How to Decorate a Birthday Cake
For Your Dog

Dog cake decorating ideas can be very simple or they can be quite complicated and difficult. But all dog cake decorating begins with a simple dog treat icing or frosting.

A dog treat frosting that hardens, gives you more decorating options, while a soft dog treat icing is easier for an older dog to eat.

When you have your dog icing on the cake, you can embellish the cake in many ways. One way is to simply use cake toppers that you purchase, like these DOG Cake Toppers or these Puppy Dog Cupcake Picks. .

Icing the cake is the first step in decorating a dog cake.

Icing the dog cake is the first step.


Using an icing spatula makes the job easy.

Simply spread the dog icing on the cake. This will be your base layer. The decorating comes next, and it can be quite simple, or as complex as you’d like it to be…

Put the dog frosting on your cake or cupcakes. Then apply the swirls or lines to your icing. Use a contrasting color to make it stand out.

You use a plastic bag filled with icing (with the corner removed) to make the lines. Twist the bag to remove the air and then squeeze the bag to extract the icing. It’s a little tricky to get an even flow of frosting, and I prefer to use the Wilton icing decorating set with the decorative heads.

You can use icing swirls or decorative lines on both dog cakes and dog cookies.

Once again, for this dog birthday cake decorating idea, you will need to have a base of dog treat icing. The rest is easy. Simply sprinkle something on top. You could use colored sprinkles, bacon bits, chopped peanuts or even mini sugarless unsweetened carob chips.

Other ways of dog birthday cake decorating include colored frosting and using cute little inedible cake toppers. And don’t forget to use dog birthday candles.

Use your imagination and you’ll be able to come up with more fun dog cake decorating ideas! Enjoy…
