The Top Dog Birthday Cakes in Maryland

"Hey DOCC, where can I find a dog cake for my dog's birthday?"


Every dog owner knows just how important a dog’s birthday or gotcha day is. And, because no celebration is complete without a cake, it only makes sense that you need a cake for your dog. We got our paws on not one, not two, but eight different dog birthday cakes and treats to personally taste test (yes, we’re serious...and crazy). As Maryland's dog party experts, dog owners come to us on a weekly basis asking for dog cake and dog bakery recommendations. Here are our honest thoughts on eight different birthday cakes and treats for dogs so that you can plan THE best celebration for your furry best friend.

Get your spoons ready pet parents because The Pastry Pup isn't just for dogs! As a professional pastry chef in Baltimore, Kelsey wanted to create delicious treats for dogs but also allow the owners to enjoy it too. Yes, you heard us... owners are encouraged to eat these cakes. Kelsey spent a lot of time thinking about the flavor combinations in her cakes as well as focusing on using healthy ingredients with a limited amount of sugar -- think Peanut Butter Carob and Pumpkin Coconut Cake with Coconut Buttercream. Choose from a variety of cake flavors, dog donuts, adorb birthday bones, and other dog treats at The Pastry Pup's website.
