Dog Bone Cake Pan

A dog bone cake pan is one of the most popular silicone cake pans that every dog bakery business should have on the shelf. At least one! 

We highly recommend the silicone pans due to their ease of use and great versatility. When choosing a cake pan, we encourage you to consider the material it is made of, the shape, and the size that is right for you.

Dog Bone Cake Pan Material

Dog bone cake pans, or any cake pans for that matter, are made from metal, foil, silicone, and even plastic.  Each has its own purpose and thus, it's own pros and cons.  Let's explore.


Pros: are strong and sturdy. They distribute heat well, hold their shape, can be used over and over and last a long time.

Cons: Metal pans can be expensive. They cannot be used in a microwave oven and are for use in the freezer.  If not cared for properly, they can even rust (if metal) or pit (if aluminum). Using the wrong utensils will cause the metal to scratch off and leave imperfections in the cake.

Silicone cake pans

Silicone cake pans are some of the newest entries on the market. These are preferred by some for their versatility.  Not only are they used for baking, but they can be placed in the freezer and create unique products like ice sculptures!

Pros: Silicone can be used in the oven, the microwave and the freezer. It will never rust, will last a very long time and because of its flexibility, it is easy to remove its contents. 

Silicone cake pans are easy to use and versatile. Made from high grade, FDA approved silicone, they can be used in the freezer, microwave, regular oven and washed in the dishwasher.

Cakes and dog biscuits will easily pop out without much effort to grease the pan. Depending on the mix, you may not even have to grease it.

Cons: Silicone pans may cost a little more than their metal cousins. Due to their flexibility, they need to be placed on a sturdy base like a cookie sheet when in use. However, these are not necessarily cons when you consider how much effort they save! People with arthritis or joint pain will find it easier to make shapes - just press the dough into the molds. No rolling or cutting!


Plastic cake pans are made with a special plastic that can withstand temperatures up to 375 degrees. 

Pros: Plastic pans are less expensive than metal or silicone, they don't bend like metal can but are almost as rigid as metal. They can be used in the oven or microwave. They are recyclable.

Cons: Plastic pans can be used more times than foil but do not last as long as metal or silicone pans. They need to be placed on a sturdy surface when in use.

Bone shaped cake pan sizes

This silicone baking pan comes in various sizes so you can adjust for the size of the dog. As you can see, with the myriad of options available, these silicone cake pans are a good standard in the industry.

Large bone shaped cake pan

This silicone cake pan is 13" x 10". It makes a slightly larger dog cake than the standard size pan, but is  recommended if you are hosting a large party with large dogs.

It is also a great choice if you plan to celebrate an opening of a new pet business and want to serve a dog themed cake to your human guests.

Standard bone shaped cake pan

The silicone cake pan shown above is 10" x 7", which yields a standard size dog cake.

Small bone shaped dog pan

This popular silicone cake pan yields 18 small bone shaped dog treats. Why spend your time and effort rolling and cutting when you can easily load up the little wells and produce 18 dog biscuits at once. They will pop right out and the pan is easy to clean.

It can be used as a candy mold as well.

If you are opening a new business catering to dogs, place one or two homemade dog biscuits into a plastic bag, place your card inside, tie it up with dog-themed ribbon and you have a promotional piece.
