Our pets are like family to us and the boys love giving them treats every now and then. When I heard about PetCakes from Lucky Paws, I couldn’t wait to try them! These yummy treats are made of all natural and organic ingredients and are cooked right in your own home using your microwave! How neat is that? I received the Original Carob PetCakes kit for dogs and the Cheese Nip PetCakes kit for cats as well as their frosting mix and refill packs.
First of all, I have to say my kids LOVED these kits! They thought it was so cool that we were making treats for our pets. We started out with the dog kit.
They were super easy to make. We just combined the mix with some water and a Tablespoon of peanut butter. I sprayed the dog bone pan with cooking spray and then poured the batter in. We popped them in the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes and voila…fresh doggie treats!
We let them cool for about 10 minutes but I think we needed to let them cool a little longer because we had a little trouble getting the first “bone” out. I put the tray into the freezer for a few minutes and the other two came out just fine. We decided to make the yogurt flavored frosting as well. As you have to do is add water and mix.
The frosting tends to thicken pretty quickly so make sure your treats are ready to frost before you mix it. The kids couldn’t wait to give them to the dogs.
They were a huge hit! Sammie and Maggie quickly ate them up and licked up any remaining crumbs on the floor!
We made the cat treats next. The only difference was that you add a Tablespoon of tuna instead of the peanut butter.
Our cat Daisy loved the treats just as much as the dogs did. We really enjoyed making these as a family and I liked knowing that our pets were getting fresh, quality treats! The PetCake mixes contain no wheat, corn or soy. I also like that you can get creative with them. You can feed the treats to your pet plain, with the frosting or create your own recipes. The website suggests slicing one of the treats in half length wise and spreading some peanut butter on one half and unsweetened applesauce on the other to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Clean up was easy too since the PetCake pans are dishwasher safe.
The PetCakes kits sell for $10 each and include a pan and 2 mix packs. A box of 3 frosting mixes or 3 refill PetCakes mixes is $8. If you’re looking for a fun, healthy treat for your furry friend, I’d definitely recommend PetCakes! You can order them online or click HERE to find a retailer near you! Three lucky readers will each receive their choice of either a PetCakes kit for dogs or a PetCajes Kit for cats!
