    Yes, I spent my Friday night making a birthday cake for Lily. :D And then typed up a tutorial for all of you, with pictures! :wink:

    How to make a birthday cake for your horse!
    Ingredients
    Fresh Large Carrots
    Oats (Quaker Oats, instant oatmeal is fine)
    Flour
    Sugar
    Molasses
    Water

    Supplies
    2 Large Bowls
    Spatula
    Measuring Cup
    Cookie Sheet
    Parchment Paper (optional, but I prefer to use it)

    1. Grate several large carrots (5 or 6), or chop up into 1 inch pieces and put it into the food processor.
    I like to use the food processor because it’s quick and easy, but hand grated is fine too!

    2. Put grated carrots in bowl #1

    3. In bowl #2, add 2 cups of white flour, 2-3 tablespoons of white sugar, and 2-3 cups of (dry!) oats.
    Mix together.

    4. Add dry ingredients to bowl #1 and mix thoroughly with the shredded carrots.

    5. Add about ¼ cup of water, and then slowly add molasses. You are going to use about ½-¾ cup of molasses.
    Note: You want the consistency of the “dough” to be sticky, not runny!
    If your dough ends up to thin or runny, add more flour.

    6. Mix all ingredients together thoroughly.

    7. Put the dough onto a cookie sheet that has a piece of parchment paper on it (so it won’t stick and it’s easier to clean).
    Mold into desired shape.

    8. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes +/- a few. The cake should be dark golden brown, and slightly firm, but a little “gushy”. It should no longer feel wet.

    9. Let cool, and then celebrate! Cut up into “slices” or just rip a piece out, lol, don’t give it to them whole.


    TADA! Final product with 3 carrot “candles”. Happy 3rd Birthday Lily!

    If you have extra dough, you can make cookies with the rest. :) (Bake for 10 minutes)

    Yup, I can make 50 cookies (the size of a golfball) for about 8 dollars. Sometimes cheaper if you get the ingredients at walmart. :)
