Birdie Birthday Cake

Posted by: Susan Carter - - January 27, 1999

1 box Carrot Cake mix
1 can Fruit Cocktail (reserve juice)
1 can Cut Sweet Potatoes (reserve juice)
1/3 scraped cuttlebone
1/2 cup Flaked Coconut
1/2 cup Raisins

Use the juice from the Fruit Cocktail and Sweet Potatoes for the liquid called for in the cake mix. To the liquid I add 4 eggs (box mixes usually need 3, I add the extra one for the protein), mix in all liquids to this including vitamins if you use liquid. To the dry mix I add the scraped cuttlebone and dry vitamins. Mix well then add the sweet potatoes and mix with mixer again to chop the Sweet Potatoes into smaller pieces. Stir in the Coconut, raisons, and Fruit Cocktail. I cook it in a pound cake pan or a 9 X 13 either one works, cook till done. While still warm I ice with thin layer of peanut butter and sprinkle with coconut. Can be frozen in slices and served as needed.
