Homemade dog treat icing and frosting recipes are fairly easy to create. Just be sure to check all the ingredient labels prior to purchasing, you want to be sure you are using dog safe products.
Cream Cheese Frosting
Cream Cheese is a very quick and easy product to use to decorate a doggy birthday cake. Simply let the cream cheese warm up to room temperature and mix in any human grade food color. Be sure to refrigerate your cake afterwards, you can freeze any leftovers for future treats. Non fat cream cheese is a good choice for the healthiest option.
Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting
A great way to firm up your cream cheese to pipe letters or decorations on top of your dog's birthday cake is to add a tablespoon or two of all natural peanut butter to the room temperature cream cheese and stir. Be sure to double check the peanut butter ingredients and make sure it does not contain the ingredient xylitol.
Refrigerate your finished cake for up to 3 days and freeze leftovers
Yogurt Honey Peanut Butter Frosting
Non fat, sugar free yogurt also works well as a frosting. To stiffen it up add a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of all natural peanut butter (remember no xylitol).
Be sure to refrigerate this for up to 3 days and freeze any leftovers for future treats.
Tapioca Yogurt Dog Frosting that Hardens
Our favorite yogurt and tapioca dog frosting is Pastries 4 Pets Grain Free Frosting it comes premixed as a powder and all you need is a tablespoon of water and food coloring. It looks just like royal icing and can be piped as a cupcake swirl.
Either human grade food color or all natural dog safe food color powder can be used.
The best part? It dries firm and needs no refrigeration. When I want to ship a dog birthday cake I use Pastries 4 Pets Rockin Hard Frosting it stays hard and looks beautiful when it arrives. No refrigeration needed and it doesn't melt!
