Despite its rather confusing title, the Fat Bird is in fact an ingenious way to get rid of all that horrible fat you end up with when you're cooking. It also benefits your local wildlife, too. When you're cooking something with a lot of excess fat bubbling away in the pan, simply tip it into this hilarious egg cup-style container, empty the provided bird seed in there as well, stick some string in there and put the whole thing in the fridge. After it has set, you'll have a perfect fat cake for the birds in your garden to munch on.

Hang it from a nearby branch or other suitable vantage point and watch all the local birds come and feast on all the yummy fat and bird bits, and then do it all again with some more bird seed and fat while they polish it off. Environmentally friendly and a bizarrely fun little item, the Fat Bird will help you out in the kitchen and in the garden.



  • Environmentally friendly way to get rid of excess cooking fat.
  • Turns excess cooking fat into a tasty treat for the birds in your garden.
  • Tip fat into the container, put the birdseed and string in and put it in the fridge to set.
  • Hang your fat cake from a nearby tree and watch the birds eat it.
  • Re-useable.
  • Colours may vary.
  • Includes bird seed and string.
  • Suitable for ages 12 years +.


  • H: 6 W: 8 D: 7cm.

Appears to be great

As this was bought as a gift I have not tried this, but it all appears to be as was described.

Smaller than I thought

I thought this was quite big but when it arrived, its actually quite small (fits in your hand). Otherwise great product and makes sense that its small as the birds wouldn't want it too big

Great little item for a bird lover who also likes to cook. Shame you can't pick which colour you get as I ended up with pink and the person I bought this for doesn't like pink! But I think the item itself will be enjoyed. Great little stocking filler.

A lovely idea

Bought three as presents, but have made my own fat cakes before so know the advantages for the birds and the excellent way of getting rid of the unwanted fat from the kitchen. I do find that the cakes made in this mould are too big for my fat ball dispenser though, but I don't suppose the birds will complain!

Cute and handy

I bought the Fat Bird Cake Making Kit for my mother-a birdlover- for christmas. For that reason I haven't tried it, but what I received looks like the picture, though maybe a bit smaller than I had expected. It's a cute design, and I imagine it will be easy to use any other birdseeds once the included ones run out (and the same goes for the string). Perfect gift for any other birdlovers as well I think!

I bought the Fat Bird Cake Making Kit for my partner for Christmas so haven't used it yet, but I'm sure she'll love this.

The Fat Bird Cake Making Kit was the perfect birthday present for my mum who loves watching the birds from the window. It makes a great change to all the fat balls she buys and is a brilliant way to recycle the fat. Brilliant product!

This Fat Bird Cake Making Kit looks so cute as a gift for those bird enthusiasts out there. It might be a bit messy for some to deal with though!

Kids will love it

The kids loved making these with the Fat Bird Cake Making Kit.

This Fat Bird Cake Making Kit is a lot smaller than I envisaged. I'll give it a go though. We have fairly demanding birds so we'll see if they approve!

This is going to make a great christmas present for my mum!

Novel but very practical

This is an excellent stocking-filler for all age groups, particularly anyone who likes to feed the birds. It will be used lots over Christmas to use up waste food and make sure that the birds are fed during the cold days. Excellent present.

I have bought this a little joke gift for my gran. She loves these types of novelty gifts. Exactly as described. I would recommend it to any bird lovers or anybody looking for a gift, for bird lovers.

Fat Bird Cake Making Kit

I've bought the Fat Bird Making Kit as a Christmas Gift, so can't review the actual item apart from to say it looks fun, won't take up too much room in a kitchen and should keep the birds happy! IWOOT is always top for great gifts, wonderful customer service, great delivery and good offers too. Why wouldn't you buy from IWOOT?

Waste not, want not!

A very clever idea, when you grill your bacon or whatever, you often have that good feeling when you see the fat dripping off thinking its not you thats going to eat it! The Fat Bird Cake Making Kit can be used to feed wildlife in your garden. Can be kept in the fridge and slowly filled as you cook.
