Easy DIY Dog Birthday Cake and Cake Stand!


Hallelujah, Spring is here!  After about 500 days (only a slight exaggeration) of nothing but rain here in Seattle, Sebastian and I were more than ready to get outside for some fun colorful pictures.  Here's our latest DIY and it's a super easy no-skills-needed kind of project.

I thought of this idea when Starbucks surprised us with a "Puppuccino" one day.  I'd never heard of it. Sebastian was hanging out the window as we were going through the drive-thru and the Barista asked him if he wanted one.  I said, "a what?" in my protective motherly voice.  He then brought us a cup filled with whipped cream and Sebastian went nuts for it.  Turns out the Puppuccino is a real thing and it's part of Starbucks secret menu.


Just these two pieces complete your cake stand.  I was so excited when I found this candle holder because I knew it would be perfect.  It's from Hobby Lobby and they have so many different heights (so pick one according to the size of your pet).  The clear bowl is just a small cat dish and it fit on top of the candle holder perfectly.  Score!


With just 3 ingredients, I was able to create a masterpiece I'm pretty sure no dog would turn down.  Sebastian is an Instinct boy so we stuck with his fabulous grain-free Instinct treats we already had at home.


And as you build the cake, 


Be prepared to have onlookers too (and we are not talking about just humans).  If you like Sebastian's hat, you can buy it here in our shop!


Now that looks like something to bark about.


I should also mention the Starbucks Puppuccino is ONLY whipped cream and served in a cup.  Yawn.


Sebastian says we just one-upped Starbucks.


Hmmmm, he might be skipping dinner tonight.


If you are having a birthday party, you'll definitely need to have the appropriate props for your photos.  Get Sebastian's entire birthday suit look here in our shop handmade by me!






XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

Thank you for this post. We all know that dogs age a lot faster than we are, that is why every milestone is very important and memorable. We now live in an age where we appreciate more about life, and give something more than we usually do. See more here http://dogsaholic.com/food_treats/how-to-make-a-cake-for-a-dog.html
