Frozen Ice Cake by danedame.com
Last week we rounded up some Easy Homemade Frozen Dog Treats which included the Frozen Ice Cake for dogs. When I first saw the frozen doggy ice cake I didn’t realize there was an actual kit to make it that you could buy called the Kool Dogz Ice Treat Maker! Although the kit is pretty neat I thought it would be easy to try out on my own by just grabbing a bowl and freezing some dog toys and treats in it for an easy, fun, challenging and delicious treat!
What you’ll Need:
- an empty ice cream bucket of sorts or a bowl
- chicken stock (optional)
- dog’s own toys
- new dollar store toys for your guests dogs to take home (optional)
- your dog’s favorite treats, carrots, small frozen pupsicles (the sky’s the limit)
- you could also freeze a rope or stake through the ice cake for hanging or sticking in the ground to give it height
Throw your chosen dog toys and treats into your bucket, fill with water and a bit of chicken stock for flavour. Don’t worry if some of the toys float they will still freeze as toppings on your cake. If you’d like to hang your frozen cake for your dogs, freeze a rope in it with the end hanging outside that way you can attach it to something to make it a bit more difficult for your dogs to reach (just a caution it will be heavy, so keep safety in mind). In the case of danes, you may want to have the frozen cake at their height so you can freeze a steak of sorts in the middle of the cake (if it will fit in your freezer) to stick it in the ground with the cake propped up on top. You could also set it on a chair for them for easier access.
