Hard Icing Recipe

This simple recipe comes from the Cake Decorist and is perfect for dog cookies and cakes.

I like using hard frosting the most because it creates a nice smooth finish for presentation. To make, you’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, rice or potato flour
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Dog Friendly food coloring (optional)

Simply mix the ingredients into a bowl using a whisk, and you have a sweet hard icing recipe for all your pup’s cakes!

Keep in mind if you want different colors, you should divide the batter and use different food coloring for each bowl.

Since this is hard icing, you’ll want to use it directly after making it for the best results.

Cream Cheese Frosting 

This easy 2-ingredient recipe is the perfect soft frosting to whip up and put on pupcakes and other goodies.

I used this recipe when I made pupcakes for Archie & Cali’s birthday party last year. They loved it! This recipe calls for:

  •  1 (4 oz.) package low fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon honey,pumpkin, or maple syrup
  • Dog Friendly food coloring (optional)

Let the cream cheese sit until it reaches room temperature, then mix in the honey/pumpkin/syrup.

Bam! You have a simple tasty frosting in less than 5 minutes.

I like to use a piping bag to get a professional look when decorating, but a spoon will work just fine! 


I hope you found these dog-friendly frosting recipes helpful and that you get to use them in your next baking project!

Even if you’re not the best cake decorator, your dog is guaranteed to love anything you make for them no matter what it looks like.
