[New Product] PetCakes Kit
Every day with our pets is worth celebrating. The amount of love and fun they bring to our lives is immeasurable. Of course, it’s not a celebration without cake! Unfortunately, baked desserts for humans are unhealthy for pets. Even a small piece of a sugar-laden birthday cake can have a serious impact on your pet’s health, and anything chocolate is always dangerous for dogs. With PetCakes, you can include your pet in every special occasion with his or her own nutritious, delicious pet-sized cake in flavors dogs and cats love!
Is it safe to feed my pet sugary baked treats?
Sugary treats like baked goods, candy and gum should not be fed to dogs or cats. Sugar can result in hyperactivity, obesity, dental problems, and diabetes. Even sugar-free versions of these treats can be poison to pets. Sugar substitutes such as Xylitol can be deadly. Baked goods also often contain chocolate, extracts that contain alcohol, and other ingredients such as artificial colors and preservatives that can be harmful to your pet’s health. While we may think, “A little bit can’t hurt!”, we often fail to take into consideration that a little bit to us can have a big impact on the smaller bodies of our pets.
Some of the most dangerous baking ingredients include:
- Baker’s chocolate
- Alcohol (or alcohol-based extracts such as vanilla and almond)
- Yeast dough
Rather than cutting off a little slice of birthday cake to share with your pet, be sure to have a healthy treat for your dog or cat ready when the candles get blown out. This way, pets will feel included in the celebration without a dangerous indulgence.

PetCakes make it easier than ever to give your pet a fresh-baked treat! PetCakes are the first microwavable pet treat that you can mix and bake in just a few minutes. It’s so simple, even children can join in the fun of creating a nutritious confection for their favorite pet.
PetCakes for Dogs come in a delicious Carob flavor that is similar to chocolate, yet completely safe for dogs. Each kit comes with a silicone baking pan, two packs of baking mix to make a total of six treats, and easy-to-follow instructions.
Simply spray the baking pan with non-stick cooking spray, combine the baking mix with 1/3 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, pour the mixture into the pan and put it in the microwave on high for 2½ minutes.
After the PetCakes have cooled, you can decorate them with creamy peanut butter or cream cheese for an extra-special touch!
PetCakes for Cats come in a delightful Cheese Nip flavor. Each kit includes a silicone baking pan, two packs of baking mix to make a total of six treats, and easy-to-follow instructions.
PetCakes for Cats are made exactly the same way as PetCakes for Dogs, with the substitution of a tablespoon of canned tuna in place of peanut butter. You may choose to decorate PetCakes for Cats with anchovy paste as a fishy frosting cats love.
Because they’re so quick and easy to make, there’s no need to wait for your pet’s birthday. Bake up a batch of PetCakes any time to celebrate the special love you have for your pet. PetCakes Refills are also available.
