Angry Birds Birthday Cake

Angry Birds Birthday CakeI 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.

Fondant Angry Birds

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.

Angry Birds Cake Topper

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!
