I love getting new cake requests. When I was asked if I had ever made an Angry Birds cake, I said no, but I can! Then I had to go figure it all out. There are so many parts of the cake that I love. I am so proud of the slingshot, even though it’s not exactly the right color. I love the rocks around the bottom tier to look like the ground below the grass from the actual game. But I love the pigs the most. They, as well as the birds, are made of fondant. They were really fun to sculpt.
I made the wood platform and boxes out of fondant that I scored with an x-acto knife before letting them dry out for a few days. One all the wood was hard, I glued it all together using royal icing. The slingshot is also made of fondant, but I inserted a lollipop stick inside before allowing it to dry. That is how I got it to stand on its own.
I made the sunshine cake topper out of gum paste so it would be really strong. I mounted it onto a lollipop stick using stiff royal icing. The birthday boy turned 4 years old! I cut his name and age out of white gum paste using an angry birds inspired font and detailed it in black using a black food coloring marker. I know that Aviv loved the cake because he was carrying the cake topper around all afternoon! Happy 4th Birthday Aviv!
