Food and Cake Ideas for a Paw-fect Puppy Party


Paw-fect food for your Puppy Party is a snap with these food and cake ideas:

To make an extra-easy Bone Cake you will need one 9″ X 13″ cake and four large cupcakes (or bakery over-sized muffins.)  After baking and cooling the rectangular cake, cut it in half lengthwise, and discard one of the halves. Add two cupcakes to each end of the rectangle. Frost the entire cake with white or chocolate frosting.

As an alternative, bake a yummy Pupcake right in a new large metal dog dish.  Frost it with waves of chocolate frosting or Chocolate Cool Whip, and add candles to top it off!  The kids will be tickled at the sight of this simple cake!

If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by one boxed mix, we recommend that you simply bake extra cupcakes or an extra rectangular cake.  All can be frosted in matching frosting, and cut and served behind the scenes.


Your food will be paw-fect if you serve sandwiches cut into bone shapes with cookie cutters.  Bake and frost bone-shaped sugar cookies.  J-ello® Jigglers are also a perennial party favorite with young children.

Serve snacks in Plastic Dog Bowls – animal crackers, mini pretzels, M & M’s, grapes, raisins, or cheese balls.

Use Plastic Dog Bowls to serve cake and ice cream.  To make the party puppy perfect, let the kids eat the cake and ice cream without a spoon or fork…just the way their puppy pals would dig in!  Make sure you have your camera ready for this party highlight.

Serve beverages in our adorable Puppy Party beverage cups or custom stadium cups.

As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 will eat very little, and the waste can be disheartening.  Schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal…and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other healthy munchies such as apple wedges, pretzels, raisins, and grapes (cut in half for toddlers).
