microwave or freezer. They are so versatile. Metal pans can only be used in the oven, and you have to be very careful when you wash them or take the cake out so that you do not scratch the metal.

Dog cake frosting

Use Magifrost dog cake frosting by Fido's Frosting. This is the dog cake frosting of choice used by the top dog bakeries. It is dairy-free so that pets with lactose-intolerance will not have stomach upset. Professional pet bakeries enjoy its ease and utility. The frosting will not melt in the heat. This allows them to ship their dog cakes all over the world!

You can pipe decorations and color the frosting any color you choose.

Sprinkles and other cake decorations

Use all natural sprinkles to add color. 

Some bakers like to use colored coconut. Simply soak shredded coconut in colored water.

Others color sesame seeds to use as an alternative to cake sprinkles.
