The Best 5 Puppy Frosting Recipes That Needs No Refrigeration

If you are a pet lover like me you may have thrown your dog a birthday party at some point. There is a big problem with this because, of course, dogs cannot eat a cake like the ones we make for ourselves. Sugar, in general, is not good for them, and we definitely want them to be able to safely enjoy whatever we make them with love. Today we have a few options for a dog frosting recipe that needs no refrigeration for you! It is easy to make and your pet will absolutely love it – and will look so cute eating it!

We recommend you use this frosting recipe together with this specially made cake mix by Puppy Cake. Our pets love it and it is super easy to make – and pet safe, of course! You will be able to whip up a special treat for your puppies in no time. It is available in many different flavors for them to try! You can also use this recipe on top of homemade (or store-bought) treats as well!

Let’s get started!

We have taken ideas from different sources for this article, including Entirely Pets, Cuteness, and Love from the Oven. Be sure to check them out too!

There are three different options when it comes to the base of your frosting: cottage cheese, cream cheese, or Greek yogurt when it comes to proteins, or some kind of fruit or vegetable like banana, avocado, or potatoes. We recommend low-fat options. These will serve as a medium to add flavoring, not that dogs need an excuse to eat it.

Dog Frosting: Let’s get started!

Creme Cheese Dog Safe Frosting

It will take you just 5 minutes to whip up. The recipe makes ½ a cup, enough for one layer, or covering the top of a medium-sized cake. This type of frosting will stay soft, like regular buttercream.

Let the creme cheese reach room temperature and mix in the rest of the ingredients until smooth and creamy. If you find it hard to mix, pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.

Cottage Cheese Dog Frosting

Follow the steps for the creme cheese frosting, but substitute the creme cheese for cottage cheese. Keep in mind that it will have a grainier texture, but it will still taste incredible for the pups! Our dogs favorite is peanut butter. Use 2 to 4 ounces of it together with 4 ounces of the cheese.

Greek Yoghurt Icing For Dog Treats

Just like the last two options, this will only take a couple of minutes to make. The recipe makes ½ a cup, enough for one layer, or covering the top of a medium-sized cake. 

You can choose to use the creme cheese recipe but just exchange the creme cheese for the same amount of plain greek yogurt, but it will be a bit runny. If you want a soft consistency, you can add a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up. If not, check out this recipe that will make a frosting that hardens.

Ingredients

How To Make This Dog-Friendly Frosting

Step 1

Combine yogurt and cornstarch, whisking until the mixture is smooth

Step 2

Add a bit of milk at a time, until you reach the desired consistency for piping.

Step 3

Carob Avocado Frosting for Puppies

Also a very fast and easy recipe, but it requires more ingredients. It yields 1 cup. Just like the creme cheese frosting, it will stay soft.

Carob powder is a chocolate substitute. It tastes amazing and is pet-friendly, unlike chocolate. Please, never give your pet chocolate! 

Ingredients

Mix together until everything is smooth. If it is too soft, add a bit of cornstarch. If it is too thick, some water. This depends on the weather where you are making it and the humidity in the air.

Mashed Potato Frosting for Puppies

Very easy to make, yielding 1 cup of frosting. It will also stay soft after piping. Although it may sound off to make frosting out of potatoes, remember that it is for your pups and their tastebuds are different from ours! At least my dog will eat almost whatever.

Ingredients

Step 1

Boil the potatoes until very soft. Drain them and mash them until smooth.
