Birthday Cake for Dogs

A birthday isn't a birthday without a cake, and this turkey bacon concoction is just what Fido wished for.


  • 8 ounces turkey bacon
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • Mini carrots
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Blueberries


  1. Place the turkey bacon in a food processor and pulse until finely ground.
  2. Pour the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the bacon, coconut milk, oil and eggs and mix until well combined.
  3. Pour the mixture into a greased baking sheet and smooth the surface. Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool completely on the baking sheet.
  4. Slice the cake into rounds. You can create as big a cake with as many layers as you like! Any leftover cake can be chopped into small pieces and used as treats.
  5. Stack the layers on top of each other, spreading 1 tablespoon of cream cheese between each layer. Then coat the entire cake in a thin layer of cream cheese. Slice the mini carrots into thin sticks - we'll use these as candles! Create as many carrot candles as you need for your dog's birthday.
  6. Decorate the cake with the candles, strawberries and blueberries. Slice your dog a small slice and enjoy!
