Contains 1 silicon funny feet case and pack of bird seed with string and instructions to make your very own fat cakes to keep the birds in your garden happy.

Not only a brilliant educational tool for children, being able to see differing bird varieties and learning the value of caring for nature, it is also a great environmental tool, using up excess fats from cooking promotes the value of utlising food wastes.

or you can buy 6 balls for 49p at B&M, or 8.16666666666666p each. (so infact, seems a tad expensive costing the equivalent of about 28 balls already made)

I think you are missing the point, these retail at £4.99 normally, they are £2.29 delivered. They are not targeted at anyone wanting to buy pre-made fat balls for birds, as already said.

It could equally be argued you could buy for possibly cheaper than £2.29 any silicon cup cake tray, or even utilise a cupcake baking tray.

The fact of the matter is, for £2.29 a cute silicon tray with bird feet, with a starter pack of bird seed is a good educational tool and fun for children and utilises left over cooking fats from your own home.

What a brilliant idea! It's always been a nightmare getting rid of old fat. Great idea - thanks!

Do not use salty fats though, like bacon fat. That is no good for birds.

and here me was thinking birds meant girls

My kids would love this, thanks cicobuff

Love it! Thanks.

Seems a great idea for kids... can't see any problem with them playing around with boiling hot fat.

String, empty yoghurt pot & a pack of bird seed from Poundland should do it. Teach your kids how to save money at the same time!

Nice find - my 4 year old has been desperate to make some more since making them at nursery. This will be a nice wee surprise pressie for her. Have some heat

I think as with a lot of things, common sense prevails with "Parental" supervision.....it does say on the video not to pour boiling hot fat into the silicon mold for obvious reasons (or maybe not!) I certainly hope it doesn't encourage kids to go ahead and take the just cooked chips in the fryer pan off the hob and start pouring!

True, but a pack of seeds and a empty yoghurt pot doesn't look as fun to kids (its all visual encouragement) and only costs about 70-100 pence less than this deal, and a silicon mold would have far greater longevity than a brittle yoghurt pot

Just offering a lower cost alternative, plus you get a lot more seed for your £1. I'd get the kids to be creative and draw faces on the yoghurt pots (Munch Bunch probably best as they are plain) and the yoghurt pots are only used once anyway so their durability doesnt really matter too much - plenty more pots in the fridge!

Got one for a friend with a B&B, she has lots of breakfast fat to get rid of

I hope the birds are happy !

this is free on your water supplier's website!

My cat will love this

I make these for myself, mmmm Saturday night in front of the telly and couple of lard cakes!

Get one free from Yorkshire water if you live there (apparently people have ordered when not in this area and recieved too, worth a try either way I suppose)

Think of the kids health, surely things aren't that tight are they?

I think you will find its for kids to make (with supervision of warm fats) and our birded friends to eat!

Do not use salty fats though, like bacon fat. That is no good for birds.



It's fine as long as you also put out some lager.

The first rule of fat cake is that nobody talks about fat cake.

Isn't it easier to just hang out a string of supermarket 'Value' sausages? Plenty of fat and so much cheaper.
