They Say It's My Birthday



Today the world's most beautiful, most amazing TB (who's named Storm City Slew, can't let it all go to her head) was born! It's the second birthday she's had with me, and I'm hoping for at least 20 more. I have everything loaded in my car, and the plan is to run out the door to go see the princess and spoil her rotten.

The recipe for this years cake goes as follows:

1 cup dry oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 cup shredded carrots or apples
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup molasses

Mix ingredients in bowl as listed. Make little balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

I put mine in a muffin pan and they turned out just fine! Denali's cake is the same thing, just shaped like a huge cake :) I'll take lots of pictures and post them tonight or tomorrow. Happy Monday everyone!

Hi! I've just started following your blog and I love the birthday cake idea. I might just do that this June for my mare's birthday.

Happy Birthday to the sweetest mare I know! I hope she's feeling better. I switched my pottery night to Mondays, so I won't be out tonight, but have fun!

Thanks for posting the recipe! I saw it on Hercules' FB and it looks super yummy. Can't wait to make one when my fella hits the teen years in a couple of months. :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Denali!! Love the blog!
