Pet Party Ideas


On the 20th August, the RSPCA holds Cupcake Day, a day to celebrate all creatures great and small and to also raise money for the RSPCA to enable them to continue their work for animal welfare. If you own a pet or two (or more!) and your friends have pets – or even if they don’t, get everyone together to do your bit and to show your pets you love them by hosting a Cupcake Day party.

By logging onto Australia’s #1 Party Shop you can put together a pet-tastic party that everyone will love, with a wide selection of decorations. You can make it totally wild, and keep to an animal theme with jungle or dog cupcake wrappers, animal sugar decorations, candles and cupcake stands. Decorate the room with green and orange streamers and add these fantastic animal print balloons. Or keep the decorations chic and stick to block colours. The way the party will work is your guests make a monetary donation and then enjoy cakes, cupcakes and whatever else you like. So this would also be a great opportunity to set up a Wishing Well or set up a beautiful fish bowl vase for your guests to place their donations.  If you have pets, make sure you include them in the party. Cats are aloof creatures and will probably want to curl up in your linen cupboard instead of socialising and helping you to raise money, but pooches love parties so make sure you have some pet-friendly nosh for them too (yes, even something for the cat in the linen cupboard!)

If you are planning to host a Cupcake Day party, but don’t have pets but will have friends bring their pooches over as guests of honour, you need to be aware that there are certain foods that are unsafe for dogs (and cats). Onion, garlic and chocolate are big no-no’s, very toxic to the cat and dog. Also it has been found that basil will cause tumours in cats and dogs! For a nice gesture to the “Fur Kids”, whilst you are busy baking up a storm for the human guests, you can also make up some pet friendly cakes and cookies for your four-legged guests to enjoy, and they are so easy to make! I found these two recipes from…

BBQ Chicken Flavoured Dog Biscuits:

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup wheat germ

½ cup rye flour

½ cup yellow cornmeal

½ cup barbecue sauce

¼ cup safflower oil

1 cup of chicken broth

Combine whole wheat flour, rolled oats, wheat germ, rye, flour and cornmeal in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine the barbecue sauce, chicken broth and the safflower oil. Pour the barbecue/broth mixture over the flour mix and stir until thoroughly combined. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and knead, roll out to approx. ¼ inch thick and with the dog bone cookie cutter, cut out the shapes and place onto a lightly greased baking sheet.

Place into the oven and bake at 190 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and then serve.

*Make extra cookies to wrap in clear cellophane for the guests to take home in their “Doggy Bags”.

You can also serve up some Doggy Divine cupcakes too! You can choose to bake them in cupcake wrappers or wrapper free (so pooches can just tuck in and you don’t have to peel the wrappers off for them).

Banana and Peanut Butter Dog Cake

½ cup canola oil

½ cup applesauce

¼ cup golden syrup

¼ cup peanut butter

4 eggs

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

2 ripe bananas, mashed

In a bowl, mix the oil, applesauce and golden syrup. Add the peanut butter and mix until combined. Add eggs, one at a time. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Using the electric mixer, on law setting add the dry ingredients to the bowl of syrup, oil, eggs and peanut butter. Once combined, add the mashed bananas and fold them into the mixture. Using an ice cream scoop, ball the mixture into individual cupcake cases in a cupcake tray. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. At five minutes, rotate the pan to ensure even bake throughout the cupcakes. Place on wire rack to cool. If you want to ice them, use a cream cheese icing.

The pups will love tucking into the barbecue chicken cookies and banana and peanut butter cupcakes and your guests will be touched at the gesture too! So get your bake on with Australia’s #1 Party Shop and help raise money for RSPCA’s Cup Cake Day, 20th August.
