This dog cake includes lots of things you’d expect – peanut butter, applesauce, honey, etc. – but what we love about it is the special ingredient on top: shredded cheese. That’s right, shredded cheddar is used as a decoration on top. This is the stuff dogs dream of.

When I first found out the number of calories in (human) carrot cake, I was shocked. After all, weren’t carrots supposed to be healthy? They are, but all the butter and sugar negated the health benefits. Lucky for us, this dog birthday cake feature lots of the healthy orange vegetable and none of the naughty ingredients.
