Who Are PawBakes?
PawBakes was started by 3 friends, Chloe, Lauren and Jacquelyn, who wanted to share their love for animals with the rest of the world.
They wanted to create wholesome, delicious treats that could be baked at home by pet lovers just like them. Something simple and convenient that even the novice baker could successfully bake without too much stress or hassle.
Available in 2 flavours at the moment, Peanut Butter and Honey Flavour Doggie Biscuits and Peanut Butter With Doggie Friendly Chocolate Icing Cup Cake Baking Kit, these kits of super convenient for the busy dog owner.
The Benefits Of PawBakes Bake Your Own Pet Treats?
Quick and Easy
I love to bake for my 2 dogs, Coco and Joey. But it’s not a job I normally take on unless I have a bit of time and are in the mood for cleaning up after. Whatever way I do things I always end up with flour on the floor and lots of pots to wash.
With the PawBakes treats, it was quite the opposite and I was really surprised that there was so little mess with them. I decided to bake both kits at once and because there were no ingredients to weigh out or chop it was really easy and quick to make them.
It was also great there were not too many steps to making the treats and the instructions were super simple. I hate it when you have a massive recipe to follow and it’s so complicated that you need to keep checking to make sure you were doing it correctly.
I do bake quite often for the dogs so I had invested in quite a lot of cutters, however, I had to order them all online. It’s not that easy to get a bone shaped cutter in your local shop. So I was delighted one came in the kit.
Also, it’s a cutter that will last so if you did decide to whip up some of your own recipes you could still use it.
When you try out a recipe yourself, or you make up one of your own, you never really know how it will turn out. Did you weigh everything correctly and add enough of everything.
With PawBakes you literally just empty the powder into the bowl and add either water or eggs and oil, then you stir. So if you can open a bag and stir you are pretty safe that these will turn out well.
The only incident I had was melting the doggie friendly chocolate drops for the topping. Warning! When you melt chocolate over water the bowl gets really hot! (I’m sure most people know that!)
PawBakes Peanut Butter And Honey Biscuit Baking Kit
These were really easy to make. Empty the contents into a bowl and add water. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes, roll and cut. I made these and then while they were resting I started making the cupcakes.
When I came to cut them I actually got 12 of the biscuits bones out of it. I presume I had rolled them slightly thinner than recommended, but they turned out really well.
Most important the dogs loved them! They had a good sniff and then tucked into them.
PawBakes Peanut Butter Flavour Doggie Cupcake Baking Kit
The cupcakes are so cute when they are made. Another easy recipe, just add an egg and some oil to the powder and stir. The cupcake cases come in the kit so you don’t need anything.
The topping really makes them so special and once you have it melted it’s really easy to decorate them. It would be handy if it came in a tube ready to ice, but once you get the hang of melting them it’s actually really easy.
The dogs really loved these. I had a taste of the chocolate myself and it’s really tasty so I am not surprised they were woofing them down.
Review Of PawBakes: Bake Your Own Pet Treats
These are really convenient and easy to make. The results are brilliant and the dogs totally loved them. The smell of them baking was also really gorgeous and I had 2 dogs sat next to me the entire time.
The price point is reasonable. Any ready to bake product is going to cost more than if you made it yourself. However if you consider the time you save then I think the additional cost is well worth it.
It would be nice to be able to buy a larger refill pack of the cookies that perhaps makes 30+ cookies, as with 2 hungry pointers they like their treats!
