To make a bird seed cake you need the following ingredients: 
- seeds (1kg)
- deep frying fat (0,5 kg)  (unused, because when it is used, it is too salt for birds) 
- decoration. I used apples from my garden, some leaves and berries. But you can also use, peanuts, nut and other things that is edible for birds. 

You also need a pan to melt the fat, a spoon to mix the seeds through the fat and a mold.

Step 2: Prepare the cake

Melt the deep frying fat in a pan. When it is completely melted, remove it from the heat. Add the seeds to the melted fat and stir it. Then pour the mixture of fat and seeds into a mold. Be careful, it is very hot! Also take care that the mold is heat resistant. I used a bundt cake mold. When the mold is filled, put it in a cold place to let the fat solidify. I put it in the fridge overnight, then you are sure that it is completely solidified. However, you can also cool it for a shorter period and outside the fridge. You can feel when the fat is hard.
