Hey there, pet pals and cake enthusiasts! It’s that time of the year again—National Cake Day! While most people are prepping their mixing bowls and firing up their ovens for a delightful human cake, have you ever thought about treating your furry friends to their very own cakey goodness?

I’ll be honest; my cat, Finnegan, has been eyeing my cakes for years. He’s got this knack for perching on the countertop, staring at the oven with an expression that says, “Where’s my slice?” Yet, despite his longing looks, I’ve never whipped up a cake specifically for him.

Anyway, let’s dive into the fun part: recipes! Here are some delightful cake ideas for your fur babies:
