Why Make a Cat Birthday Cake?

I wanted to make a cat birthday cake for Oliver to celebrate his first birthday because he is so special to our family.

Oliver was our pandemic kitten and is very spoiled now since he is used to us being at home all the time. When he can’t find us he meows and looks for us. He’s been the best addition to our household and we love him so much! Of course, I had to make a cat birthday cake for Oliver!

How Do I Make a Birthday Cake for Cats?

Making a birthday cake for a cat couldn’t be easier! For my cat cake, I chose ingredients I knew Oliver would love. I used a can of his favorite cat food for the “cake”, molding it into shape with a champagne flute. Then I decorated the cake with dry cat food and his favorite cat treats.

Oliver loved his birthday cake! You can make this pet cake for your cat too, using your pet’s favorite ingredients.

What Can My Cat Eat?

Your pet can eat a lot of human food so if you want to make a birthday cake for your cat that is extra special, consider these ingredients:

  • Fresh beef and poultry, cooked thoroughly.
  • Fresh eggs, cooked thoroughly.
  • Small amounts of cheese.
  • Whole grains such as quinoa, cooked thoroughly.
  • Veggies like cucumbers and fruits such as bananas and berries.

Always make sure any meats, eggs, fish, or whole grains are thoroughly cooked for your pet. Stay away from chocolate, onions, garlic, grapes, and raisins as these foods are not good for your cat.

Cats are notoriously picky but if you choose the right ingredients your cat will most likely appreciate the birthday cake.

Olivier loved his cake! He is so adorable and sweet. In fact, Oliver is so silly that I try to post a daily dose of him on Instagram.

He’s become quite popular on my social media!  You’ll have to see it to believe it. –> Visit my Instagram Story here to watch one of my Oliver story highlights.

He brings us so much happiness, that he definitely deserved his own birthday treat!

You'll need:


  • After you open the can of cat food, carefully turn it upside down over a plate so the whole can is still in it's can shape.
  • With a large knife, carefully slice an inch off the top. Set that aside fully intact. (We'll use this later)
  • Cut another section of about 2-3 inches high and place that onto a festive birthday dessert plate.
  • Use a skinny glass like a champagne flute to make the cake topper. Turn the glass upside down and push into the middle of the top section of the cat food you sliced earlier. Remove the food around the outside of the glass and gently pull the glass off of the food. It should form a small circle of food you can place on the cake as your top layer.
