Let’s talk birthday cake for cats.
Food is the focal point of all matters for Jelly, just like his momma. I knew nothing would make this birthday boy happier than getting to eat all the human foods he usually steals off our plates.
I googled ‘birthday cake for cats’ and searched around for a friendly feline cake recipe. What I found was much more than that, I found the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Those cats are so stinkin’ lucky! I actually teared up when I read the post because
I am a crazy cat lady I was so happy to finally have my own cat to spoil!
Jelly waited patiently while I baked for him.
You can refer to the original inspiration and recipe for full instructions, here is a quick how-to.
Birthday Cake for Cats
Yield: 2 small cakes | Prep time: 20 minutes
1/2 can of tuna
2 tbs flour
2 tbs shredded or grated cheese
defrosted shrimp, to garnish
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Break up tuna in a medium bowl. Lightly beat egg in a separate bowl, then combine with tuna. Add in flour and cheese. Stir to combine. Scoop batter into cupcake tin or silicone cups. Bake for 15 minutes.
These “cakes” are actually more like muffins. They were pretty dry, so I trimmed the top off a little so that Jelly could tear it up more easily.
I think the shrimp garnish is most essential. It was the first thing he went after.
The presentation on a plate was really just for the blog. I barely got photos of his reaction once I put it down on the table. He kept grabbing it and running off to the corner – as he usually does when he is snatching things from the kitchen. It was funny that the one time he could sit on the table and enjoy it, he wouldn’t.
How will I top this next year?
