I made this Angry Birds Cake for my son's school for a charity auction to raise money for kids summer camp programs.
The base is a 10" x 10" square and the top is a 6" x 6" square decorated to look like a box of TNT. All of the birds, pigs and decorations are all made from fondant and glued on with melted white chocolate. Make the birds and sling shot ahead of time so they set hard. I inserted a toothpick into the bottom of the slingshot to have something to stick into the cake when it came time to stand it up.
My kids love playing Angry Birds and thought the birds were their plastic toys.
I made this Angry Birds cake for my husband's birthday because he loves the game. I made the birds and pigs out of rice Krispy treats I rolled into a ball and triangle shapes. I dyed white chocolate different colors and dipped the rice krispy balls into them. I purchased the eyes and pieces I used for the beaks at a craft store in the cake isle (I got lucky)and the pig noses out of green M&M's.
I made the blocks out of Nutter Butters and just stacked them and hit the pigs under them. And I made the sling shot from rice krispy treats I molded and put a toothpick in the bottom to hold it up.
The birds on this Homemade Angry Birds Cake are made out of fondant (the Wilton primary color pack). Just modeled them after some others I saw on the web. Hint: For the white, or for other smaller details, use AIRHEADS candy! You can nuke them for 10 seconds to soften and they are so easy to mold...and tasty!
The cake itself is 2 9x13 chocolate cakes. The base is one full cake, then cut the other into thirds for the "mounds". Used Little Debbie snack cakes for the wood structures.
I couldn't find a slingshot ANYWHERE, so I used a wooden letter "Y" I found at Walmart, then found a replacement slingshot band in the sporting goods store.
I made this Angry Birds chocolate birthday cake for my son and his friend who have just turned 6. The cake is gluten-free as my son has just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. The cake contains buckwheat flour and ground almonds in place of regular flour. It was lovely for my son to be able to enjoy a birthday cake and for his friends to eat gluten free without even realizing it.
The cake was sandwiched with Nutella and then I coloured ready made white icing to make the birds.
I made this Angry Birds cake for a friend's son. This is a 11 x 15 marble sheet cake with pure white butter cream icing. I printed out coloring pages of the Angry Birds and then traced the image backwards onto wax paper with black piping gel. I flipped the wax paper over to transfer the outline onto the cake. The birds were then filled in with the appropriate colors. Borders and writing were added last.
The cake turned out very cute and was quite easy to do.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could make a cake like this! It was either producing a great cake for my grandson's birthday or facing a disappointed little boy, which was not an option for me.
So I researched fondant frosting creations online and this Angry Birds Cake is what I produced. Well, this AND one happy little boy! If I can do it so can you. Have fun!
This Angry Bird Birthday Cake is a 12" round cake with red and white Wilton Recipe BC frosting. Eyes, eyebrows, beak, tail all made from edible frosting paper cut to shape using regular scissors. Writing on tray is yellow decorator gel. A lighter color background ~ such as sky blue, would've looked better to help the tail stand out so I didn't have to outline it.
