What You'll Need:

  • Bread crumbs

  • Flour
  • Bird seed
  • Peanut butter
  • Bacon drippings
  • String

Step 1: Begin with two cups of bread crumbs (use mom's old, dry bread crusts -- the birds won't mind, and mom will like the fact that they don't go to waste).

Step 2: Mix in a handful of unsalted nuts, two handfuls of raisins, one cup of sugar, a half-cup of corn meal, a half-cup of flour, and one cup of bird seed.

Step 3: Add eight ounces of peanut butter and some bacon drippings to hold the mix together.

Step 4: Shape the bird snack into "donuts" and freeze. Once they're frozen, carefully hang the bird cakes from your favorite trees and watch the birds chow down.
