Treat Time - Layered Molasses Birthday Cake

Spring is here, and along with it come a lot of birthdays to celebrate! Here is the favorite birthday cake among the longeared residents in our barn. When your special donkey or mule celebrates his or her next birthday, you can fix this yummy treat to make the day extra special.


Layered Molasses Birthday Cake

1 slice Whole Wheat Bread per mule or donkey

Slice each slice of bread into quarters. Stack 4 quarter slices on top of each other, spreading molasses between each one. Cut a short carrot stick that is about 1 to 1 1/2 inches long, and cut the ends of the carrot stick so that they are flat. Stand the carrot stick up for a candle on top of the cake. Cut a slice of apple into the shape of a candle flame and set it on top of the carrot candle. Now you can make one for each longeared guest that will be at your buddy’s birthday party, too.

That's all there is to it! It's fast and easy to make, and a cake your donkeys and mules are sure to enjoy - decorations and all!
