If you love getting your cat up off the floor and whipping up sweet homemade treats, a large cat birthday cake is a perfect treat for your beloved pet on their big day. Whether you plan to buy one from the grocery store or make one yourself, here are some quick tips to help you create the perfect cat birthday cake. It should only take about a half an hour or so to make a nice one for your feline friend.
You'll need a box or two of cake mix, about one and a half cups of vegetable oil, cat nip, small piece of cake frosting, and a small assortment of treats your kitties will enjoy. For the cake, you can use orange juice and canned fruit for the most yummy kitty treats, but you can also use a variety of different treats that cats love to eat, including almonds, grapes, and small pieces of cheese. Just remember that kitties are not the same as dogs, and you need to be careful how much you add to the mix.
You'll also need about three-eighths of a cup of sweet potato paste, catnip seeds, and two cups of dry rice cereal. Start out by putting the tuna in a zip lock bag and freeze it. Once it is frozen, remove it from the package and chop it up into small pieces. Tuna is very high in protein so this is a great addition to any cat birthday cake. Then, mix the remaining ingredients together and set aside.
When it comes time to mix the wet ingredients into the dry, begin by taking the tuna and mixing it until the chunks are the size of peas. Next, you'll want to add in the cat food, catnip seeds, and rice cereal. At this point, you can vary the ingredients based upon your taste, but for an additional flavor boost, drizzle on some more of the tuna and catnip mix.
It's time to bake your cat birthday cake! Take your hand and place it directly over the preheated oven. Set the oven to the highest temperature you can handle. Before you place the cupcakes into the oven, make sure that the cupcake liners have fully defrosted. If not, simply re-bake them according to the directions on the cupcake liner.
After the cupcakes are cooked and cooled off, you will want to check price at your local pet store or health food store. You're probably going to find the most cost effective cat birthday cake recipe at your local pet store or at one of your local health food stores. The reason why you're able to find these cheaper recipes is because there are typically more people selling these products. As a result, the profit margin can often be much higher.
For the actual recipe, all you need are: cat-safe ingredients, pre-made cupcakes, non-stick cooking spray, and non-stick cooking eggs. Once you have gathered these items, you will be ready to create your very own cat-safe cakes. All you need to do is combine the cat-safe ingredients (frosting and cat-safe baking spray) into a container. Next, you will want to grab a box of non-stick cooking eggs, a cup of oatmeal, and a pack of your favorite flavorings.
Next, take your prepared cake and spray it with non-stick cooking spray before putting it in the oven. Allow the cake to preheat up for a few minutes. When it does, you will then gently slide in your cat-shaped cupcake liner into the oven. If the cake is in ajar, you will want to put some water inside to keep the cake from drying out.
