“I Don’t Always Bake, But When I Do, It’s for My Dog”
Dog treats are what we know and baking for our pups is what we do best! Here at Puppy Cake, we manufacture and sell cake mixes, ice cream mixes and a cookie mix, all for YOUR DOG!

OUR SHARK TANK EXPERIENCE:
- Featured on Season 3 - February 2012
- Sharks Present on the Panel: Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner (premiere episode) and Robert Herjavec.
- What did we ask for: $50,000 for 25%
- Result: No deal. However, the exposure was so great that in the month that the episode aired, Puppy Cake’s sales were higher than the entire year prior. One year later, Kelly was able to work on the company full time. Carry just 3 products, Puppy Cake expanded into 17 products!
- Sales exploded and if Kelly were to go on the show now, she would likely get a deal. What Puppy Cake did in a year at time of filming, it now does in less than 3 weeks. Kelly went from working out of her home to a 5,500 square foot facility that is getting too small ??
- Highlights: Kevin O’Leary said, “Who cares if your dog dies, just buy a new one.” Lori Greiner thought that Puppy Cake was a good idea, but in order to have a business, Kelly needed to offer a full line of products. Mark Cuban called Kelly a “wantrepreneur” because the sales were so low after 5 years of business.
- Behind the scenes: The executive producer, Yun Lingner, contacted the Puppy Cake website and asked to call her. That was the first “interview” and Kelly was fast tracked. Six weeks after the phone call, Kelly was standing in the Shark Tank studio. Shark Tank is filmed in Los Angeles. Contestants are unable to hang out with the Sharks behind the scenes or get to shake their hands
