How To Make Tiny Cupcakes For Your Hamster

Spoiler alert: They really love the sprinkles!

Posted on

You can make a batch of your own. Check out the cutest, tiniest recipe, below!


⅛ cup whole-wheat flour

1 teaspoon crushed dog biscuit (about 1 small biscuit)

Fresh water

1 to 2 raspberries

Millet (optional)


Preheat the oven to 300˚F/150˚C.

Mix the whole-wheat flour, crushed dog biscuit and water together until it forms a dough.

Transfer one scoop of dough to a separate bowl. Add a raspberry and stir until combined and the dough is pink.

Dust hands with whole-wheat flour. Form the dough into 9 to 12 tiny “cupcakes” and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Top each cupcake with some raspberry mixture to look like frosting. Sprinkle with millet, if desired.

Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until firm. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Store leftover cupcakes in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Tip: Give a cupcake to your hamster as a special treat no more than once a week!
