How to Bake a Dog Birthday Cake

Last weekend, my Chihuahua Chuy turned five years old. It’s hard to believe how fast time flies! We’ve had Chuy since he was six weeks old, so it’s been amazing to watch him grow! We always celebrate Chuy’s birthday with some kind of cake. I was saddened to find out that Working Dog Bakery, the only true dog friendly bakery in Coastal Virginia has closed their doors. They made an amazing tennis ball cake for us last year!

However, after doing some research I did find a couple of places where you can still order a cake for your dog. Both of these are located in the Hilltop area in Virginia Beach.
