Making Bird Seed Hanging Cakes For Our Fine Feathered Friends...

I am ashamed...I was having so much fun making these things that I didn't take any pictures. I am hoping Jan will come along behind me and post any that she took. It was a fun day here at my house (Mary's).

We all mixed up bird seed, gelatin, a little corn syrup, & water and put them into cookie cutters that are open on both ends. It was fun because they all were different shapes, so each of us took home one of a kind bird treats.

I am enclosing a picture of mine when I turned them out to dry this morning. Now, they have to dry 72 hours before hanging them out for the birdies. This was a very fun project!

Oh, and yes...a little elf left me a beaded wooden sewing spool with an angel on it...thank you, Jan!


  1. Those look good enough to eat!

  2. This was a really fun project, Mary. Thank you for teaching us, and supplying all the ...well,! I think I'll make it be our February or March Craft Day project. Cute spool, Jan! Amber put hers on our tree and I didn't take anything down till Sunday, so now I have TWO SPOOLS! They are hanging by my kitchen window! So lovely! :oD
