The Webkinz Horse is one of the original pets, and it’s special food makes the perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat! Check out this recipe from our archive.

What you need:


    • 1/2 cup shortening
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 2/3 cups milk
    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 2 tsp baking powder


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Green food coloring

What you do:

  • For the recipe: Cream the shortening and sugar. Add the two eggs and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the flour and baking powder and beat until combined. Stir in the milk and beat until mixture is light. Grease four small heart pans and pour the mixture in. You can make the remaining batter into cupcakes. Cook at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. (Until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.)
  • For the icing: Beat the butter, corn syrup and vanilla together. Gradually add the powdered sugar. Add enough milk and to make the icing a spreadable consistency. Add food coloring and beat until smooth.
  • Helpful Hints: When the cakes are cool, remove them from the pans and arrange them on a plate in a clover leaf shape. With an icing bag with a star tip, squirt green icing all over cakes. Squirt a green stem on the clover to finish it up.
Look at your local cooking store for small heart-shaped pans!
