I found a cake recipe on the internet and substituted a few ingredients to make it healthy for my Mini Schnauzers. The brown rice flour, oat flour and carob powder can be found at most health food stores. Toby, Puma and Molly LOVED the cake ... and the icing!!!!!

How To Make party cake (for dogs or humans)

  • 1
    CAKE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a 6" baking pan as a guide, cut 3 discs from wax paper, and place in bottom of three (3) 6" baking pans. Spray bottom and sides of pans with a non-stick flour spray.
  • 2
    In a food processor, add peeled and sliced bananas, and process until creamy.
  • 3
    In mixing bowl, cream together bananas and butter until nice and smooth.
  • 4
    Using lowest speed on mixer, add eggs and water, and thoroughly blend.
  • 5
    On lowest mixer speed, add dry ingredients, one cup at a time, and blend. Then, increase speed and beat for 2 minutes.
  • 6
    Distribute batter evenly among the 3 baking pans.
  • 7
    Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until done. DO NOT OVER-BAKE!!!
  • 8
    Place pans on wire rack and cool for 5 minutes, then remove from pans and place back on the wire racks to completely cool.
  • 9
    FROSTING: Using a food processor, add peeled and sliced bananas and process until it reaches a creamy consistency.
  • 10
    Using a small bowl, add all ingredients and blend until smooth. If the icing seems a little too thin, add a little rice flour. (The icing will thicken a little as it sits for a few minutes.)
  • 11
    ASSEMBLE THE CAKE: Spread a little of the frosting on the plate, then place the 1st layer top side down, and spread the top with icing.
  • 12
    Place the 2nd cake layer, also top side down, and frost the top.
  • 13
    Place the 3rd cake layer top side up. Countersink a small dowel (or wooden skewer) in center of cake to prevent shifting). Ice the top, then the sides of cake, and decorate as desired.

    I used frosting for the writing that I had in the freezer, and unfortunately, it "ran" just a little!!! ):
