No, cats shouldn’t eat cake.
Cakes aren’t particularly dangerous for cats, but they aren’t good for them either.
Cakes contain sugar, salt, flour, baking powder, and butter. All of which are less than ideal for cats.
On top of that, a cake is very rich. It would be hard to eat it in one sitting, but if your cat somehow managed to, she might get an upset stomach or even experience some diarrhea.
If you want a special treat for your cat, consider getting her a piece of cooked chicken or beef without added salt. Just don’t give her the extra frosting she may be begging for.

How are cakes for kittens?
Cakes are bad for kittens.
Kittens aren’t supposed to eat any sugar or salt, so giving them cake would be very dangerous.
It’s possible that your kitten might not like the taste of the frosting, but even if she managed not to lick it off, she’d probably get diarrhea from eating the rest of the cake.
Kittens should only eat meat (beef, chicken, fish), cooked eggs, peas, and grains like wheat or oats for healthy growth.
Can cats eat cake cream?
Cake cream can be okay for cats, but it’s generally not the best option.
Cats do need some dairy in their diet to avoid having problems with their bones later on in life, so milk or cheese is fine.
However, you shouldn’t give your cat cream because it’s high in fat.
Cats shouldn’t eat too much fat, and cream is mostly fat.
If your cat does eat some frosting or cake that has cream, she’ll probably get an upset stomach at worst. It likely won’t endanger her life unless she eats a lot of it, but it will make her feel very poorly for several hours to days.
Can cats eat cake icing?
Icing (frosting) on the cake is almost always very sugary, and sugar isn’t good for cats.
A small amount of frosting probably won’t give your cat diabetes or anything like that, but it will upset her stomach.
Even if she manages to be sneaky about it and not get caught, she’ll still get an upset stomach, so it’s really not worth the risk.
For a special treat for your cat, give her some cooked chicken or beef without salt instead.
You can even give them raw chicken.
How is cake batter for cats?
Cake batter isn’t good for cats.
Cake batter contains raw eggs and a lot of sugar, so it’s not recommended for cats.
Plus, your cat could get an upset stomach or diarrhea from eating the batter.
If you want to feed your pet cat something sweet and that’s actually beneficial for her, consider apples, blueberries, strawberries, etc.
