Let’s face it; most of us prefer our pets to humans.
That means when it comes to marking their milestones, we’re not afraid to go all out.
And if there’s a doggie birthday party coming up in your house, one Cork business has everything you need to cater it.
Charlie’s Dog Bakery is Cork’s first handmade dog treat and dog birthday cake bakery… and the only spot where you can pick up an entire party pack to make their day extra special.
Inspired by her adorable pug/Jack Russell, Charlie, owner Jacqueline Griffin decided to offer her tasty non-toxic treats to pet lovers all over the country, opening an online shop in 2016.
These days Jacqueline hand makes all her own food colouring using only natural sources such as red cabbage, beetroot and kale. Even the icing on her doggie birthday cakes is 100 percent dog friendly and made by Jacqueline using tapioca flour, yogurt powder and vanilla.
The Ultimate Dog Birthday Party Package (€28 here) contains all the essentials:
One adorable round birthday cake (frosted with your pet’s name, age, paw print and peanut butter or banana bones…)
A box of Birthday Age Cookies for sharing…
A special customised doggie party hat…
A paw print balloon to alert your guests where the fun is going down.
And a selection of Pupcakes…
Your friends will say you’re barking mad but to us this sounds like an absolute howl.
