  • what are the oven settings for the chicken and bacon cake? and for how long? i would love to make that cake 4 my dogs on their special day. :-) just don’t want to set the oven too high or too low.

  • What should the oven be set for when I cook the Peanut Butter and Carrot Dog Birthday Cake? I need the answer like RIGHT away.

    • I’ve made this cake twice and the first time was a dud. I learned to place my cake at 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes. I usually get a nice golden colored cake around 13 minutes. I’mnot positive, but that degree and time frame may work for allhe cakes listed.

  • What are the oven settings for all of these cakes? I really want to make them for my doggys’ birthdays.
