Frequently Asked Questions

Most of your questions have already been answered here.
If your question is not listed below, text 310-944-3232 for a fast response.

Do you have cakes and treats available same-day?

Yes! We receive a lot of last minute requests. We usually have most items available, but why risk it? Reserve your cake now so it can be personalized and ready for you in advance.

Every effort will be made to accommodate your request. You will receive a text confirming availability once your order has been processed. If the timeslot you requested is not available, we will provide alternate options.

Can I choose specific color decorations for the cake and treats?

Yes! The writing on the cake can be almost any color. If you don’t specify a color, we will use our best judgment to choose one for you. Blue and pink are requested most often. Red, orange, yellow, turquoise, green, and purple are also in high demand. For a custom color, let us know far in advance so we can make and test a specific color.

Treats come in assorted colors and toppings. Decorations may vary from the combinations shown. If you request boy/girl/neutral/specific color combinations, we will select colors that are closest to what you requested from the assortment that is currently available.

Can I order ahead of time? Can I request a specific date and time?

Yes, please! The more lead time you provide, the better we can accommodate your request. Thank you for being organized and planning your celebrations in advance.

Specify a date and time when adding a cake to the cart. If your order does not include a cake, you may enter the date of the party in the notes section at checkout.

Every effort will be made to accommodate your request. You will receive a text confirming availability once your order has been processed. If the timeslot you requested is not available, we will provide alternate options that meet the needs of your schedule.

Will my cake be made fresh?

Yes! All the cakes are freshly made. We are working round the clock to keep up with demand and doing everything we can to keep them in stock. Order now so we don’t run out!

What size cake should I get?

What size dog do you have? Get that size cake or larger:
One small dog = a small cake, fits Name + Age or HBD + Name
One medium dog = a medium cake, fits Happy Birthday + Name
One large dog = a large cake, fits Happy Birthday + Name or a custom phrase!

Are there multiple dogs at the party? Get a bigger size cake and plenty of treats for everyone.

Want more writing on the cake? Add a colorful cake topper that says “Happy Birthday” or upgrade to a bigger size cake.

Cake sizes and samples are shown here.

What are the most popular treats?

The peanut butter cups, pizza bones, and cupcakes are the most popular treats. (Don’t make your dogs wait for their birthdays for special treats.) Get extras for later!

What makes these treats so popular? The pizza bones are thin and brittle, making them easy to break up into smaller portions to accommodate any size dogs. Plus, they have bacon. Yum! The peanut butter cups and cupcakes are soft and moist, and easy to pull apart, slice, or chew, even for tiny dogs or senior dogs missing teeth. These bite size treats are ideal for dogs of all sizes and ages.

How long will everything stay fresh?

Cakes are frozen when you receive them and will thaw within 15 to 30 minutes. You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to two months.

Most treats will stay fresh in their packaging for up to two months at room temperature. You can optionally refrigerate or freeze them to extend their shelf life up to six months.

Do you offer quantity discounts?

Yes! We offer baker’s dozen pricing. If you purchase 12 treats, your 13th treat is free! You can mix and match any styles. Any combination of a dozen treats qualifies.

  • With 12 treats you get 1 more for free (13 total treats)
  • With 24 treats you get 2 more for free (26 total treats)
  • With 36 treats you get 3 more for free (39 total treats)
  • With 48 treats you get 4 more for free (52 total treats)
  • With 60 treats you get 5 more for free (65 total treats)
  • And so on… (you get the idea).
What needs to be refrigerated or frozen?

Cakes should be kept refrigerated or frozen until 15 to 30 minutes before serving. Leftovers should be refrigerated or frozen in an airtight container to retain moisture.

Most of the treats can be kept in their packaging at room temperature or can optionally be refrigerated or frozen. The cupcakes and pizza bones should be kept chilled or frozen in an airtight container for optimal freshness. You can give the treats to your dog at room temperature or as a frozen treat, whichever ways your dogs prefer them.

Do I need to heat the pizza bones in the oven?

No, the pizza bones are fully cooked and do not need to go in the oven. You can serve the pizza bones chilled or at room temperature.

Dogs can’t have chocolate. Is that chocolate?

No. That’s carob. We only use dog-friendly ingredients. Carob looks like chocolate and has a similar taste but is completely safe for dogs. (Did you really think a dog bakery would use chocolate?)

Is everything safe for my dog to eat? What are the ingredients?

Yes! We only use human-grade, dog-friendly ingredients that are completely safe for dogs. Everything is freshly made using these cake ingredients and treat ingredients.

Will my dog like it?

Does your dog like things that taste good? Most likely, your dog will love it and you will wish you had ordered a bigger size cake and more treats.

If your dog hasn’t devoured the cake and treats, try cutting the cake into a more manageable size or breaking the treats into bite size pieces.

Can I eat the cake too? What does it taste like?

Yes! All of the ingredients are human-grade. Many people love to share a slice of the cakes (with their dog’s permission).

It tastes like a vanilla cake. Don’t take our word for it, try it yourself! (If your dog will let you!)

How big and how much are the cakes?

Can I custom order specific styles, decorations, and shapes for treats and cakes?

Yes! Custom colors or decorations that stray from our normal assortment must be custom ordered at least 2 weeks in advance. We have a variety of resources for shapes to choose from that are not currently on display. Custom shapes will require custom molds to be made and require additional lead time.

We are able to decorate using your logo for your special event. Licensed decorations are only available to license holders (NBA, NFL, NHL, collegiate labels, privately owned brands and logos, etc.).
