Dog treat icing
I have been doing trials for dog biscuits and it is picking up pace wherein our clients have started ordering them. However, I wish to make it more attractive with icing them...including muffins and cakes. Hung yoghurt beaten with some creme cheese is what I have tried and it went down well with the dogs...however I am looking at more icing options which can be stored for at least a week. Also, in case of biscuits, I am not sure if the same can be used since I need something that's stiff and sticks to the biscuits well at the same time retains the colors.
I would be very grateful if you can share more ideas and tips with me mainly looking at the climatic conditions in Mumbai, India which may help in having a greater shelf life for my bakery items.
Thanks and Regards,

Bhavini, thank you for your question. We suggest you take a look at K9Cakery.com's Fido's Frosting brand of dog treat icing and dog treat frosting. This product was developed specifically for dog treats. It is all natural yogurt based, sugar free, and will not melt so you can ship your treats anywhere. It dries hard and takes color well. It does not require refrigeration.
Use the royal icing on biscuits for coating, dipping or drizzling. The frosting is best for spreading on cakes, or for piping from a pastry bag.
We refer you to two YouTube channels: "FrostingFran" and "TheFrostingGuy" where you can find videos showing how to use this yogurt icing and finished products.
By the way, there is a dog bakery in India called The Spoilt Brat. We think they are in Mumbai!
