      This was fun to make and held together really well. From what I can tell, the birdies give it 5 stars! Thanks for posting the recipe.

      I love this recipe, and have been making it all winter. I have had everything from Chickadees to Nuthatches, Woodpeckers to Blue Jays and Flickers, too! This will probably always be what I use when I make suet. Thanks!

      I love feeding the wild critters in my yard, and "my" birds just LOVE this stuff. I halved the recipe, did not add the sugar or fruit, subbed the flour for twice the seed. I filled two molds from the store bought cakes, and put the rest in 6 paper lined cupcakes. The little guys swarmed like never before. Homemade cake is always better than store-bought after all.
