Talking Birthday treat inspiration

Hey all,
It will soon be Lil's first birthday -April 1st- and i'm starting to wonder what I could buy/make her.

So, what do you all do for your hamsters on their birthdays?
Make a ham suitable tiny cake?
Buy them a new item for their cage?

Look forward to hearing your suggestions

It's hard when they're so spoilt they have just about everything they need lol! but I always find something new for them for the cage or for out of cage time as a birthday present, if you can find a good recipe for ham safe cake then I think it's a great idea to make a little one for them, I just tend to go a bit overboard with their favourite treats on birthdays.

I've been wanting to make these hamster poptarts for ages but haven't got around to it, could be a good idea for a birthday though! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdk5FckDlg0

Usually I give mine a 'birthday tea' with their favourite things so for Lord James's 2nd birthday last year, I gave him chicken based cat food with a couple of mealworms mixed in and Victoria will have a mix of small pieces of her favourite vegetables when she turns two in April.

I used to buy them a new toy for their birthday but mine seem to get quite attached to the toys that they already have.

at first she went straight for the carrot candle and mashed banana but after I broke the cake open she tucked into it. I took about half of it away as it was human muffin sized

I'm sure she'll enjoy a second serving tonight
