Baking a cake for your dog’s birthday is the best way to treat him on his special day! This four-legged friend-approved cake is full of healthy ingredients like chicken, carrots, and Greek yogurt! Rest assured, it will love every bite! I love making treats for my dog at home because I know exactly what’s in them! No preservatives, just healthy ingredients!

No-bake two-layer chicken and vegetable dog cake
This cake is extremely healthy. The best thing about this dog cake recipe is that it is made with all-natural ingredients. No fillers here! Only the best for your furry friend! You can replace the broccoli with fresh or frozen green beans, for example, and the sweet potatoes in this recipe with carrots. Cut the ingredients in half for a smaller cake, or double them to feed more cute and hungry dogs. You’ll need to use a larger or smaller pan and adjust the amount of yogurt for the frosting. The cake pictured above uses sliced chicken sausage and a chewy bone, but you can use whatever your pup prefers. Top the cake with your favorite treats for the ultimate doggie dessert!
