The cake mix can be adapted for baking in the conventional oven or the microwave, whichever you choose.
Avoid using grocery store cake mix
Dogs have different tastes and tolerances than humans. It is important to use healthy ingredients when designing a recipe for your dog cake.
Avoid using a cake mix made for human consumption. If you want to know why, just pick up a commercial cake mix box and read the ingredients. Typically you will find sugar and chemicals in the ingredient list. The problem is that some of these ingredients may not be safely recommended for pet consumption.

Cake recipe basics
Ingredients in a basic cake mix:
First, decide if you want to make a cake from scratch or if you want to use a dog cake mix that has already been assembled with healthy ingredients for you.
Dog cake mixes are a wonderful product because they provide all of the ingredients you need to make a healthy dog cake you will be proud to serve.
Some of the ingredients in certain recipes can be difficult to find or may require you to purchase more than you need and end up getting wasted
Dog Cake Baking Pans
You will need a cake-baking pan. These come in many shapes, sizes, and materials. We love dog-bone-shaped silicone baking pans. These pans hold their shape, can be used on both conventional and microwave ovens, can be placed in the freezer to create ice molds or ice cubes, and can be washed in the dishwasher. They will not rust or scratch.
