Some oats, birdseed, lard, plastic pots and string are all you need to make a snack for visiting birds!
Step 1 – Get started
Mix all your dry ingredients together in a bowl. This should include oats and birdseed but you can also throw in kitchen scraps.
Step 2 – Pour in the lard
Melt the lard in a pan and then add it to the bowl. Use about one part lard to two parts dry mixture to get the consistency just right.
Step 3 – Mix it up
Stir everything together with a spoon and then put it into your plastic pots, with a loop of string hanging out of the mixture.
Step 4 – Cool and set
Leave the pots containing your cakes in the fridge overnight to set, then use scissors to cut them open the following day.
Step 5 – Hang them up
Now all that’s left to do is to hang your cake in a tree using the string for the birds to enjoy.
