Here is a great idea for a dog themed birthday cake. This cake would also work very well for a Webkinz themed birthday party.
It’s a beautiful cake, but it would be fairly easy to make. You can use any color of icing. Make the “dog bones” with a sugar cookie recipe (see below) and a Dog Bone Cookie Cutter. Ice the extra dog bone cookies to serve as party snacks. Purchase heart candies, or make your own with fondant icing.
Purchase new dog dishes to hold your party snacks.
Dog (or puppy) chow is a great party snack for a dog themed birthday party.
Puppy Chow Recipe

- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
Put the Chex cereal in large bowl. Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a double boiler, or on low heat. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour the mixture over the Chex cereal and mix until coated. Put the mixture into a large plastic bag with powdered sugar and shake well to coat the mixture with the powdered sugar.
